The List

So, this is my go at the 101 things in 1001 days or the Day Zero Project.

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.

Well, well, well

I've kindof put the list on hold. The only things I'm really working on is reading, walking, and losing weight. Work is busy this time year, since Christmas is right around the corner. Maybe it would have been smarter for me to start the first of next year, when things die down. It's just crazy and usually when I get done with work, I'm ready to go to bed! Anyway, I will keep pushing to get my list completed, though! I'll just have to kick my butt into gear the first of the year :P


Day 13

I thought I would give a little update =)
40, 77, and 93 have been completed!

040. Take family out for dinner

This was completed on 10/10/09. Last Wednesday was my birthday, this past Sunday was my parents anniversary, and yesterday was my brothers birthday. To celebrate all together, I took us to Zaxby's. They have pretty much the most amazing chicken, ever, lol.

077. Write & post a 50 word story
I just did this a bit ago, lol. I figured I could get these writing goals done in no time, so it'd be easy to get them out of the way now. You can click here to read it!

093. Adopt a kitten or puppy
This was completed on 10/11/09. Her name is Layla and she's a rat terrier. I'll post pics of her soon!


Day o5`

Oh no, I totally forgot to update "My day, in six words" yesterday!! =( I was exhausted from having to pull 9 hour shifts this weekend, as soon as work was over, I went to bed! Ah, well, I will not forget again!

Also, I decided not to update this everyday unless I completed and/or worked on a goal. That way I don't have a lot of pointless posts, lol.


God Bless


Day o3`

Gr, I didn't really get around to anything list related again! Today is only the third day, but, I feel like I should be doing more? I don't know, maybe it's just me. I love being able to cross things out! This is going to be a long 1001 days :P


God Bless


Day o2`

Didn't get really anything done today, list-related. Work kept me busy! I can tell it's getting closer to Christmas. I work, at home, for a telemarketing service. No, not the annoying kind that calls you at 5:30am, trying to sell you a vacation, lol. I work inbound (I take calls, not make them). I place orders for products you see in infomercials and for insurance information. From now until the first of the year, I'll be having a perament sore throat! lol

Well, I need to get to bed, work in the morning.
(I'm turning into an old lady, lol)

God Bless
