My List Of 101 Things In 1001 Days

101 In 1001 Days

So, a few weeks ago I came across the 101 things in 1001 days idea. It is the brainchild of Michael Green over at Day Zero Project. The concept is simple – you accomplish 101 tasks in 1001 days. I have created a million lists of ‘goals’ but never achieved more than a few. Which is where 101 in 1001 days comes in. It is supposed to make goal making and achieving doable.

I fell in love with this idea and set out to make my list. It wasn’t as easy as I thought it would be. I put a lot of thought into this list because I wanted to make sure I really wanted what I was challenging myself to do. Some tasks on this list are for fun – everyone deserves to do something fun once in a while. Some tasks are goals I want to accomplish for this blog or as a reader. But like I said, everything on my list is something I really want to do. I hope I will be able to finish most of them.

I will also try and update the list as much as I can. Whatever I can make a blog post about, I will. However, I do plan on documenting this on Instagram and Twitter. Make sure to check out #FC101Things

    Good luck completing these! I attempted multiple 101 in 1001 Days lists, but I think I didn’t make attainable achievements, because so many were far-fetched.

      Thank you!
      I tried very hard to choose tasks I know I had a chance of accomplishing. I have made a million to-do lists in my life but never really finished them all. I hope I can do this.
