101 Things in 1001 Days - V.2

I am and have always been a list maker.

So when in October of 2008, I learned about the idea of creating a list like this, I got excited. And I set to work on creating a list of my own right then and there. You can find that list here, and although I didn't complete everything on the list, I'm THRILLED at all of the things I did accomplish. I learned that 2 and a half years is enough time for my interests to change, and there were some things on that list that I just didn't care to do anymore. And that's totally okay! Then, of course, there were things that I still wanted to do, but just never got around to. So they are on my new list.

If you're interested in this idea, you can find more information on a website called Day Zero. Join me!

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

The Criteria: Tasks must be specific with a result that is either measurable, or clearly defined. Tasks must also be realistic and stretching (ie. represent some amount of stretching on your part.)

Starting Date: July 28, 2011
Completion Date: April 24, 2014
