The list!

Welcome to my 101 in 1001! I first saw this idea on a blog I was lurking around on, I was intrigued so I googled it to find out some more and ended up here at Day Zero. As well as on many more blogs of people who are currently doing 101 in 1001. I slowly started my list and figured out a good start and end date and started getting a little bit excited. I L-O-V-E love lists! I love making lists and I love crossing things off of lists. I just really love lists! (I am, however, a horrible procrastinator, and have a ton of unfinished lists!) The idea is really simple, make a list of 101 tasks you would like to complete. The tasks must be specific, easily defined, and measurable. The tasks must be realistic and stretching, something you can do, but something you have to work at. 1001 days is longer than a normal "new year's resolution goal" 2.75 years. You need to be decisive, stay focused, welcome failure (ew), write tasks down, and keep them in sight!
