101 in 1001

 
 
Well here it is – my new 101 in 1001 list. I’m eager to start this challenge again, and see where the next few years take me. Some goals are ones I didn’t complete in the last round, and there are lots of new ones as well. I’m hoping I can accomplish everything this time! 
 
Here’s a little bit about the challenge:
 

The Challenge:
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 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.
