101 in 1001

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 work on my part).

This is my plan for my 101 Things to Accomplish in 1001 Days. This is the second list I've created, the first one ended in 2008 and I've been directionless for just over a year *g*. Much of this list is made up of the first list as there are many targets I didn't hit (I blame V *g*).

Anyway, here are the things I intend to accomplish between Monday January 4, 2010 and Monday October 1, 2012. Many of these things are items that I have been meaning to get to for the past several years. Here's to keeping me honest.
