I love the idea of setting goals for life, and get really excited when I can cross them off the list!  A few years ago I put together my life list (aka bucket list).  I have a lot of lofty goals on that list, but God willing I will still have 50+ years to get that done.  The goals on this list are more short term.  My hope is to live life to it’s fullest but without setting goals I have the tendency to sit around and put things off ’til tomorrow, or next week, or next month, until eventually I’ve wasted my time and done nothing.  This list was strangely difficult to put together, but I’m hoping that once these next 1001 days have passed the experience will have been incredibly rewarding.
