It’s only fitting that at the end of my college career I make some goals. Blair Britt, a very inspirational person in my life did this, and I am following suit.

The Mission: Complete 101 preset tasks in a period of 1001 days.

The Criteria: Tasks must be specific with a result that is either measurable, or clearly defined. Tasks must also be realistic and stretching (ie. represent some amount of stretching on your part.)

Starting Date: June 6, 2010
Completion Date: Umm when someone figures out that math, be a pal and let me know ;)

This was surprisingly hard, and I still have some completing to do, but I wanted to get it posted. There is also no specific order. I wrote as they came to mind. Some are goals and some are simply wishes because I would be incredibly blessed if some of these things actually happened. I know that most of these don’t fit the criteria of being measurable, but they are necessary. I also know that some of them are lifelong, but as I said, they are necessary.

  1. it's great that you've started this too... and i'm happy to help you complete No. 36... there are some great places i need to explore up there too, and two are better than one!

  2. This is truly inspiring and I can't wait to hear about all of your accomplishments. I have so much to learn from you, Chelsea! I know all of these things will happen, especially crossing that finish line looking as strong and beautiful as ever while snagging a one-of-a-kind Tiffany's/NIKE necklace ;)
