101 in 1001

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". Yeah, I tried this before ... with mixed results. But I learned from my mistakes, and I think I have a better chance of getting more done.

Start date: January 1, 2018
End date: September 27, 2020
