101 in 1001

The 101 in 1001 Challenge was originally developed over at the Day Zero Project. The goal is to complete a preset list of 101 tasks in 1001 days. The rules are pretty simple...
  1. List Your Tasks : They should be specific and should be able to be definitively categorized as completed or not. Make a mix of tasks that are realistic, but will require a little bit of extraordinary effort.
  2. Check things off your lists as you go. Try to have all of the items completed by day 1001.
  3. Make item #1001 : "Make a new 101 in 1001 list."
The point is to have a deadline to complete some of the items on your bucket list. It gives you a reasonable amount of time (about 2 3/4 years) to complete these tasks so that you don't feel terribly overwhelmed.

I'm listing my 101 in 1001 here. I'll be starting to attack this list on June 1, 2014. My end date...day 1001...is on February 26, 2017.

As I finish things on the list, I'll mark them out with a strike-through as well as indicate the date completed. Items in progress will be shown in green. I have a pretty good mix of stuff on the list, so I can keep things interesting. Variety is good.

Completed: 19 / 101
