What does one do when Hurricane Irma is barreling down? Write a blog post, of course! I’ve been putting this off for a while now, with no good reason why. With the hurricane locking me inside my home with nothing to do but watch movies and endless coverage of tornado warnings and rain bands, I decided I would finally put pen to paper, or more accurately keyboard to blog post, and write about my 101 in 1001 list.
If you haven’t seen it during your time perusing the internet, then let me tell you about an amazing goal setting project I stumbled upon the other day – 101 in 1001 or the Day Zero Project. I was originally inspired by Mackenzie from Design Darling and continued my research on Day Zero Project. The idea is simple, complete 101 goals in 1001 days. These goals can be small or large, easy or hard, and from any part of your life. 1001 days is roughly 2.75 years, which is plenty of time to accomplish 101 goals. This project goes beyond what the normal to-do list does and pushes you to accomplish things in your life that may normally be put on the back burner.
I don’t look at this project like a bucket list, because to me, a bucket list should be about grand adventures and life experiences. The 101 in 1001 project is more about thinking about where you are in your life. It makes you think about what you wish you could have accomplished by now, want you want to accomplish in a short-term and long-term time frame, and what truly makes you happy. It took me about a week to actually write out my list. I wanted each goal to really mean something to me. Some of these goals are small and can be accomplished in one go while some of these goals may take the entire 1001 days to complete.
If we’re being honest here, thinking about goals, especially 101 in 1001 days, can be tough! It really makes you look towards the future, even if you don’t know what the future holds, and plan for it. The idea behind my goals are that they can be accomplished no matter what the circumstances in my life are. And 1001 days from now puts me about 2 weeks past my 30th birthday. So this a great way to push myself to accomplish my goals and have something amazing to reflect on when thinking about my 20’s.
Goal #1: Write down 101 goals for the next 1001 days
Well that was easy! If you’re having trouble completing your list, make a few easy goals! Like I said, goal setting can be tough. Making one of your goals the completion of your 101 in 1001 list is a great motivator. I want to keep myself accountable of my goals. The best way to do this is to make my list public knowledge.

Goal #2: Create a tracking journal for my 101 goals
This was also an easy goal to accomplish! Yay for easy goals that make me feel like I’m a boss. I’ve actually had my list and this blog ready to go for over 3 months now and got lazy about my life. That is actually a horrible feeling and something I hate saying (or writing) out loud. After school ended and the job applications started going out (with constant rejection emails coming in), I have finally decided to get serious about this blog! Not only will this blog be a way to track my 101 in 1001 goals, but also a place to share recipes, beauty tips, travel diaries, weight loss, and more.
