101 Goals in 1001 Days

This has been a long time coming. Some of my favorite bloggers shared their 101 in 1001 last year and I wanted to jump on the band wagon right away. However, it took me MONTHS  to come up with my list. It was hard! I had grand plans of sharing it January 1st since it was my starting date, but the last 5 items evaded me until last night. I'm still using the start of 2014 as my beginning date though ;) One way I plan to activate this is in part of my Powersheets. I'll choose specific goals to work on each month and make time/practical steps to accomplish them. Let's see how this goes!

  1. Love your list, Bailey! I hope that I can be one of your three for #42! :) You are such an inspiration my friend and I LOVE getting to know you better through your blog! Loves ya!!

    1. I hope so too! I got so excited because next month I have a layover in Charlotte but it's less than an hour :/ But we will make it happen someday!

  2. For your Zumba class, go to Zumba.com and enter your zip code into the "find a class" link. That will bring up all the classes available in your area. Of course, if you're in the Billings, Montana area, you're welcome to come to my class! :)

    1. Ooh good to know. And if I was there I'd totally come ;)

  3. These are amazing goals! I looove the goal for owning Hunter boots, getting head shots, taking a dance class (never thought I would say this, but WCS is a lot of fun, right?), pulling of a surprise, getting your teaching certificate, recording a vlog (you should and I definitely feel like I should do another, too now!), and pretty much every other goal you listed, too. So excited to see you cross them off! You're off to a great start. :)

  4. Great list! I would LOVE to attend Making Things Happen!

    1. I would give anything to meet those lovely ladies. Maybe someday we'll make it :)

  5. Sweet girl! I just saw your lovely comment but I couldn't reply back to you because you are a no-reply blogger :( Booo!! I wrote a blog post back in December on how to fix that so go check that out and see if it helps! xoxo!! http://simplysweetmelissa.blogspot.com/2013/12/no-reply-bloggers.html

    1. Ah! I was told about this last year and thought I had fixed it. Yikes! Thanks for letting me know :D

  6. Oh gosh, this is amazing! I love all of those goals! (p.s. aren't you just LOVING Lara Casey's goal-setting materials/series?). I am super stoked to start working towards my own goals. It is such a pumped up feeling! Keep your blogging buddies updated on how this goes throughout the year as you cross some goals off your list! You are an inspiration!

  7. We would love love love to have you at any of our Blogging Concentrated Conferences. :)

  8. Love this! I wanted to do a 101 in 1001, but since my hubs is military, that timeline would barely put him out of the Air Force, so I did a 30 by 30 instead. I love your ideas of meeting an author you love, and owning a pair of Hunter boots! :) Here's my 30 by 30: http://swtps.blogspot.com/2013/10/30-before-30.html

  9. such a great list! I love some of the things you have on here!
