101 Tasks In 1001 Days

I'm not sure what got into me, but I suddenly feel very determinded. I want to make a positive change in my life. I have set these goals for myself because they are the things I've always wanted to do, but for some reason or another I've not done them. I come up with excuses.

goals can be realistic long as they are done in steps, if you are trying to see the end of the tunnel from the other end, good luck. You'll find that its going to get brighter the closer you get to it

Why thank you. I think they're worth my time. :)

those are some mighty fine goals you've set...some of them I have experience in lol

its living without learning

Yep. I have definitely struggled with my fear of failure. It is easier to not try then to try and fail. At least, it is easier on the ego. But then you have a life full of never having tried. Is that really living? I certainly don't think so.

the fear if failing is the bigest stumbling block known. My question goes to those who have felt the same way, how do you kow if you have suceeded when you haven't failed yet? Get back up on your feet and do it again, simple as that

It's part of my course work. I'd never read this book for fun. lol

Sounds like a great book- lol.<br />
Is this part of your colege work- or for fun?

It has five chapters. I only made them all separate goals because I knew I wouldn't read it if it was only one goal. lol

Sounds great! <br />
BTW: How many chapters does The Novel and the Menagerie have?
