101 in 1001

completing one-hundred one things in one-thousand one days

There are a ton of things that I want to accomplish in my life, and what better time than to do it now! This list will help me keep track of the most important (and lofty) goals that I have for myself.

Some of them may seem pretty far fetched, but I think that they can be done… they will be done…

Why 1001 Days?
Many people have created lists in the past – simple challenges such as New Year’s resolutions or a ‘Bucket List’. 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 just one year.
