Live Intentional | 101 Goals in 1001 Days

I often find myself wondering what the point of this all is. I get up and do the same menial tasks over and over again. Don’t get me wrong, I love my family and my life is pretty damn good. I can’t complain really. I do however, wonder if there is some way I can get through every day with more intention. I am always hoping to live my life with intention but lose direction easily.

The first step for me is always making goals that I know I can meet but they are generally small and short lived. By trying 101 goals in 1001 days I can try to meet smaller and larger goals at the same time. Some of these will be easy to accomplish and some will need weeks or months to plan. My hope is to stay focused longer and ultimately live everyday with more intention.
