1001 Items to be Completed in 1001 Days

My 101 Items to be Completed in 1001 Days

Start Date: February 1st January 2017


Ending date: December 2018
(last date to complete all tasks)











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




The Criteria: Tasks must be specific (no ambiguity in the wording) with a result that is either measurable or clearly defined. Tasks must also be realistic and stretching (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. Need help figuring out your ending date?

The Reward: Personal satisfaction of a job well done...and lots of things accomplished you really needed or wanted to do!
