Reflections on my '101 goals in 1001 days' lists

Sometimes it’s hard to just sit down and write. I want to write so that I keep the skill fresh, but sometimes it feels like I have nothing to write about, and I don’t want to journal write tonight either.

I even have a list of topics to write about, but none of them are speaking to me.

I do best, when I write about power exchange, poly, sacred sexuality, sex, or something that has happened to me that has left me feeling a strong emotion

Today, I spent most of my day writing in my new notebook. What was I writing? My task list. I used to keep it in a dayminder, a long time ago. Then I went electronic. But, that hasn’t been speaking to me either. I found myself crazing buying a pretty notebook and transferring everything from electronic to paper/pen; a purple pen of course.

I have a ‘101 Goals in 1001 Days’ List that was started in February of 2015 and is due to end in November 2017. I have over 30 items completed, but 70 to go. Most of the list to be completed involves traveling or writing. I won’t get it done by November. Too bad I didn’t put a cruise or Jamaica on it. That’s coming up in June.

Silly me, last October, I realized I had a few items done and decided to replace each finished item with a new item. So that means I have 2 lists going concurrently. One that ends this November and one that ends July 14, 2019.

Even sillier, I also have a ‘Naughty 101 Goals in 1001 Days’ list. This only has 40 items on it though. But, still that means that since February 2015, I’ve come up with 242 Goals. That’s a lot!

I have completed 44. Not bad, if I do say so myself. And if I didn’t have these goals, I may have gotten some things accomplished, but it may not have been things that struck my fancy over the years. It would have been more random, minor things. These lists help keep me on track.

And some of these items are duplicated of things I’ve done before. But, I found them fun or fulfilling and want to do them again. It is how I lost 90 pounds over the years. It’s how we came to start a business with business partners and how we bought a house.

I find these lists very useful, probably because I’m goal driven. The trick is to not become overwhelmed by them. They are a focus tool, not something to beat yourself up over.
