Hmm Something New


I was randomly searching the blogworld and I stumbled across something called 101 in 1001, I thought hmm that looks interesting! So I clicked this link and decided to give it a try.


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

The Criteria:
Tasks must be specific (i.e.. no ambiguity in the wording) with a result that is either measurable or clearly defined. Tasks must also be realistic and stretching (i.e.. 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.


So Starting Today my 1001 days is up Wednesday, July 25, 2012

This is a good idea! I wish I could make a list of 101 but I'd probably get distracted and or bored halfway through and leave ha.

You came up with some really good ones though! I might have to do this.. :)

Alice Audrey said...

Quite the list. Everything from finishing it to having a baby. I'll root for you.

Alicia said...

Eventually I really need to do this! I found yours really inspiring! Especially the last one, because I know I would have quite a few!

I arrived on your blog via ICLW, by the way!

great list! good luck on completing it! I like number 101 and it's funny because I am nowhere near the end of my 101 days and I'm already thinking of making a new one in the end.
