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

Great list:) Your end date will be December 3rd, 2012:) Mine ends December 2nd, 2012:)

Oh and I got your question about putting this in your sidebar and in wordpress we can do pages and posts - rather then just posts. In blogger you can only do posts. But I think if you go into the layout area you can add a link gadget to the sidebar and then link to the post where you have your list.
