I wanted to let you all know that I’ve edited and updated my current 101 in 1001 list to include a list of goals for my pregnancy and transition into becoming a mom. I wrote a post in 2015 about knowing when it’s time to change your goals and just as I found myself needing to update my list to account for a cross-country move back then, I realized I wasn’t feeling motivated by my current list because it didn’t reflect the massive change I’m about to undergo. It was time for a refresh!

*original post

1,001 days is a long time and it’s hard to know at the outset what life will look like at the end or even the halfway point, so I’m a big believer in editing your goals to account for any new circumstances. I don’t change my list frequently or add things I’ve already done just to be able to cross something off, but one or two comprehensive edits over the course of 2.75 years feels totally reasonable to me! I’m now so much more excited about my list and feeling reinvigorated to cross off lots more goals before and after our baby arrives this fall.

If you’ve joined me in writing a 101 in 1001 list, please be sure to let me know so I can add a link to the end of my list! I love checking in on your progress and getting inspired by all the goals you’ve set for yourselves. And if you’ve lost steam because your current list feels a little dated relative to what’s going on in your life, don’t be afraid of a little overhaul!

  1. I also changed several of my 101 in 1001 goals a year into the process! It definitely revamped my excitement for the challenge, and I love that the new items on it were more relevant to our needs now. It’s hard to predict what your life will look like 2.75 years out, so I’m glad to see I’m not the only one who is all for changing items that no longer work!

  2. For a dentist, Dr. Diette in Darien is the BEST. Love him. On your life insurance note, it’s a lot cheaper to get pre-pregnancy in case any of your readers are looking to buy term health insurance! It’s also offered through many employers for pretty cheap – I have $250k of coverage for $20/month.

  3. I’m a financial planner and I’m so glad to see you’ve added life insurance and a will to your list! So many of my clients get hung up on who would take custody of their children if something happened to both of them (afraid of hurting someone’s feelings, worried about being a burden, etc.) that the process stalls and they do nothing. It can always be changed in the future if family circumstances change but it’s so important to have a basic set of documents in place just in case. It’s one instance where “done” is better than perfect.

  4. I was interested to see that changing your last name was still on your list. Does that mean you having legally changed it yet, or you still go by your maiden name? Just curious!
