I know I’ve done it before, but I never finished. So, I decided to start a new 101 things in 1001 days list. The main difference is that this time, these aren’t things I feel that I have to do. These are things that I need and want to do. I’m hoping that will make a difference and that I’ll finish the list.

I’ll be tracking my progress here on my blog and also at Day Zero. If anyone else decides to start a list (my whole two readers), please let me know in the comments – I’d love to follow your progress!
