As you can see, I got a lot done, but still need to do a lot as well! 

I'm not sure if I'll make the 450 movies, because I still have 146 movies to go. I also have to read 38 books, so that's unsure as well. 

I've planned not to shop in February, as that's a short month and I still haven't made that goal! I'm glad I made the "not use your creditcard for a month" goal, that was quite an easy one! 

For planning my goals, I've used the Plannerisms planner, which I did an post about here. I will do a more detailed post about planning my goals soon. 

Are you doing Mission 101? If not, are you planning to? 


  1. I'm doing the 101 in 1001 days - is that the same thing? I'm reviewing some of the items I have on mine this week and thinking of changing some of them. Mine is due to finish June 29th 2014 so I have a fair way to go yet, and there are some that are pretty much impossible, others that seemed like a good idea at the time, but I don't actually feel the need to do, and some that I think I just need to rephrase or change the measures on as they don't currently make sense. Good luck with the rest of your list. :o)

    1. Yes, that's the same thing :) For me, the stuff like "sell our house" and "buy a house" seems fairly impossible now the market is bad, so I probably won't make that.

      Good luck!

  2. What a list! Good luck with accomplishing your goals!
