Tenth and final update: 101 things in 1001 days

101-1001aThis past Sunday my list of 101 things in 1001 days came to an end. I started it on 13 January 2013 and in hindsight I can say that some goals were far too ambitious, or the time was just not right to have those goals. On the other hand, many goals were great to help me focus on things I want and wanted to do, but always postponed for any given reason.

Let me give you a summary of the goals that I have completed, those that I have failed and the ones that are still in progress and which will be done, even after this list has closed. All the goals will show the numbers they had on the original list, where you can also find more information about the progress of specific goals.

About the goals in progress

I know the list is done, but I have left 6 goals with the status ‘in progress’, for different reasons:

Get a book deal with a publisher
As said in this goal, I have sent a book proposal to a publisher, but have never heard back from them. I have also sent a story that I have written out for potential publishing, but have not heard back from them either. About a week and a half ago, something amazing happened and being published suddenly is much closer than I ever could have imagined. More news on this will follow as soon as possible.

Co-write at least 2 stories
I have started a second story with a writing partner and this story has so much potential, that I want to continue writing it, with or without him. He is just incredibly busy and it might mean that I will continue without him. This story will be written, that part is for sure!

Get a special set of drawers for all our sex toys
We are still looking out for something that will fit our needs, and since our room is up for redecorating (which will probably happen in 2016) we will then find and buy something where we can store all our sex toys. It’s now scattered all over our bedroom in different bags and drawers, but we want all of it in one place.

Place hooks in our bedroom for naughty fun
The hooks have been bought and once we redecorate our room, these hooks will find their permanent place in the bedroom, be it the ceiling or the wall.

Be a speaker about writing/blogging
I was going to be a speaker this coming Saturday, but the conference have been postponed to the spring of 2016. I am still on the list of speakers. In the meantime I have a book fair where I will have a stand with some other authors. I am getting out there with my writing and helping other authors to get their work reviewed and promoted. Sometimes it’s scary but it’s also incredibly exciting.

Go to sauna at least 10 times
This is an ongoing thing between my best friend and me. We haven’t been able to go as much as we wanted to go in the 12-18 months, but we have a date to go in December, when our friendship will reach the nice number of 10 years!

Should you start a list?

If you like to make lists and work through them, or you need a way to organize your projects and keep focused, making a list of 101 things to do in 1001 days is a way to go about it. Once you start making the list, you will see that it’s not easy to get 101 things on it, but it tends to channel your thoughts. If you cannot work following a list, this is something you shouldn’t do at all.

If you make a list, make sure you have it somewhere where you see it frequently and that it can keep you on track with what you want to reach. Be realistic when you put goals on there, in other words, put things on there that you know is reachable, if you put some effort to it.

Another thing you might consider is to get someone to be your list buddy. Either you can put some goals on your list that you can work on together, or you can each make an own list and keep each other on track during the 1001 days.

Will I start a new list?

I am considering starting a new one, but I am still on that phase: considering. If I start one, it won’t be before sometime next year that I start it. I think I first want to be without a list for some time and focus on short term goals, which means I make a list for one day or for a week and hold me to it. I feel the 101 list is for long term goals and not for things you know you will do within one week, anyway. The 101 list is for bigger things, things you know will take some time to achieve, or that will take quite some work. To get a list of things together that don’t look too much like my first list, will be quite a challenge, so I think I will be in the ‘considering-phase’ for some time still.

Conclusion

As you can see from what I have written above and in my other 101 things in 1001 days posts (http://rebelsnotes.com/tag/101-things-in-1001-days/), this list definitely kept me focused, but still some things were too ambitious or at some time in the 1001 days it just wasn’t a thing anymore to reach the goal. We all grow as people and what might seem like something you just have to achieve one day, might be totally unimportant the next. Also, life happens around us, which means some things (like my sauna days) cannot happen as frequently as you would want. Also, outside factors can influence your list, like EdenFantasys stopping their sponsored post program or Erotic Meet London stopping to exist. Those are things you cannot know before the time. I enjoyed doing this, and even though my list buddy, Molly, and I didn’t talk about it every week, we had our occasional talks about it.

This was a great thing to do and time will tell whether there will be a second 101 list or not.

  1. Well done you, you definitely completed lots more of your goals than I did. I am glad I did it though and I might, but only MIGHT write about one at some point in the future

    Mollyxxx

  2. Gosh, you have been incredibly busy!!
    I am so incredibly intrigued by the possible book publishing, I’ve been toying with the idea of writing a book too, so this gives me hope, and inspiration too.

    xxx

  3. I’ve often thought about doing this, I tend to work at things more if I have a list and a time frame. There are some things I just keep putting off, the boring stuff like sorting out the garden, decorating and more interesting things like my painting and writing. And of course there are the really interesting things I’d like to do with Sir. I think I’m going to see if I can make a list of 101 things 🙂

  4. I’m continuing my 101 list, and considering I just started it not that long ago, I feel like it’s still manageable. Just as you stated though, some things I know I will not accomplish and I am okay with that.

    It’s great to read the finale and follow up to your list

  5. Congratulations! I am so impressed at how many you got done.

    You inspired me to start my own 101 list. You are right that coming up with that many things is hard, but I hope I can come close to how many you achieved.

    Good luck with your short term goals and I can’t wait to hear more about the possible publisher!
