101 Things in 1001 Days

So in light of the recent new years and inspired by the endless conversations of resolutions made, a friend of mine sent me a link to an interesting website. More interesting than the website itself is the concept that it preaches. The title of this blog says it all. This site builds on the idea of "new years resolutions" and takes it a couple steps further by encouraging you to make a list of 101 things that you want to do in your LIFE and it gives you 1001 days (a little over 2 and half years) to do it. It could be anything as small as reading a book every month or learning a new language, or as big as making your first million dollars or getting married. In any case, it puts a deadline on a lot of things that you always say "one day I'll do that" or "I've always wanted to do this" and it forces you to actually make the necessary steps to do it now.

I'm putting my list together right now and although I may not have the full 101 things, starting this Saturday, I'm going to implement it into my life. As I complete each goal, I'll be blogging about them. In fact, now that I think about it, I'll create a new blog that's entirely dedicated to this project (http://clihi101.blogspot.com/). If done right, these next two and a half years should be interesting and life changing . It'd be cool to see everyone coming up with lists of their own, not only because I think it would be fun, but also because I want all my friends to achieve their potential and accomplish their dreams and goals in life. And if this list is a way to get people to take a step towards the unknown, then hey, I'll be right there with you.

The only way you'll grow as a person is if you step out of your comfort zone.
