101 in 1001

Okay, okay. I'm jumping on the bandwagon. Figured I'd do something positive. :) Oh and Jaye, Jenni, Jamie(wow J's haha), Mya, Stacey, Patty, and Lisa - You can all use me to mark off your goal to inspire someone to make a 101 list, cause you all inspired me. I used all of your lists as examples

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.
