101 Things in 1001 days

Written By: Gary on March 15, 2006 2 Comments
So far I’ve completed:

  • 03/15/06: Frame all of my college degrees.
  • 03/11/06: Get a new desk for the landing.
  • 03/11/06: Do my taxes for last year.
  • 03/08/06: Post this list on-line.
  • 03/06/06: Figure out a plan for my mortgage.
  • 03/03/06: Get a new carbon monoxide detector.
  • 02/17/06: Do my taxes for the year before last.
  • 01/15/06: Get a new desk chair.
  • 12/08/05: See Anna Nalick in concert.
  • Way back in September 2005 I said I liked the idea of this 101 things in 1001 days.

    As it says on the 101 in 1001 site:

    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.

    So I’ve built a list and I’m crossing them off. I broke them down by categories: Blog, Entertainment, Family, Health, Home, Me, Money, Other, Technology and Vacation (the last category may be overloaded). Of course the list is at http://101in1001.garylapointe.com/ and I’ve got it all geeked out (but the template needs work).


    On the site there is a countdown as to the time left and how many tasks I’ve completed (and what percentage of tasks I’ve completed vs. percentage of time passed).

    Recently completed items are in the left sidebar of this site on many of the pages. Also on days that I post a new entry there and here, it’ll automatically show up under the date. Unfortunately, it was an afterthought so it doesn’t show up on days when I don’t post here, but I’ll figure something out…

    There are RSS 2.0 and Atom feeds if you’re a feed reader…

    These are things I’m doing so some of the posts will be relevant to life so I’m trying to figure out a way to incorporate them more here.

      You are way too ambitious for it to even be remotely healthy. Please come back to our level. Make us feel better about ourselves. You’re raising the bar far too high.
