101 Things in 1001 Days

So I love lists and I love challenges so what better than to combine the two and have some fun over the next 1001 days. Any help, input and advice will be very gratefully received, anyhow here are the basics of the challenge – 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. they represent some amount of work on my part to accomplish. I’ll be updating the list as I go along; you’ll notice there are a few blanks at the end, just because I know I’ll think of something that I really want to achieve but will have missed out.
