101 In 1001

The Mission:
Complete 101 preset tasks in a period of 1001 days.

The Criteria:
Tasks must be specific (ie. no ambiguity in the wording) 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.

Those are the simple rules… I had a ton of fun making my list and I cannot wait to print it out and get started. I will keep the list in a place I glance at everyday, therefore it cannot slip my mind. I encourage you to do the same type of list. I’m already empowered and all I’ve done is formulate a few thoughts.

So check out my new page at the top of my blog 101 in 1001 and check back often.

  1. What a great idea! I have made lists and lists of things to do, but rarely do I put a fixed time limit to my lists. Thanks for sharing, and I’m going to start a list. Not sure about the 101 things, but def. like the 101 days! 🙂
