Completing my 101in1001 – in a quandary.

In 2017 I signed up for my second 101in1001 challenge. The idea is to set yourself 101 achievable challenges (not as easy as it sounds) and then complete them in 1001 days (about 3 years).

You can log and tick off your challenges at Three years is a great time frame as it gives room for maneuver should life hit you in the face.

Here are the challenges I set myself Sammi’s 101 Challenges

Life can be a rollercoaster can’t it? Nov 2017 seems a life time away now and there have been a fair few obstacles stopping me in my tracks. T First I had to take six months out of my challenge because of family problems, then money was a constraint, then my work increased as did swimming commitments so I had no time, and now… Covid!

Saying that, there are many of my 101 challenges that I have been able to complete purely because we have lacked a freedom of movement and were given more ‘at home’ time because of the Cororavirus restrictions. If I hadn’t been at home all this time I wouldn’t have gone through my LPs or tidied the attic, and many others, you win some you lose some.

Other tasks unfortunately are sadly now impossible to do. It saddens me that when I had the opportunity to go to Edinburgh last summer, I didn’t jump at the chance (task 82). Carpe Diem, we must do what we can when we can.

I am discussing with my good friend whether it is allowed to tag a few weeks onto the 1001 days to make up for the time that we have missed, but that seems a bit of a cheat. Should I just complete this timeframe, happy that I achieved over 60% of the challenges. and make myself a new list.

I literally only have ten days now to complete as MANY of my remaining challenges as I can. Some are virtually done so I make tweak or bend the rules a teeny bit to make them count. Covid must bring some advantages shouldn’t it?
