101 in 1001

The Mission: 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 effort on your part.)

I learned about the 1001 Day Project from brainella. I used this online tool that I discovered on {sugarlens} blog to calculate the ending date of January 5, 2013.

Coming up with 101 goals is not as easy as you think!
