101 Projects in 1001 Days

Yesterday, I was reading thru posts on Miracle Morning group on Facebook and someone had suggested this link to create 101 projects in 1001 days as a goal setting exercise for someone who doesn’t know what to do. I thought it was perfect for me. I’ve been feeling like I’ve been wasting away my idle time on my off days. First of all, I’m not used to have so many days off, so it gets me restless. I try to go hiking with friends and stuff like that, but it seems like I might have more and more free time as overtime is out of the picture for a while.

Without any delay, I created the account and off I went to add my goals to the list. They have so many suggestions for the list that I didn’t need to come up with anything of my own. I might add some of my own later on. I also added one category that listed the things I’ve already done in the past. Just gives a good feeling that even though you feel like you haven’t done  much, things that you take for granted are in other people’s wish list/bucket list. Looking at that list makes you feel more grateful about things you’ve already done.

I decided on three lists, one to finish by 101 days, another to finish ‘someday’ and one that I’ve already done.


  1. Plant a Tree.
  2. Run a marathon.
  3. Visit all 50 states.
  4. Eat a salad from my own garden.
  5. Hike Mount Kilimanjaro.
  6. Catch the sunrise over Annapurna range (Nepal).
