What I Learn from Your 101 List
I recently went through every posted 101 list in Day Zero List Makers in order to count goals that fell into certain categories for awards. Yesterday I posted the Teacher’s Pet Award which went to California for the most learning related goals. I think you can tell a lot about a person from their 101 list. Both who they are now and who they are trying to be…
So what are some things I learned from your 101 lists?
- Most 101ers won’t come close to winning one of these goals.
- A lot of the lists were so varied that there wasn’t a huge number of goals that fit into one specific category. This is by no means a bad thing! I don’t think there is a benefit of having a lot of one kind of goal or having a varied list, as long as they’re goals you want to do, don’t worry about what category they fit in.
- Everyone loves food!
- I summed up the totals of each category and food was the highest. Now I counted anything that had to do with food towards this category including: recipes, restaurants, family meals, holiday meals, picnics…
- A lot of people are trying to make up for all the food goals :)
- The 3rd highest category was fitness/health related goals.
- People are trying to get away.
- The 2nd highest goal was travel related. This one was kind of hard to count because some goals were obviously “travel” like “Go to Japan”, but others I wasn’t sure if they were local or travel, like visiting a specific museum. However, overall almost every single person had at least one travel goal.
- We are a thoughtful bunch :)
- There were a lot of donating, volunteering, being nice, gift giving, ect goals.
I’m always impressed with what people come up with on their lists! Luckily we started Goal Thieves and I can just steal the creative goals :)
