So this is take 2. I decided to “retire” my first list because I felt like a lot of the goals were not really realistic considering where I am in my life right now. And it felt really strange to have goals involving K and not J. Now that I’ve learned a few things about what works and what doesn’t, hopefully this list of goals is a little more attainable. Wish me luck!
Complete 101 preset tasks in a period of 1001 days.
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 organising and timing some tasks such as overseas trips, study semesters, or outdoor activities.
