My Reason for this Blog

I have always wanted to write a blog, but I figured I had nothing interesting enough to write about, until now. I decided to start a 101 in 1001 list.

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 be realistic and stretching (ie. represent some amount of work on your part)

Starting today June 8th, 2009, my list should be completed March 5th, 2012.

I have just completed my 1st item: # 74 Start a Blog documenting this list! woop woop, now I have to move $5.00 into savings. (see # 54 move $5.00 to savings for every check off this list 1/101). ok, ok, here is My List
