Goal update - Administrative business

I have a few types of posts on this blog of mine which are administrative in nature: things I want to remember and remind myself, that wouldn't really concern anyone else. You are welcome to indulge me and celebrate my minor successes or click next and see a cool video, no obligations. :)

I'm checking in around day 508 out of 1000 to see what progress I have made. These goals are just ideas I had mulling over in my head over time, and wrote down,  most not in stone, but many I made with serious intent to change my life and to hopefully have positive impact of the others who share my life. Many of these aren't one-time-only goals, they are habit building, adjusting my mindset and behavior and should be revisited every so often. 

Currently a little more than half way on time and over half on accomplishments. I was actually surprised at how satisfying it was to scratch off big goals and little things as well. Maybe I should just go ahead and start on that apple pie. :)
