So, I am once again restarting my 101 goals in 1001 days list. The end date for my previous list is sometime in May of 2012, and there's just no way I could get anywhere near all of my goals finished by then even if I didn't have to work and had tons of money. So, I've decided to rework my list completely and start again as of January 1, 2012. That makes my new end date September 27, 2014.

Italics means the goal is in progress
Strikethrough means the goal is done

New goals added January 1, 2012
1. Get married! (ok this is a gimme, as the wedding is set for October 13th. So we'll add... without going insane or pissing anyone off :)
2. Open my Etsy shop by no later than my 36th birthday (April 29, 2012).
3. Get one Jedi and one Sith character in Star Wars: The Old Republic to level 50.

Restarting. Yes, again. Due to the massive changes in my life in the last 4-5 months, I've lost way too much time and there are too many goals on my old list that I wouldn't be able to complete because of the changes to my finances (ie. can't afford 'em!). So I'm revamping the list and starting over again.

Italics means the goal is in progress
Strikethrough means the goal is done

So, I was thinking of restarting this, since some of the goals are no longer applicable, but then once I took out those ones, and the ones I've finished, I realized that I was having a hard time coming up with new ones. So, I've just decided to replace the ones that are no longer applicable. Also, I'm overdue for a review of how things are going. Now that I've gone through the list, I've realized I'm actually not doing all that bad. Considering my 1001 days is up on May 10, 2012, I've still got a year and a half to go. If I really work at it, I can do it!

Italics means the goal is in progress (12 in progress as of 26 November 2010)
Strikethrough means the goal is done (9 complete as of 26 November 2010)

I decided a couple of months ago, as the changes in my life started happening with my move (and getting rid of the roommate and moving in with Ian happened), that once the move was done, I was going to begin the Day Zero project, to give myself some goals to work towards. From the founder's website:

The Mission: Complete 101 preset tasks in 1001 days

The Criteria: Tasks must be specific (ie. no ambiguity in the wording) with a result that is either measureable, or clearly defined. Tasks must also be realistic and stretching (ie. represent some amount of effort on your part).

Today is day 1, and 1001 days is up on May 10, 2012.

And... my list! Cut to spare your friends list, broken down by category

Media & Art )

Spirituality )

Organization/Career )

Creativity )

Relationships/Family )

Online )

Miscellaneous )

I will be posting updates on a periodic basis, as well as anytime I finish anything significant on the list. Encouragement is much appreciated! :)

Edited 08-27-09: Removed 2 goals as I've completely changed my mind about them. Will add 2 more when I decide what I want to do. (1 added August 29, 2009)
