The NEXT 101 List (2015-2017)

If you've read my blog much, you know that I have been in the midst of doing a BIG goal of my 101 list...The last list finished up on November 27, 2014, and I did pretty well.  I had 5 weeks to decide if I was going to try it again.  Not only am I going to try it again, I've recruited two of my best friends ('colie-Read her list here and 'Brina see her list here) to do their own 101 list!!  I thought it would be hard to come up with another 101 things to do, but actually I am having to drop things off my list because I have too many!!

Here's the explaination again:

You make a list of 101 things you would like to do.
You aim to get everything ticked off in 1001 days.

It’s that simple.

The rules? Each task must be specific, with clearly defined or measurable results. Tasks must also be realistic — something I believe I can accomplish within 1001 days — and stretching; I can’t add things I already do or which don’t require any effort.

Why 1001 days? “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…because it allows you several seasons to complete the tasks, which is better for organizing and timing some tasks.”

1001 Days =
143 Weeks =
33 Months =
2 3/4 Years

It seems like a reasonable amount of time to get a lot of stuff done! I'm still working on my list for now though, it will be published and ready to start on Thursday January 1, 2015 and hopefully everything will be ticked of by September 28, 2017.

Let's GO! If you are doing a "101 in 1001" and need a cheerleader and a commenter...leave a note and I'll help you. Please cheerlead me too!
