How am I going to get my goals completed?

With less than a year to go, I am only around 1/4 of the the way through my 101 things in 1001 days goals. I was pretty stupid when I started as I made some of my goals to do/make 3, 5, 10 or even 101 of something, so they aren’t as easy to complete – they take time. Some of my goals I knew would not be completed right away and are only now this year even possible, e.g. finding a teaching job.

So with a large list of goals and an ever decreasing amount of time to complete them, I need to get my butt into gear this year. 

I have decided that the only way is to be more intentional with which goals I will work towards each month. It works out that I will need to be completing 5-6 goals each month in order to have them all done so I will be choosing a number of goals each month to focus on. Some times the goals I choose won’t be completed and other goals will but slowly they will start to get crossed off so by February 2016 I will have completed them all.

I started this in January using the “I choose…” method and seems to be working out so far.
