Hmmm: 101 things in 1001 days

I came across this website thanks to my twitter habit – it’s the home of a goal setting challenge called 101 things in 1001.  From their getting started page:

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.

I am a huge fan of long-term goal setting.  Although recent life experiences have required me to shorten my sights for the sake of my family, this may in fact be the challenge I need to get my ‘Inner planner’ on track with my present reality in view.

Are any of you doing this?  I’d love to know, and hear about your experiences.
