In Just 1001 Days

121 things in 1001 days
The Mission : Complete 121 preset tasks in a period of 1001 days. Why? Because. I NEVER finish anything, except my plate. I want to live life not just functionDay dreaming

The Criteria : Tasks must be specific (i.e. no ambiguity in the wording) with a result that is either measurable or clearly defined. Tasks must also be realistic and stretching (i.e. represent some amount of work on my part). Eye-rolling

Why 1001 Days? They say the key to beating procrastination is to set a deadline that is realistic. 1001 Days ( 2.75 yearsish) is a more reasonable period of time than a year. It allows for several seasons to complete the tasks, which helps with organizing and timing. Promoting success? Wish me luck!
