51 in 501

101 in 1001 is where an individual tries to accomplish 101 goals in 1001 days.  I got this idea from Crystal at Crystal Cattle.  She references the idea from the Day Zero Project.  The website encourages people to Plan, Create, Motivate and Achieve.  To create lists, set challenges and be inspired. 

I am a very goal oriented person and thought this would be fun.  Have you ever tried to come up with 101 challenges you want to tackle?  Easier said than done, so I bring to you my list 51 in 501.  51 seemed more realistic for me and a lot less intimidating for my anxious mind to think about. 

I will make this list into a page and track my progress as I go.  Here’s to 51 accomplishments in 501 days, starting April 1, 2012!
