101 Things in 1001 Days

The following list is inspired by several that I have seen on the web these past few days. For more info, you can look at Day Zero.

Jendeis' 101 in 1001 Project

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 my part).
