    Marisa, I made a “101 Things to Do in 1,001 Days” list; sort of like a New Year’s Resolution, but to do over a longer period of time. Surprisingly, I’ve chipped away at it, and have kept notes on it, added to it, etc. over the past 3+ years. I can’t say that I’ve finished, but it’s a great tool to keep track of goals.
