101 Goals in a Year: What Would it Mean For Your Startup?

Could you complete 101 goals in a year? That’s a simple yet powerful question that a new project is trying to answer. With proper tools, community support and engagement, can people meet a goal about every three days for a year? Think about that, having a list of 101 clear, manageable goals. How would that change the behavior of you and your friends?

The project, 101in365, is headed up by Jenn Vargas and just logged its 6,000th goal completed by a community member today.

Andrew Hyde is a startup enthusiast out of Boulder, Colorado. He has founded five companies, including a freelancer marketplace and Startup Weekend.

As Web behavior simultaneously becomes more open and competition-based, projects like this seem to have a real chance to take off. A person’s inspirations are a very telling tale of their actual behavior. And goals, especially with relation to progress, seem to be a very honest expression of who a person really is.

Projects like 43 Things have been wildly successful in the past, and this is very similar, but just different enough with its time limitations and progress reports to be interesting.

I knew it would be a challenge to come up with, but I quickly found out it is really hard to have that many goals. I’m now at just over 50 and it has been exhausting. A year is a long time and 101 is a lot of goals.

It’s a simple question that is very hard to answer: What would your 101 goals be? Can simplicity in a startup work to a project’s advantage or does that cause the message to be non-compelling?
