101 in 1001 Revised

I started this list many months ago and then just stopped trying to cross things off. Then with the change of job a few items on my list are no longer relevant. So here is my revised list.  Finish date Jan 26, 2015

101 in 1001

While reading blogs the other day I discovered Cows, Corn, & Country Girls and her 101 in 1001 challenge. I am all for a challenge. I also need some goals to point me in the direction. I want to go in. Everyone who knows me knows I adore list making. So this challenge was right up my ally.

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).
