101 Things: Retired List (2/19/14-11/16/16)

The Mission: Complete 101 preset tasks in a period of 1001 days. This is my third attempt at this project, so this is a new list as of February 19, 2014. It includes some previous goal as well as some new ones. Wish me luck! 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). Due Date: November 16, 2016.
