About the 101

Why The 101?
I have been wanting to start a blog for months but worried I didn't have anything to write about. I stumbled upon a friends blog who just began this project. Being a fan of lists myself, I thought this would give me something to write about and it would be fun too!

The Challenge:
Complete 101 preset tasks in a period of 1001 days.

The Criteria:
Tasks must be specific (i.e. no ambiguity in the wording) with a result that is either measurable or clearly defined. Tasks must also be realistic and stretching (i.e. represent some amount of work on your part). I will document, as best I can, the completion of each task.

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 organising and timing some tasks such as overseas trips, study semesters, or outdoor activities.

Love this concept. I have a similar list (albeit very short), for things I want to do before I turn 40. That's longer than a year, but not as long as 1001 days ;)
I'm going to check out your list!
