101 in 1001

I saw this Challenge over at Life & Lemons   and thought I would give it a try! (Thank You Kenzie for the idea!)

The Challenge: Complete 101 preset tasks in a period of 1001 days.
The Criteria: Tasks must be specific with a result that is either measurable or clearly defined. Tasks must also be realistic and stretching.
Why 1001 Days: Many people have created lists in the past - frequently simple challenges such as New Year's resolutions or a 'Bucket List'. The key to beating procrastination is to set a deadline that is realistic. 1001 days is a better period of time than a year, because it allows you several seasons to complete the tasks, which is better for organizing and timing some tasks.
