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.

#41: Tip #1 to avoid library late fees: renew your books.

Yes, duh. It's that simple. So any way, Nathan and I went to the library a week or so again and picked out loads of books, some cds and one tv dvd collection (Andy Griffith for Nathan). We got lots of good stuff and I'm always pretty impressed with the cd's that the libraries have. I found a neat instrumental collection of Burt Bacharach songs that I've been using for my radio show. Now to get to those books...
