>Today is day 1001 and the project is complete.
Over the course of the project I completed 51 of the 101 goals! Which I am beyond pleased with.
I know that a lot of people go into this determined to complete every goal. And that would have been nice. But I set myself goals that would stretch me, be fun, be impossible, form habits and be things I’ve always wanted to do. I knew going in that realistically completing them all would not be something that happened.
The following is the list of the goals which were completed. Several others I tried and failed. Those I haven’t marked but may do with the next phase.
