As if starting law school wasn't enough

I suppose I'm the last one on the Internet to hear about this "101 in 1001" idea--I'm pretty sure I noticed it on a few other law blogs. Bear with me if you've heard this already. I'm going to write about it anyway.

Basically, the challenge is to make a list of 101 specific tasks and then accomplish all of them within the next 1001 days.

Obviously, this was right up my alley. I'm already so into the idea of making lists and setting goals and working to learn or do new things. It wasn't hard for me to come up with a couple dozen things right off the top of my head, and everything just fell into place after that.

I'm not going to share the entire list (unless someone out there actually wants to see it), but I will say that as I wrote it out, it began to look like the training regimen for a sexy international superspy. Check these out:

  1. Learn to hotwire a car
  2. Learn to ride a motorcycle
  3. Practice a martial art for one year
  4. Learn to speak conversational French
  5. Learn to use a handgun at a firing range
  6. Spend at least a week in Japan
  7. Learn to give a professional-quality massage
  8. Jump out of a plane

[update: if you decide to jump on the bandwagon and are having trouble calculating the date 1001 days from now (I did), then here's a handy tool to make it easier. My deadline is Wednesday, September 11, 2007. At least that won't be difficult to remember.]

I did it! (Although I haven't seen it on other law blogs.) My list isn't nearly as international super-spyish as yours.
