101 in 1001 days...

So i've started something new. And today is the day that I started it.

A friend of mine came across this web site, Day Zero: Home of the 101 things to do in 1001 days. She wanted to participate in this, so she wrangled me, and another friend, into doing it with her.

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

So, I've created another blog to keep track of what i'm doing and my list.

101 Things to Do in 1001 Days

If you'd like to keep track of my progress or just see what I'm reading or watching at the moment your more than welcome to come and take a look.
