101 in 1001

While browsing through some amazing blogs I came across, “and I Don’t like Onions“. Fabulous, you should click that pretty pretty link and go check her out. While reading through her posts I came across 101 in 1001, wha-what? I’d never heard of such a thing, yes I may have in fact been living under a rock, but never the less… awesome. I just had to take part. How exciting and what a fantastic way to kick start getting out there and rocking this life.

Here’s how it works…

101 in 1001



Mission if you choose to accept it:
Complete all 101 predetermined items in 1001 days. You can do it, focus, and have a great time

The Criteria:
Items/tasks have to be specific, no vague goal setting here folks. The results of each goal/item/task must be  either measurable or clearly defined. Tasks must also be realistic and cause you to stretch (i.e. clean the kitchen isn’t exactly going to qualify but retiling the kitchen backsplash totally would).

The Start Date: 12/14/13

The End Date: 9/10/16  (Here’s a great link to help you figure this out)
