Goals

In the final approach towards New Year's, it's time to contemplate goals and resolutions. Now, pretty much every year I make resolutions, and then I fall flat on my face with them. (a lot of that reason is that I just plain forget. My memory sucks these days.) So I wasn't going to make any resolutions this year. But then, I *like* making resolutions. I like having goals of some kind. And lists! I love making lists!

Well, in my travels in blogland, I came across an idea: 101 Things To Do in 1001 Days. It's pretty straightforward. You make a list of 101 things you'd like to accomplish. You have 1001 days to accomplish these things (that's almost 3 years). They don't have to be fancy. One of mine is to spend a day at the ocean with my kids. There are a ton of great sites that will help you calculate when the 1001 days is up. I used this one. I put in a start date of January 1st, mostly because I think it's going to take at least that long for me to come up with a list of 101 things I want to accomplish. So far I have, um, eleven.

So, my resolution for New Year's has become finish my list of 101 things! mk

p.s. If you google "101 things 1001 days" you will find lots of posts, which can give you ideas if you are stuck.

I can help you out with spending the day on the ocean with your kids. We get my family's cottage on Popham Beach for at least a week every summer!
