Complete 101 preset tasks in a period of 1001 days. I never realized how many hours it would take to think of 101 goals. Right now, the list is complete after 6+ hours of thinking, perusing, and soul-searching. I have started more than I thought and I am learning so much in the process. All of my New Years' Resolutions have fallen by the wayside by this time already, but I am still working on these. The extended time line helps as well as the idea of self-improvement.
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 organizing and timing some tasks such as overseas trips or outdoor activities.
