101 Cosas Para Hacer En 1001 Días

Navegando por Internet me encontré con esta interesante iniciativa, que consiste en proponerse la meta de hacer 101 cosas que queramos llevar a cabo en un período de 1001 días.

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

The Criteria:
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 my part).

Why 1001 Days?
Many people have created lists in the past - frequently simple goals such as New Year's resolutions. 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 or outdoor activities.

Some common goal setting tips:
1. Be decisive. Know exactly what you want, why you want it, and how you plan to achieve it.

2. Stay Focussed. Any goal requires sustained focus from beginning to end. Constantly evaluate your progress.

3. Welcome Failure. Frequently, very little is learned from a venture that did not experience failure in some form. Failure presents the opportunity to learn and makes the success more worthy.

4. Write down your goals. It clarifies your thinking and reinforces your commitment.

5. Keep your goals in sight. Review them frequently, and ensure that they are always at the forefront of your thinking.

Creo que mi primera meta será precisamente hacer la lista, pondré manos a la obra y la publicaré a quí mismo en este blog, junto con los resultados que vaya obteniendo, las metas que vaya cumpliendo y así.

Creo que el principal atractivo de esta actividad es que con semejante cantidad de cosas por hacer, 101, uno puede permitirse no solo grandes metas, sino incluir también metas sencillas.

Estén al tanto, y participen ustedes mismos, si quieren.
