101 Things in 1001 Days

While I was browsing, I have read a co-blogger’s 101 in 1001 Challenge and found it very interesting. I really have a lot of things on my mind that I wanted to do and thought that maybe it’s time to make these so-called plans a reality. It’s pretty challenging though because you have to set a deadline for it. You only have 1001 days to complete all the tasks on your list.

I find it really fun doing these things. I have already started accomplishing some of the things I have put on my list. It has already affected me because I always consider the items I have written everytime I go out and do something. So far, knowing that I have a set deadline makes me more aware of the tasks I have to accomplish. I am not 100% sure if I can do all these in a span of 2 years and 9 months but I am aiming to at least get it 90% done although it would be way better if I finish everything. There is no material reward once I accomplish everything but the fulfillment of actually doing the things you want to do is already a reward in itself. Sharing it here also helps because I am more conscious of accomplishing these and prove readers that you can if you just set your mind to it.

    Loved the 101st to-do :P
    I’m happy to have inspired someone to make a list and help them realize in a way the things they want to do and put it in motion.

    1001 days is more realistic than your normal to-do list. Goodluck and God bless :)

      I really wanted that to be last on my list. :) Reading your post made me realize that I have things I want to do and I was always saving it for later because I often tell myself I’m too busy. But now, I’m actually seeing that I can do these things in between work. I’m really happy. :)

      I also wish you the best of luck. I really do hope we both accomplish everything we want to do. :)
