101 in 1001

I’m currently participating in a Day Zero Project. I have set myself 101 goals that I plan to accomplish in 1001 days. That’s approximately 2.75 years. Many people like to create lists of goals for themselves and allowing for a few seasons to pass allows for some greater goals to be placed on the list and allows more time to accomplish them!

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).

Start Date: Monday, April 26, 2010

End Date: Monday, January 21, 2013

Haha- you're right! Yours are definitely more practical oriented.

I suppose my 101 list is more fun and silly as I'm doing a lot of 'serious' things in my daily life- especially for my age. I'm 23, fully self-sufficient, live in a foreign country and will continue to do so in many others for the foreseeable future. I'm rather jaded about the work I do (I work in women's rights and development) and so I need a bit of silly to remind me how much fun it can all be! :)

Growing up doesn't have to be a serious activity! x

Wow! That's an impressive and important job, though! I can understand how you'd need some "silly" in your life.

And I trust me, when teaching 12 year olds, growing up is not a serious activity! :)
