101 Goals In 1001 Days

I’m the sort of person who really thrives off of the idea of goals and deadlines but I never got round to setting myself New Year’s resolutions this year (what with giving birth mid-December and all that). Anyway, I’ve been trawling the internet for different ways to set goals and I came across the 101 in 1001 (or day zero) idea. I’ve set myself the challenge of completing all these tasks in 143 weeks.
