  2. Woo, 101 Things in 1001 Days is awesome. I did a 101 list back in 2012/2013. I didn't finish all of my list but it sure motivated me to go out and try, make and do new things that I otherwise wouldn't have. I'm sticking to smaller monthly bucket lists for now but I might try 101 Things again in the future.

    You've got so many great things on your list - how did you come up with all the ideas?
