Not to worry you or anything, but I thought I’d
have a breakdown break down the lovely tasks I’ve set myself, into easily manageable numbers and see exactly where I’m at.
The challenge states 101 tasks in 1001 days, and I have 973 days remaining.
I have so far completed 1 task.
I still have to find 25 tasks. But, of the 76 tasks I’ve already set myself, 17 are not singular events.
So, actually, I still need to:
- Blog 291 times (after this)
- Maintain the list 31 times
- Go to the gym 99 times
- Attend 3 classes at the gym
- Go swimming 28 times
- Try 26 new recipes
- Buy 5 new cookery books
- Find 5 delicious wines
- Introduce 3 people to sushi
- Eat at 10 new restaurants
- Read 3 German novels
- Watch 94 films
- Date my hubby 32 times
- Do 4 car boots sales with the children
- Date 2 of my daughters 12 times (so 24)
- Home therapy with my son 52 times
This adds up to 710 events.
In the remaining 973 days.
OK. No. Wait. Because that only covers 17 of the tasks.
There are also 59 singular tasks.
And then, as I said before, 25 tasks are still to be found.
If I average out those 710 events through the 17 tasks I can round that up to 42 events per task.
Furthermore, if 17 of the 101 tasks are more than singular events, (which equates to around every 6th task), through the law of averages, I would expect that approximately 4 of the remaining 25 tasks to be found, would also be multi-eventers.
And if each of these 4 tasks then, took the previous average of 42 then I would expect to add another 168 events to the challenge.
Pant. Pant. Pant. BREATHE.
Where were we?
Erm… yes, 710 events plus another 168. So 878 events.
No. Sorry… Incorrect.
I have not added on the already selected 59 singular tasks previously mentioned.
878 + 59 = 937
But, oh… Silly me. I still have to allow that 21 of the 25 remaining tasks would also, by the law of averages, be singular challenges.
So: 937 + 21 = 958 😯
Therefore, I’m faced with 958 events to be completed in 973 days.
If you are considering joining our challenge, please don’t let this deter you, after all I still have 15 whole days left (if I succeed in 1 event per day) to: find another 33 Facebook fans, achieve another 13 flags on flag counter and another 56 countries, notch up another 42,875 hits on my stats counter and to donate 77,410 grains of rice.
The really good news is: I never did like cleaning. 😀
