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.

#18: My writing in 2008.

So this year I published 35 articles. My goal was to publish 5-10 articles a month, which looks like I was able to meet! Sadly, none of them were paid articles, but that's still pretty awesome. Looks like I'll have to work more in 2009 to get the paid article part of my list taken care of.

I am going to try and update this more this weekend so what I have really accomplished since the start of my list. I hope it will encourage my sister to update her list as well, after all, this was all her idea!

More updates to come...
