The List

The Challenge:
Complete 101 pre-set tasks in a period of 1001 days.
The Criteria: 
Tasks must be specific (ex: no ambiguity in the wording) with a result that is either measurable or clearly defined. Tasks must also be realistic and stretching (ex: represent some amount of work on my part). Blog posts will be written about each task accomplished.
The Clause:
I will complete each task ask written, but I reserve the right to change any tasks (most likely due to monetary concerns). If this happens, I will replace the chosen task with a new one.
