101 in 1001

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

This really made me laugh at some of these! Like not buying any clothes for a month. I can't wait until you get that one finished. Others I know you'll be successful at. Yeah you are finally going to save for retirement!

When do we get to go shopping? Good luck with accomplishing all this. I want to be your tour guide for all of the trips in the next 3 years.

I am 11 days into a month of not shopping. But I may crack this week
