The concept of Mission 101 comes from the Michael Greene, who created Day Zero Project, where the challenge is to, "Complete 101 preset tasks in a period of 1001 days."
WHAT IS THIS ALL ABOUT? The point is to take 101 specific, predetermined goals and accomplish each of them over a 1,001 day period. Your goals can be as personal or generic as you'd like them to be; after all, they're your goals that you will be accomplishing, no one else.
WHY 1,001 DAYS? 1,001 days is roughly 2.75 years, which is better than a single year in terms of being able to accomplish a broader range of goals, giving you the challenge of assigning yourself both short- and long-term goals.
WHO CAN PARTICIPATE? Anyone with a list of goals and some determination! This community was created for those who started their 101 on January 1, 2010, who would like to do so in a community setting with some support and encouragement. Membership is now closed, but those looking to start their 101 now can join mission101 for support and encouragement.
COMMUNITY GUIDELINES: - Use lj-cuts when appropriate (for super long lists or large pictures, etc). Instructions on how to do that can be found here. - Tag entries as needed; it makes your posts easier to find in the future if you want to track your progress. A list of tags can be found here. - Update on your progress periodically! It's fun to see what everyone is accomplishing, and an excellent way to track your own progress as time passes.
COMMUNITY CONDUCT: The basic let's-all-play-nicely-together rules are pretty simple: Be respectful of other people in your comments and posts. Constructive criticism is acceptable (if the person wants it, and keep in mind - they might not!), but being mean on purpose is not. LiveJournal is a pretty eclectic place, and one person's goal might not be right for you, but that doesn't mean it isn't perfect for them. Respect that. This is a place for encouragement and support.
