A List-in-Progress + Very Ambitious Goal-Setter

I stumbled across this in-progess list of 101 books to read when I was looking for info on a 10k I will be running in August. The author of this blog seems to me to be both inspiring and tiring. I wish I could be like her, but I would never be able to do what she's doing currently. Her overall goal is to complete 101 goals in 1001 days. Yet her 101 goals often contain goals-within-goals that resemble so many wooden dolls hidden inside other wooden dolls. I can't keep track, and I have no idea how she is updating so frequently and keeping everything straight. She even admits when she's missed a goal for the week. Why bother? Is anyone really going to call her on a failure? Who else can keep track of what she's supposed to be doing? If it were me, I'd be spending so much time keeping track of what I was supposed to be attempting, I'd have no time to do it.

Kudos to you, taraSG. You make the blog world much more interesting!


  1. Hehe thanks :) I'm currently unemployed so that can help explain why I have so much time to update everything. We'll see if I'm able to keep up with it once I get a new job lol. I update more for myself than anyone else. Now that I have it all organized it doesn't take much time at all to update... setting it up, however, took a couple days. It may seem like a lot of goals within goals (there are definitely a lot of links), but I can see the method to my madness :)

  2. Hi again! Well, you have definitely inspired me. I'm going to begin a 101 in 1001 list in January! :)
