The Challenge

I follow a few of my friend's blogs who have 101 challenges and I love the idea. Since I stay home with Caleb, sometimes I am searching for things to complete. I love lists and feel great keeping up with them. I hope it will be a great motivator for myself, and for our family too. I plan to post updates to this blog as I make my way through my 101 challenges in 1001 days.

The Mission:
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 my 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 organizing and timing some tasks such as overseas trips or outdoor activities.

Start Date: Saturday, April 24th 2010
End Date: Saturday, January 19th 2013

(using this handy dandy calculator!)

And this new blog and post complete #97 on my list - start a 101 challenge.

i almost started this list myself.... i think i did start to create a list in a sketchbook but haven't picked all 101 things yet.

i really like some of the things on your list (didn't get to look through all of it yet), in fact i wish to participate in a few with you LOL.... i could teach you photoshop, i love sushi, and if you haven't tried thai yet, i know of a great restaurant! guess we'll have to knock all those out when you complete #6 ;D

good luck with your list, be sure to take photos!
