My 101 in 1001

101 in 1001

I have been talking about a 101 in 1001 for a rather long time. One reason that I wanted to join was because of my 30 by 30 list, and the sad fact that I started too late and never accomplished all of them. Another reason, is the fact that the term "bucket list" makes it sound like I'm wanting to complete things before I die, and one, it sounds morbid, and two, I'm a procrastinator, meaning that I take forever to get shit done. Anyways... 

The Challenge:

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 your part).

Why 1001 Days?
Many people have created lists in the past - frequently simple challenges such as New Year's resolutions or a 'Bucket List'. 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, study semesters, or outdoor activities.
