Today, I am launching my project for the next 1001 days (or, in long, that's roughly 2 years and 9 months). The project is to list down 101 things you would like to achieve in that time. I got the idea off a friend, and my aim is to inspire someone to do the same (y'know, that and actually complete the list).

The project was an excuse to design a mini-site to keep track of the tasks, and this can be found over on the subdomain 101.samueldking.co.uk. The site is my first real attempt at HTML5 and CSS3, and at the moment does lack browser testing below IE9. Eeek. I know for a fact IE8 and below is gonna freak out at the new elements HTML5 has introduced, and I will combat this as soon as. Anyway... [/geek]

The aim of this mini-project is to basically just experience more things. Coming up with the 101 things was no mean feat and has taken the best part of a month since deciding to take part in the challenge. It's difficult to quantity 101 separate tasks or goals you'd like to achieve in the 1001 days. After all, 1001 days isn't that long. This challenge should certainly not be confused with a bucket list, which, as far as I understand it, most people make when they reach 50-odd.

These are quantifiable, often out-of-the-ordinary, yet achievable goals. The list includes simple material targets that I have set myself, experiences, things I'd like to see or do, and generally things I would like to do and see myself doing in the period of time. The act alone of making a list and having each task in front of me, as tickable target makes it much less likely for the idea to fall out of my head and pass me by.

I hope to blog about the more interesting tasks, so stay tuned and keep an eye on the list to track my progress. Wish me luck!
