101 things in 1001 days

I found this online and thought it sounded like a great idea. My 101 Project will start January 1, 2008. My goals are listed on the right side of my blog -- when I complete a goal, it will be stricken through. Several of them are multi-part goals, so the numbers following the goal indicate the number of tasks completed compared to the total number sought.

For more information on getting started with your own challenge or to read other people's lists, check out http://www.triplux.com/dayzero.




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

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

3. 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.

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

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

I can see you put a lot of thought into your list Tammy! I especially like that you listed to finish 75% of the list. Great goal!

Good luck, but most of all enjoy!

What a great idea! I should think about joining in but I'm not sure I can find time to think of 101 goals! *lol*
