101 Things in 1,001 days

I have come across this project on a few blogs and I thought, I could do that! Then about 15 minutes into making my list I realized how hard this was going to be. Not just making the list, but executing everything on my list! Here goes nothing!

The Mission: Complete 101 preset tasks in a period of 1001 days.
The Criteria: Tasks must be specific (i.e. no ambiguity in the wording) with a result that is either measurable or clearly defined. Tasks must also be realistic and stretching (i.e. represent some amount of work on your part).

Not familiar with this project? Check out this website.
