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.

#27: Another ethical dilemma from Jodi Picoult that drags you in and sucks you under.

Change of Heart Change of Heart by Jodi Picoult

My review

rating: 4 of 5 stars

Another Picoult novel... much in the same of all her others. OK, so I've only read My Sister's Keeper in addition to this one, but I imagine they follow similar themes of legal/medical ethical dilemmas. Not saying that's a bad thing as I'm easily sucked into her stories and mostly her means of story-telling/format. Short chapters told by different characters in the story makes for a very easy and pleasurable read. I was super attached to everyone in Change of Heart and as predicted by me, found myself crying at the end and throughout the story. Definitely recommend.
