101 in 1001

101 in 1001

Yesterday I turned 27! Twenty-seven!

These last few months leading up to my birthday, I’ve been creating a list of things I want to do over the next several years… a 101 in 1001 listThis list is 101 things that I want to complete in 1001 days.  It’s a fun way to challenge myself to learnexplore, and live.

It’s crazy to think that when these 1001 days are over, that I’ll be three months and two days shy of the big 3-0! So to not waste any time, here we go…

101 in 1001 | Atwell Adventures (small)

The Mission: Complete 100 preset tasks/goals/challenges in a period of 1001 days.
Why 1001? 1001 days allows you different seasons to complete tasks, which is better for organizing and timing things like trips or outdoor activities.
Start Date:  Tuesday, October 15, 2013
End Date: Tuesday, July 12, 2016

    1. When I created my list, I tried to think big areas I wanted to work on, and then made my goals from there. I love it so far! And it definitely helps me when I update the list weekly!
