What goal should I focus on next?

Would you like to comment?

  1. Hats off to you! That's a lot of goals. I hope you're having a blast checking each one off of the list :)

    1. So many goals! But it's really helping me stay focused I'm thoroughly enjoying it

  2. Alice, I really love this idea! I just don't think I could think of enough things I want to achieve. You've really cracked on, Look forward to the next update x

    1. It took a while to think of 101 goals but it really helps you sit down and focus on right where do I want to be in 3 years or so

  3. Having 101 goals seems a great idea. But I think I will try making less than that since 101 is a bit overwhelming.

    1. I completely understand but I think over 1001 days it works out something silly like 2/3 goals completed a month which sounds much more achievable

  4. This is such a fabulous idea! So many great goals and it sounds like you're doing really well 😊 I'm also super jealous you're going somewhere with an infinity pool - I'll look forward to reading all about it!

    1. I'm so so excited for my holiday it can't come soon enough
