Do

I credit Run, Eat, Date, Sleep with introducing me to this concept and DayZero for coming up with the concept in the first place!

The Challenge: 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 your part).

I’ll keep adding to this list as I come up with new goals!
