101 in 1001

The mission: Complete 101 preset tasks in a period of 1001 days.

The criteria: The tasks must be specific (no ambiguity in the wording) with a result that is either measurable or clearly defined. 
Tasks must also be realistic and stretching (represent some amount of effort on your part).

Start Date: September 22, 2016 
End Date: June 2020
