101 Things in 1001 Days
Day Zero is Thursday, January 1, 2009

1001 days/143 weeks/33 months
From the website:

The Mission:
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 my part). [I did my best]
