101 things in 1,001 days

Well, I decided that this sounded like the most productive type of meme/blogging that I could possibly do, so why not do it?


Unfortunately, at this point I'm only a bit past halfway in thinking of 101 things to do. I've got a lot of short term stuff, and a couple long term things, but not much in the middle. I'll probably break it out into categories once I have 101 things, but counting is easier with them all mangled together at the moment. (I've got them in a numbered list, of course).

Any suggestions? I already perused some random people's 101 things blogs to look for ideas.

That idea's pretty cool.

re: walking shoes. I was going to mention that after the weekend. Since your feet hurt and mine didn't at all, I thought of that after you left. Especially since you walk to work now, some nice walking or cross-trainer sneakers would be well worth it for ya. And your feet might not hurt as much. :)

Well, the shoes I have are awesome, but they are almost 3 years old, I think. I wonder if I could find the same pair online some place....

Otherwise, I just remembered I have 2 pairs of hand-me-down sneakers from my brother at my parent's house. I should bring them home.

Exactly what I'm not saying. lol. Methinks you should find a new *really good* pair. :-p

I just looked up my current pair of shoes... around $5 new.. insane since I got mine for $7. :-P I think my color is discontinued, though.

No offense but if they're $5 they can't be too awesome. As far as actual foot support and allowing you to do even a mile or so comfortably and without hurting. :-\

Oops! Forgot a 0 - should be $50. They were great and I got them for walking all over Hawai'i and my feet never hurt! They are just old and worn out now.

Ooh, okay! I was wondering about that. I've seen flip-flops for more than $5.

Are you on 43 Things too by any chance?
Sep. 14th, 2007 01:37 pm (UTC)
Nope, but I've checked out the site before... it's a bit too, um, "taggy"(?) for me and a little too social-network-y.
Sep. 14th, 2007 05:14 pm (UTC)
Taggy? Yeh it is networky, but the only person I know on there is Amy. ::shrug::

How do you number indent on the blog site btw?

I just used a numbered list. In between the individual items, I used h2-tags for the headings. Worked out nicely, methinks.
Sep. 14th, 2007 05:31 pm (UTC)
I still get regular bullets using <|ol|> no clue why.
Yeh, yours looks ifne.
Sep. 14th, 2007 05:55 pm (UTC)
you should be using li tags within the ol tags.
Sep. 14th, 2007 06:01 pm (UTC)
Yep! Still no workie. :(
Sep. 14th, 2007 06:02 pm (UTC)
What's weird is in the preview window it looks right, but on the page it just bullets it.
Sep. 14th, 2007 06:11 pm (UTC)
Okay, that was dumb. It was the template I was using!
Sep. 14th, 2007 06:54 pm (UTC)
Are they all supposed to be obtainable? :-p

Depends on how you interpret the rules:

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.

Some common goal setting tips:
1. Be decisive. Know exactly what you want, why you want it, and how you plan to achieve it.

2. Stay Focussed. Any goal requires sustained focus from beginning to end. Constantly evaluate your progress.

3. Welcome Failure. Frequently, very little is learned from a venture that did not experience failure in some form. Failure presents the opportunity to learn and makes the success more worthy.

4. Write down your goals. It clarifies your thinking and reinforces your commitment.

5. Keep your goals in sight. Review them frequently, and ensure that they are always at the forefront of your thinking.

Yeah sounds like it is. Blah. I was going to do it, but I know I'll never get anything done anyway.:-p
