As you can see, I have been busy working on these things the past 9 months. You can also see that I have read way more books already than I thought. It looks like my goal should have been 50 or 100 books even, but honestly at the time I created this list I hadn't read a book in months. I have heard so many people say they are too intimidated to make a list, but honestly if you want to just go for it. Yes, it will take a few days to come up with enough things, but it is so fun to work to completely them! Check out my post on how to make a 101 in 1001 list for more tips! 

How do you stay motivated to do things? Share in the comments!
