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.

Day Zero.

I know I'm crazy for starting another list and another blog, but after seeing my sister's list it inspired me to do the same. I will try to update this often (as well as keep of with my many other blogs), and I will also attempt to do so with photos. Wish me luck!

If anyone is interested, the website for the "official" 101 in 1001 days project is here!

okay. now our job is to keep eachother motivated and to not let the other slack on their lists.

maybe we should have a bet? who can fisish/complete more tasks each year? or something...
