101 things to do in 1,001 days

I have always loved lists and goals. That is not to say that I have always completed them, but I love them. I first saw this 'project' last year on a blog I read, Heather Drive and I was recently reminded of it on Megan's blog (a fellow nestie).

The project originates from Day Zero Project and the premise is simple enough. Choose 101 things to complete in 1,001 days. The items must be specific with a result that is measurable or clearly defined.

I am putting my list out here in order to be accountable to it and hopefully accomplish all of it!
