101 goals  in 1001 days

A Fun Way to Set  Goals for the  Mid-term

When goal setting, many people focus solely on short and long-term goals, forgetting about  mid-term goals. 

The 101 Goals in 1001 Days Challenge is a way to think about the mid-term goals and then track your progress.

1001 days is just  under 3 years

Your goals should be S.M.A.R.T.

Specific Measurable Attainable Relevant Time Bound

Setting 101 SMART goals can be daunting.

I've found that breaking the goals down into categories helps focus me.

I have broken my goals down into the following categories:

Personal Goals Family Goals Blog Goals Home Goals

Personal Goals:

These are goals I've made to benefit myself, alone, even if they may benefit others too.

Examples from my list:

Run a 5K Make a new wreath Find a new robe I like. Read 10 fiction books.

Family Goals:

These are goals that not only benefit the family, but usually require more than one family member's effort.

Examples from my list:

Teach the boys to ride a bike Beach vacation Organize a neighborhood food drive Park picnic

Home Goals:

This category covers everything I'd like to do to our home in the next 3 years.

Examples from my list:

Master bedroom refresh Add rose beds to side yard Organize garage Paint upstairs ceilings

More Categories of Goals to Consider:

Health/Fitness Cooking Financial Professional Creative Marriage/Relationship


1. Include Variety 2. Consider budget & time constraints 3. Occasionally check back with the list & don't be afraid to adjust 

You don't want every goal to be super easy to meet or take a lot of time/effort.

BE REALISTIC! There's no sense in making goals for a perfect world.

Life happens. This list is for you! So if you need to adjust goals as life happens, do it!
