101 Challenges in 1001 Days | Sustainable Beginnings

August 03, 2015

I’m sure many have heard of this challenge; it’s quite popular. This is what Day Zero has to say about the 1001 day challenge:

Day Zero started out with the catchy challenge of completing 101 things in 1001 days. This has been enormously popular with tens of thousands of people getting involved and sharing their lists. We now offer many more types of challenges, but here are the original guidelines for the challenge:

The Challenge: 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 55bfd41f1f759fce2d9514fb-450x480also be realistic and stretching (ie. represent some amount of work on your part).

Why 1001 Days?Many people have created lists in the past – frequently simple challenges such as New Year’s resolutions or a ‘Bucket List’. 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, study semesters, or outdoor activities.

Day Zero is a great place where I have started to track my own goals, I definitely suggest checking it out.

If you do you may also want to take a look at my own goal list. Though I haven’t created 101 goals for the list yet I’m hoping to get a good start to the list. Perhaps you would like to try the list with me? If you do be sure to let me know and share your progress!
