I believe I'm about 15 short of my goal so I'm going to leave this open for goals that I come up with on this journey. After all completing all of these goals will be a big journey.

  1. - Watch more documentaries
  2. - visit the library and take advantage of the free books!
  3. - participate in a cake night 1x a month
  4. - try to be nicer to people
  5. - brush the dogs every other day
  6. -

So out of 101 goals I have around 45-50 of these goals completed or I am doing them on a daily basis. To be honest, I haven't thought a lot about what I wrote here almost a whole year ago but I must have put in my sub conscious. We have almost fulfilled all of our financial goals in a year. The cars probably won't get paid off before 4/2/12 because I have other smaller debts that are more hazardous to my financial health than my car debts are but I will continue to make my normal +$5 payments on my bills until they are all paid off!

I'm quite proud of where I am right now in less than a 1/3rd of my time to be at goal. I also added five new goals that previously I had not thought of.

What are your goals? Do you have a 101 in 1001 days lists? If so, I'd love to read it!!
