fifty-two tasks in fifty-two weeks! That is my new thing. Huzzah!
So I know I just wrote last night that I didn’t want to overwhelm myself…but then today I read someone’s comment online how every year they write a list of fifty-two tasks, challenges, goals, or things to accomplish in one year, i.e. fifty-two in fifty-two. And a new vision was born for 2018. Anyone who knows me knows I love a challenge.
In the past I have done the 101 Goals in 1001 Days and I was quite successful at that. But 1001 Days was a bit too long for me. And I like the idea of one calendar year being my time-frame. So today I sat down, hit play on Netflix, and drummed up a list of 52 things to work on this year! Here goes!! Feel free to join me on my journey, follow along, and/or create your own list!
