My List

First, a confession...

I am a blog stalker traveler.

I stalk travel to blogs all the time. People I knew, people I know, people I would like to know, people I have never heard of or met ever and probably never will, no one is safe.

In my defense, its not creepy stalking traveling. Its mostly informative; to fill my curious mind with the things people struggle with, acomplish, and think of every day. I love reading, I love learning new things, and I love learning about people in general. I think its interesting to know how other people live there lives. In other words, people fascinate me...enter the stalking traveling.

The point of this?

Well, throughout my blog stalking traveling, I have been seeing quite a few of these lists. They are long lists. Very long. And after so many times I have become intrigued...and then envious.

I want one.

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.

The countdown, directly above the bloggy area, is my countdown.
1001 days starting September 1.
That means I have until Septemer 1 to finish compiling my list and get it posted for all to see. Probably over there somewhere --->

I have already thought of a few things, but from reading over others' lists, I can already tell that the thinking part of this is going to suck.

Anyone want to join me?
