101 Things in 1001 Days

Friday, 3 November 06


I’ve been putting this off for 10 months now. On New Year’s day I drew up a list of 101 things I wanted to do in 1001 days. I got the idea from Triplux, the website/blog of photographer Michael Green. The objective is simple: to complete 101 preset tasks in 1001 days. His 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 your part).”

I’ve accomplished a handful of my assignments since then, but I haven’t gotten around to doing #48 till tonight: “Publish this list on the web.” So here it is. Some are really silly while others give me the willies just by thinking about doing them. Oh, they are mostly the ones that I left blank here. You see, I’ve decided not to post my extremely private and personal goals. I can be quite superstitious sometimes, so prefer to keep them to myself for now. Don’t want to jinx them, ok? :)
