101 in 1001

UPDATED:  3/29/17

Here are the rules:
Each task must be specific, with clearly defined or measurable results.
Tasks must also be realistic — something I believe I can accomplish within 1001 days — and stretching; I can’t add things I already do or which don’t require any effort.

Why 1001 days?
“The key to beating procrastination is to set a deadline that is realistic. 1001 Days is a better period of time…because it allows you several seasons to complete the tasks, which is better for organizing and timing some tasks.”

1001 Days =143 Weeks =33 Months =2 3/4 Years

Go letterboxing. Next time you're in town, we should go do this. We have the stamps, log books, and even trail names. :)

Well, okay, that's ambitious and I'm impressed. But what do the letters mean?

Sea glass? You have sea glass you want to cull?
