Chronicles of a Baby Catcher

101 in 1001

What’s this all about? I saw this on and thought I’d create my own… Here are the rules:

  • Develop a list of 101 tasks/activities that you will complete in 1001 days (2.75 years).
  • Tasks must be specific (i.e., no ambiguity in the wording), with a result that is either measurable or clearly defined.
  • Tasks must also be realistic and stretching (i.e. represent some amount of work on my part).
  • Start Date: August 23, 2008
  • End Date: May 21, 2011 – I will be 26 years, 8 months, and 10 days old

I have started my list below.  Please note that this is a work in progress and that I’ll be revisiting this post to complete my list.  AND, as I start completing each task, I will cross them off.

Your list is excellent! I congratulate you on your goals. I actually started making a list of goals to achieve each year in my 23rd year of life. I make about 16 goals each year and most times achieve a 75% success rate.

No one told me about this but I learned about it through much prayer and inspiration from God. I wish I had learned it sooner but was glad that I learned it then rather than in my 60’s. =)

The four areas I use are Spiritual, Academic, Business and Personal. I try to put four goals in each. I have a worksheet I developed so if you’d like to get it, just shoot me an email.

Lots of love and peace (to you and the universe.)
