The 101 List

I began this project on January 1, 2009 and eventually fell off of the wagon. I have since completed some more items, but since they weren’t complete in the 1001 days, I’m forever leaving this list frozen in time 🙂

All posts related to the 101 project are located here:

Ally’s 101 in 1001

 

Here is the original project:

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 your part).
