101 Tasks in 1001 Days

The Mission: To complete 101 predefined tasks in a period of 1001 days.
The Criteria: Tasks must be specific with a result that is either measurable or clearly defined. Tasks must also be realistic and stretching (ie. represent some work and growth on my part)
Why 1001 Days?
We often create lists of goals such as New Year's resolutions which we don’t achieve. One reason is that we procrastinate.
The key to beating procrastination is to set a realistic deadline. 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 that may require multiple like seasons to complete.
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: Accomplishing any goal requires sustained focus from beginning to end.
3. Assessment: Constantly evaluate your progress to motivate you to further progress.

4. Welcome Failure: Failure presents an opportunity to learn.

5. Write down your goals: It clarifies your thinking and reinforces your commitment.

6. Keep your goals in sight: Review them frequently to ensure that they are at the forefront of your thinking.
7. Tasks are steps to completing goals. My tasks are organized by goals.
