101 IN 1001

I love lists, for day to day or big time goals, so when I heard about 101 in 1001 days I had to do it!

101 in 1001

Start: May 13, 2013
End: February 8, 2016

The Challenge:
Complete 101 preset tasks in a period of 1001 days.
Check out dayzeroproject.com for more ideas.

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.
