101 Goals Revisited...

***UPDATE***  (click here for some details)

Awhile back - like a year ago - I wrote this new list of 101 goals to be completed in 1001 days.  I completed a few things, and then promptly forgot the list even existed until March.  Then, after looking it over, I decided to revise it a little and came up with an improved list of 101 goals.  I comlpeted a couple of things, and then...I completely forgot about the list again!

I'm making one last ditch effort to complete this list of goals.  I have revised it again.  I deleted things that no longer apply, and I added in a few things that have become more important in the last couple of months.  And, in an effort to make sure I start achieving some of these goals, I have even made a plan for a couple of them!

Here it is...the list one more time....(I think...  I hope...)
