101 Things

I learned about this from times_suspended, and joined up over at mission101.

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, September 2, 2006
Ending date: Saturday, May 30, 2009


I'm so excited about this! My brain stalled out a couple times while I was making the list, but I actually had an easy time filling the list. There are so many things I want to do! Hopefully, a list and date like this will help me stay focused.

As with most things, I work better with an encouragement buddy. If this calls to you and you decide you'd like to partner up, please let me know.

I will be using strikes to indicate items completed and italics to indicate items in progress.

books
Ok, I tried to check the page myself but the Oprah site wouldn't load. But recall how I recomended "The Color Purple" (Alice Walker)? I'd wager that it's on her list. So now you have a nice reason to read it.

Another goodie I'm sure is on there is "Beloved" (Toni Morrison) Oprah made a silly movie version of it herself so it's got to be on her book club list. Her movie was floopy but the book is awesome.

Re: books
I read Beloved in high school and totally didn't get it. Maybe I should give it another try now that I'm older, see if it's any better. :P
