101 Goals in 1001 Days

Last night I attended a marvelous program at one of the networking groups in the area. The speaker was Melissa Jill Hester, one of the really fabulous photographers here in Phoenix. This was a different kind of talk. While the second part of her program was photography related, the first was on goal setting. Melissa is taking part in a current trend "101 Goals in 1001 Days".

I'm so intrigued....I'm going to do it, too.

Melissa was kind enough to not only to share her 101 goals, but suggest that the audience steal any of her goals that looked good. So many of hers were so good that making my list is going to be really easy ;-)

I thought it would be fun to share the goals here along with how I do. So here are my first ten. As I work on it, you can watch the progress of making my final list on my TADA LIST.

1. Blog twice a week.
2. Hike once a month
3. Read 25 books that will change my life
4. Learn how to make broccoli-cheese strata
5. Improve the packaging of my products
6. Go Snowshoeing
7. Do a Trash The Dress session
8. Donate 10 pieces of clothing I'm not using
9. Make 1000 friends on FaceBook
10. Get a wedding published in Arizona Bride Magazine

Great start to your list Marcia! I like your idea of posting more goals as you go. It'll be exciting to see your progress!

Thanks Melissa!

Told my husband about it and suggested he try making a list...his answer?

"...that's too overwhelming! I think if I did that the first goal on my list would have to be to make a 101 goals list!"

On your list of 25 books, I would like to recommend "The Shack". It is a powerful story that I found so rewarding. Check out their website at

Thank you Vicki, I'll check it out.

Last year, I made a goal of reading 52 books in one year and while at this point I won't quite make it (I'm on book #43) I found that the books I was drawn to really were more toward personal development Good Part? I'm becoming better developed. Bad Part? most were more like a book and a half. So while I won't achieve that particular goal, I learned a lot about myself and was able to focus on a more achievable goal.
