Mission 101 Update

I really like the idea of mission101, where you make a goal list of 101 things to accomplish in 1001 days (which is about 2 ¾ years). Unfortunately, it's such a long amount of time – and my memory has been getting consistently worse – that I keep forgetting about the damned thing!

My last Mission 101 list ends in March, and as I look over my goals from that list, not only have I forgotten to work on them, a great many of them have changed entirely. Still, I need to focus on my goals. I'm torn between continuing with this list for the next three months, starting a new list entirely, or falling back on good ol' NYR and forgetting the 1001 days portion.

I figured I'd better do an update anyway. If only to keep myself mindful and accountable. My shame will kick my butt into gear at least a little bit. I did manage to do better than I expected, having not looked at this for almost 2 years. Whoops. I will now give a lot of thought to what my current goals should be and some realistic time frames for those.
