101 in 1001 days

I have lost count of the times that I have started one of these challenges and then either forgotten about it or just restarted it.  No more procrastination, I will be checking in on this list once a week.  I love lists and checking things off and this is an ultimate one, no more failure.

Start: Monday 2nd January 2017
End: Monday 30th September 2019

The Mission

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 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 organising and timing some tasks such as overseas trips or outdoor activities.

Some common goal setting tips:

Be decisive. Know exactly what you want, why you want it, and how you plan to achieve it.

Stay focused. Any goal requires sustained focus from beginning to end. Constantly evaluate your progress.

Welcome failure. Frequently, very little is learned from a venture that did not experience failure in some form. Failure presents the opportunity to learn and makes the success more worthy.

Write down your goals. It clarifies your thinking and reinforces your commitment.

Keep your goals in sight. Review them frequently, and ensure that they are always at the forefront of your thinking.
