The Concept

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

The List

Start date: January 8th, 2010
End date: October 5th, 2012

Goals Achieved: 1
Goals In Progress: 24

mini hiatus
for indefinite time

Classes start tomorrow, and as you know, I'm way behind. From Tuesday on, I have exams. And on the upcoming weeks, I'm going to study a lot. I have the subjects from the three weeks I was sick to catch up, and the new ones we'll have on this semester, and that`s a lot. I really want to get good grades, so I'm saying goodbye for now. I'll get online as soon as possible! I'll miss you guys. All I ask is... don't take me off of your friends' list. I know I've been lacking on the comments department, but RL is getting in the way.

See you when things slow down. <3

Wherever I go, whatever I do, I wonder where I am in my relationship to you.
Don't you guys just hate when boys do this? One second they're all cute, the other they don't even reply to your IMs. I mean... why? When I'm mindset on ignoring him and being cold, he's a total sweetheart. If I show any interest, g'bye. Make up your mind, 'cause I'm not gonna wait forever.

Also, I'd love to shake John Mayer and ask him to stop writing songs about my life. Seriously! I'm listening to his songs and then I get all sad because something he said is just what I'm feeling, or what I'm thinking, and so on. 

I'm cranky and needed to get this out of my chest.

The Progress

Start date: January 8th, 2010
End date: October 5th, 2012

Month: 2

In progress:
Achieved: 1
Failed: 0
On hold: 0
*listed here the ones I worked on this month.

The second month of my Mission 101 has gone by, and it's gone by incredibly fast! As on my last update, I didn't do much, but I'm keeping my list in mind and thinking of new ways of improving it. There's a link for my older posts on mission101 at the bottom of this entry, as well as a link for my list. Feedback is greatly appreciated!

In February I added a few goals:

- Get my toe nails done at leat 30 times (1/30)
- Pluck eyebrows 10 times mininum (0/10)
- Work out everyday for a month (0/30)
- Keep school stuff organized - textbooks, notebooks, papers
- Tidy up closet
- Smile at ten strangers and get them to smile back (1/10)

And completed a goal for the first time:
- Clean bedroom and get rid off anything I didn't use in the past year

LiveJournal actually ate my original list entry, thus I had to redo the list, or at least a big part of it. Anyway, here's my progress!

And that was it! As I said, it wasn't much, but I am keeping my list in mind and doing things slowly.
So far I have 77 goals set and 24 to be decided.
