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).
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 organizing and timing some tasks such as overseas trips, study semesters, or outdoor activities.”
So my last 101 task list was only a quarter complete by the end date. I’m still not going to call it a failure because, during that time, I moved to Atlanta, visited Boston, Asheville, and Italy, got a Macbook, a gun, joined a gym, now I work at a gym, became a morning person, started really attending Passion City Church, hosted Harry Potter Movie nights and a potluck brunch, and moved again, closer to downtown.
