101 in 1001 Reprisal

As mentioned earlier, I’m redoing 101 in 1001 starting today. This time round I’ve made the tasks less rigid so in the event of total craziness they’re still accomplishable and I’ve also added in the dreaded “fill this in later” tasks as I now understand how useful they can be. Imagine waiting almost 3 years to add a really cool task to your list. Editting for clarity may occur in the near future.

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 work on my part).
