12:07 am - One year to go!
Hi everyone!

I'm not sure how many of you will remember me, but I created this community 18 months ago. I remember how excited I was at the time to find such a huge group of people who were as excited about this project as I was. Tonight I have had a great time reading back through your posts and seeing how much progress has been made.

Congratulations to everybody who is still in the game!

My own 101/1001 List has been an enormous driving force in my life since this began, and I document my progress over at my blog - Scarlet Words. I've achieved a mountain of goals that were eternally sitting in my "one day" pile, and I'm so excited about crossing off more exciting tasks over the next twelve months.

Here in Australia, it's 28 September 2009. This means that I have exactly 365 days in which to achieve the rest of my goals. I feel that I am not powering through my list as quickly as I would like, but I'm hopeful that this time next year I will have all 101 tasks crossed off! And if not, that's okay. I have already achieved so much more than I could have without this project!

I thought it might be nice to check in with everybody on this milestone day, and see how you're feeling about your own list.  If you have a minute, I'd love to read your answers to the following questions:

  • How many tasks on your list have you completed?  How many are "works in progress"?
  • Which item are you struggling with the most?
  • Which item do you plan to finish next?

I'll answer these myself in the comments.

Cheers, and best of luck for the next 365 days!

How many tasks on your list have you completed? How many are "works in progress"?
I have completed 53 items, and I have started 22 others.

Which item are you struggling with the most?
I have struggled with my weight loss goals, as we've just come out of a long Winter full of kickass carby food and short, dark days. Now that Spring has hit, I'm doing so much better!

Which item do you plan to finish next?
Right now I am working hard to finish my 100 Snapshots goal. I am also reading the dictionary from cover to cover (I'm up to "M"!) and learning 30 new recipes from around the world.

How many tasks on your list have you completed? How many are "works in progress"?
22 done, 19 in progress.

Which item are you struggling with the most?
Anything which costs money - learning to drive, learning to ride a motorbike, almost all the doing stuff and going places goals...

Which item do you plan to finish next?
Reading Lord of the Rings; I'm about half way through and keeping up with my chapter a day schedule.

I'm still keeping half an eye on my list. The problem is that life changed dramatically in the first year or so of doing this, and my goals have really changed a lot. I've moved the part of my list that I'm really focused on, along with a few new goals, over to 43 Things.

* How many tasks on your list have you completed? How many are "works in progress"?
I've completed 34 items, 14 are in progress.

* Which item are you struggling with the most?
I struggle most with the ones that involve going somewhere on an outting with friends and family. Since I work weekends, it is more difficult for me as I need to save up holiday hours to be able to do the things with others which others take for granted.

That is why I put it on my list though. I do struggle to make time for relationships in my life. I don't work many hours, but what I do work is difficult hours. So I added them to this list to remind myself to make sure I don't forget about the people I love.

* Which item do you plan to finish next?
Number 87 on my list to get married, which we are working towards now. The wedding is in February so as you can imagine a lot of our time, effort and finances are focused on that at the minute.

Number 64 and 65 are to go on a plane and a boat since I have never been on either which I've made sure we have planned for our honeymoon so I'm loving how it is all coming together there.
