101 things in 1001 days

The Challenge:
Complete 101 preset tasks in a period of 1001 days.

Why 1001 Days?
Many people have created lists in the past - frequently simple challenges such as New Year's resolutions or a 'Bucket List'. 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, study semesters, or outdoor activities.

So I have set 101 tasks to complete in 1001 days. Some will be easy for me such as:

1. See a movie in 3D
18. Watch the sun set
52. Take dance classes

Others will be a bit more challenging:

40. Lose 10 Kgs
81. Do not log into facebook for at least 2 days per week
99. Bake a dessert once per month

And then others will really stretch me:

31. Join the SES
34. Do the 10 km walk in the Gold Coast marathon
36. Put all my photos in a photo albums

And then those that I really wonder what I am doing!!

62. Climb Mt Warning!
69. Eat 3 pieces of fruit each week day!
77. 2 AFD's (alcohol free days) each week!

Anyway I will update on my progess weekly - I'm sure I'll learn alot about myself and those around me!!

Task 89 - Watch 50 of the top 100 films from www.films101.com this is in progress -

first film I watched was Gone with the Wind (borrowed the film from the library and I have a few more on hold). First time I watch this movie - long but enjoyable!

Betty Eliza Clarke 22/2/1924 - 07/01/2010

Nan I love you and will miss you more than words can say

It has been a tumultuous start to our year with the loss of my beloved Grandmother - Betty Eliza Clarke. But she would expect us all to remember her with love and pride and get on with our lives. Her funeral was nice and it did bring family from wide and far, which did give me the opportunity to take a few photos - and my Nan knew how much I loved to take photos!!
