101 in 1001

The Goal: Complete 101 preset tasks in a period of 1001 days.

The Criteria: Tasks must be specific (ie. no ambiguity in the wording) with a result that is either measurable or clearly defined. Tasks must also be realistic and stretching (ie. represent some amount of work on my part).

Why 1001 Days? I am bored with the "New Years Resolutions" that so many of us adopt for a few months and give up... I feel like this list is full of good life goals for me, some small and some large... But I also like that none of them HAVE to be done this year, if I slip I can keep trying... Plus it holds me accountable in a great way!
