101 Things to do in 1001 days *UPDATE #2*

25 Jan

Head on over to Torrey Shannon’s page to check out the full rules and regs, if you’d like to participate. 

Here’s the quick and dirty: 

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 organizing and timing some tasks such as overseas trips or outdoor activities.

The Start Date:
1/1/13 (mine officially starts on 1/11/2013)

The End Date:
9/27/15 (or, in my case, 10/7/2015)

Items in red are done!
