101 in 1001

101 in 1001: My List of Things to Do

The Challenge: Complete 101 preset tasks/goals in a period of 1001 days.

The Criteria: Tasks must be specific, with a result that is either measurable or clearly defined. Tasks must also be realistic and stretching (ie. represent some amount of work on my part).

Why 1001 Days? Many people have created lists in the past — frequently simple goals such as New Year’s resolutions. The key to beating procrastination is to set a deadline that is realistic. 1001 Days (about 2.75 years) is a better period of time than a year, because it allows you several seasons to complete the tasks, which is better for organizing and timing some tasks such as overseas trips or outdoor activities.

I will update the blog when I complete an item on the list, hopefully with photos to prove it. By making my list public, I am keeping myself accountable to actually DO the tasks! I encourage you to make your own lists and join the challenge with me!
