101 Things to do in 1001 Days

I’ve been thinking about doing this for a while.

It’s a list of 101 Things to do in 1001 Days.  I’ve always been impressed with how Elizabeth has going.

As defined by the website:

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).

1. Be decisive. Know exactly what you want, why you want it, and how you plan to achieve it.

2. Stay Focussed. Any goal requires sustained focus from beginning to end. Constantly evaluate your progress.

3. Welcome Failure. Frequently, very little is learned from a venture that did not experience failure in some form. Failure presents the opportunity to learn and makes the success more worthy.

4. Write down your goals. It clarifies your thinking and reinforces your commitment.

5. Keep your goals in sight. Review them frequently, and ensure that they are always at the forefront of your thinking.

I reckon it’s a good thing for me to do as I have a habit of letting things slide, due to my inherently lazy nature. I always say I am going to get around to things. Sometimes I do. Sometimes I don’t.

I think a list is a good thing (as LaLa is always trying to encourage me to do), and this one gives you like almost 3 years to get it done!

Maybe I can convince LaLa to do it with me…

The first thing is, I’d have to pick 101 things. I don’t know how I would do that. It seems very hard. But I guess I could start with cleaning out the garage, painting the house, putting up a pergola and landscaping the yard.

There’s also travelling to Europe, going bungee jumping, donating blood and driving the Great Ocean Road.

There are so many things that I want to do, and why not start to think about them?
