101 Tasks in 1001 Days

The idea: make a list of 101 tasks, both large and small, that you would like to achieve over the next 1001 days. Why 1001 days? Because that's long enough to complete larger projects, but not so long that it's "someday". These aren't "bucket list" items, mind you -- each of these tasks is SMART -- specific, measurable, attainable, realistic, and timely.

Start date: September 12, 2014
End date: May 29, 2017
