101 in 1001

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 you would like to do. Here is a list of the things that I would like to do, it is a condensed version of the original 101 in 1001. There are many other things that I would like to do in life but some I know are not realist in this time frame. I am going to try my best to complete all of these. Maybe this will motivate me to make some of the things that I want to do a reality. I will let yall know along the way what I have done. Thanks Marcie for the idea.
