I've always been a bit of a sucker for lofty projects and ambitious long-term goals. Give me a new cause to (attempt) to commit to and I'll throw myself headlong into it. That is, until I'm suddenly paralyzed with the overwhelming possibilities of starting something new and give up. Usually about a week or two in.
So last year I attempted to combat my feelings of inspiration paralysis and participated in the inaugural 100 Day Project. Looking back, my initial reaction was that I kind of sucked at it. But combing through my Instagram feed, I realized that, in fact, I'd posted 65 photos from 65 different days out of the proposed 100. With my #100DaysOfOlio in 2015, I wasn't really sure what my goal was. At the time, I was just hoping to commit myself to creating, regardless of the outcome, and not get discouraged by imperfection.
This year my goal is slightly more defined.
Last November I launched a new project called Wandering the World's Largest with the goal of visiting at least one world's largest thing in every state by the time I turn 30. But, as with most of my ambitious side projects, life and work and a million other things have gotten in the way, and I haven't devoted as much time to my new adventure as I would like. So for the next 99 days, I'm committing to researching, writing, exploring, and dedicating myself to "world's largest" things in some way no matter how big or small.
