101 in 1001

For those of you who haven’t heard of the 101 in 1001 Project here are the details as per the Day Zero Project website :

The Challenge

Complete 101 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).

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.

Time Period

Start Date : 2nd July 2012

End Date : 30th March 2015

So How Far Have I Got?
