wolffe: (hello there!)
Yep, I'm gonna do this again. I also discovered the dayzero website has a social list tracker thing now. I'm going to duplicate my list there but I always forget to update those things so this will be my main list. I'll have to add to it as I go along because I don't have 101 yet. I actually ended up with 102, so I'm gonna call one of them a bonus at the end of the time period.

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).
