101 IN 1001 DAYS

I have decided to attempt a challenge involving 101 things in 1001 days. I've created my own list of 101 things that I would like to complete in this time, ranging from things relating to my hobbies, to places that we want to go to and explore. I've seen this challenge going around for many years, and although I have written a few lists before, it has never gone beyond this.

The 101 in 1001 days challenge lasts for around 2.75 years so gives you plenty of time to complete the tasks that you set for yourself, whilst also leaving plenty of time to achieve tasks that may take a bit of time. If you want to know more about the challenge, and see what I have picked for my 101 tasks, keep reading!

My 101 in 1001 days starts on:

1st August 2018

My 101 in 1001 days ends on:

28th April 2021


The challenge is all about completing a list of 101 things, set by yourself in 1001 days. The challenges have to be realistic and measurable so you can't be too vague, but as well as being realistic, you should also set some more challenging goals.

1001 days gives you plenty of time to complete the list of goals, and as the time isn't too short, or too long, and is over all the seasons, it gives you a chance to complete tasks that have to be completed within a set season. 1001 days is actually around 2.75 years and gives enough time to reach goals, but isn't too long of a period. Sometimes setting goals over 5 years just gives too much time for procrastination! 


I have split my list into different sections so that it is easier for me to keep track of my goals. When I write a blog post about a goal, I will also link to this below. I will also cross out the goal once it is reached.
