I’ve decided to embark on the 101 Things in 1,001 Days project.  Information on the project, from http://www.dayzeroproject.com is below.

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.

I’m starting my 1001 Days on December 1st, so I have some time left to finalize my list and start organizing the whole project.  There is a separate page where I’ve listed my 101 Things, but I will also be dividing them up into categories and blogging about my intentions regarding them over the next two weeks to get started on the right foot.
