New year, same list - Beginning of the year update!

I thought it would be a good idea to see where I was and what I want to focus on this year. I was actually going to do this end of last year, but it turned out to be an extremely busy time work-wise and I didn't quite have the energy, so here I go with a quick update!

2018 End-of-year Update!

I seem to have completely abandoned the idea of doing monthly posts (although I'd love to get back in it for 2019), but I thought the end of 2018 deserved an update on how I'm doing on my Mission 101 list! In January I'll officially have 9 months left in this current list. Here's the status of my goals:

COMPLETE: 6 (Wow. Only 6 fully complete after 2 years? That's kind of sad.)
IN PROGRESS (no lapses): 19
IN PROGRESS (some lapses, but still going for partial achievement): 12
INCOMPLETE AND DISCARDED: 6 (Of those goals, 5 are "failed" and the other one is a goal I decided I was no longer invested in and voluntarily discarded)

What I find interesting is that this list shows that I have completed, am working on, or have worked on 43 goals- which means that the majority of the goals on my list are still untouched! Some of them I could claim I've kind of worked on, but it's not "official" progress- for instance, on the goal where I get book recommendations from students and actually read them, I've actually gotten 3 of the 5 suggestions- I just don't want to mark it in progress until I've actually read one of them. When I get to the end of the M101 period in September 2019, I'll repost the whole list with a line or two of comments on what I did or didn't do for each one.

Around September of last year, I started randomly choosing a goal from the list (using a random number generator) and writing it down in my planner to focus on, and try to make progress on, each day. It wasn't entirely successful- I did a lot more thinking about the goal I'd randomly picked than actually doing anything to work on it- but I'd like to try it again in 2019, with a little more intention behind it. I'm excited to see what I can accomplish in the last 9 months of the challenge!

Happy New Year, everyone! Hats off to anyone who is starting a new list this coming year. I hope your progress is productive and enjoyable!

5 months in!

This is going to be a quick one! Hope you're all doing great with your lists.

Start date: April 1st, 2018
End date: December 27th, 2020
PROGRESS: 6/101


In progress

1. Read only female authors in 2018.
2. Read 25 books in a year. (22/25)
5. Read 12 non-fiction books. (4/12)


I have continued focusing on female authors this year. Since my last entry, I have read four more books: The Valiant (Lesley Livingston), Bel Canto (Ann Patchett) and A Darker Shade of Magic (V.E. Schwab) are the fiction books I have read, of which Bel Canto has been the highlight for sure! The non-fiction book that I have read was The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying up, by Marie Kondo, which has certainly been life-changing and eye-opening! I have done my fair share of spring cleaning right as fall begins!

43. Go to 3 fitness classes. (2/3)

I attended a Hard Yard class and almost died attempting to keep up, but hey, I did it! It also reminded me how much I dislike group classes and cardio, no matter how cool they are nowadays.

Done!

34. Register with a GP in your area.
Seems silly to have this be a goal, yet this city makes every process so annoying that I had to make something out of it to move my sorry ass. I am now all sorted and seeing a doctor for a revision next week!

As I mentioned, short! This month I was focused on some other things/aspects, but I have clearly been reading a lot!

Wish you all a lovely October! ♥

Hi all!

Summer is coming to an end and it is time to assess how my challenge is going this time around. Let me start, however, with saying that should you not read this post, at least note this: I just visited Scotland (Edinburgh and Highlands) and it is an amazingly beautiful country and I strongly recommend anyone who has the chance to visit it!

Now, to the actual post.Collapse )

List 4, Update 8 / 143

Aug. 21st, 2018 | 11:19 pm

Another update!

In progress:


Sending faxes to my elected officials every day, as well as a postcard or two a week. (11 - 9) (11 - 10)

Commenting on other 101 in 1001 blogs when I can! (11 - 14)




Completed:

I went to a jazz festival in town. It was rained out, but I went for a little bit both days. Plus I also spent some time at a street performance in my new neighborhood. I'll still make a point of going out to things, but I think both together count. (3 - 5)


Failed:

None!

List 4, Update 7 / 143

Aug. 12th, 2018 | 11:54 am
posted by: cactus_rs in mission101

Another update!

In progress:

I finished Sacred Economics. Despite a lot of woo and the occasional bit of nonsense, it was an interesting and enlightening read, and has shifted my attitude around money. I'll be the first to admit that the book could use a little trimming, but there's still a lot to take from it. It's available for free at the link up there, if you're looking for something to read! (9 - 2)

Sending faxes to my elected officials every day, as well as a postcard or two a week. (11 - 9) (11 - 10)

Sent a couple more postcards to friends! (7 - 1)

Commenting on other 101 in 1001 blogs when I can! (11 - 14)

I hit this month's activist thing quota as well. (8 - 5)

Bought the latest issue of Situation Stockholm. (12 - 3)


Completed:

I realize now that I'm way more ahead on my Simbi deals than I realized. Have adjusted this goal accordingly. (11 - 15)


Failed:

None!

3 / 101 completed!

Monthly Update No. 1

Apr. 29th, 2018 | 02:38 pm
posted by: laeryn in mission101

Hi All!

Hope you are all well. I thought I might try to check in every month (or every couple of months, depending on how life's going) to try and keep a good pace on this challenge this time around. I know it is still a couple of days left, but weekdays are pretty hectic for me so why not.
