I completed 47 goals in 1001 days, and left 20 in progress. Most of those in-progress goals will be continued on the next list.

I completed only 5 of 25 of my 'Train the Body' goals, but those completed goals were pretty awesome memories. *smile* Earning my Cho Dan rank, and going four laps in a racing car were accomplishments I'm not going to forget. I also practiced better sleeping habits that will be reinforced on my next list, relearned to ride a horse (thanks, Dixie!) and practiced small-arms shooting. The in-progress goals left were mostly because I relocated from Texas. Training, weapon forms, bicycling, exercise goals, and running all had to be postponed. These goals, as well as Qigong skills and my yearly fasts, will be incorporated and continued into the next list.

I completed most of my 'Train the Mind and Emotions to prepare Spirit' goals, completing 11 of 17 goals. I completed my Tantric training, created better mindful eating practices, re-read my permanent library and new books, completed FEMA courses and CERT/Disaster preparation courses and exercises, wrote more than 100 hiaku, and enhanced my meditation practices. I was also introduced to a Zen Monastery, and got started on some in-progress meditation goals that will continue on the next list. Learning CW and becming an ARES Field Operator also was transferred to the next list.

My professional goals were also influenced heavily by relocation back to Oregon, completing only 4 of 15 goals. The Oregon Board of Psychology Examiners is still considering my circumstances, but many of my goals were not able to be even worked for most of the time of this list, and will transfer to the next list. I did tame my email list and maintained good voicemail habits, developed an effective budget, and exceeded the continuing education I needed for my licensure and certifications - helpful when I relocated back to Oregon. I also completed all of the training for a Disaster Response specialization from the American Red Cross, and I'm currently an active Disaster Action Team member, as well as on the Disaster Mental Health Team rotation.

I completed 27 of 56 my Travel/Adventures/Life goals, and had some great experiences. I sold the Fortress of Solitude, and acquired two new rank-appropriate doboks. I visited Mexico, Arizona, California, six different caves, more than 10 museums, and spent three weeks (two Burning Man festivals and one Flipside) camping, as well as more than twenty 1-3 day camping trips/events. I trained and taught at the Black Rock Kwoon, and delivered baked goods as performance art. I bought a new laptop and an e-reader, and a solar charger for them both. I undented my truck, and maintained my truck and Ol' Number 3 yearly. I didn't have physical possession of my motorcycle, or that goal would have been completed as well. I tried, and mostly enjoyed, 32 different foods I'd never tasted before. I volunteered, a lot, and helped others achieve personal goals. I almost completed a goal to anonymously help others, but fell short by one person. I maintained my Professional First Aid/CPR certifications, took care of my teeth and body, reviewed my credit reports yearly, completed a CERT course, purged extra stuff, and got all of my photos organized (thanks, Steph!). I didn't complete my goal of 10 concerts, but I did attend 6 great shows. I worked hard on getting all of the different geocaching difficulty/terrain combinations and made good progress, and I almost completed the geocaching Finds by Day of Year, missing it by one day. I acquired a solar cooker, but I haven't used it yet. I made progress on sorting out my hard drive. As before, most of the in-progress goals will transfer to the new list.

I also completed some supplemental goals that don't count on the list, but they are worthy of mention. I've participated in several Flash Mobs, visited (and earned Junior Ranger status!) at many National Parks/National Monuments, completed a month-long geocaching find streak, learned new words and how to solve soduku puzzles, among other experiences. Supplemental goals are often added to the main list as I complete list goals - but sometimes completing them before that happens is a bonus.

The old, referenced list is below. The new list starts today. *smile*
