60 of my 125 tasks

The Mission:
Complete 125 tasks in a period of 1125 consecutive days.
The Criteria:
Tasks must be specific -no ambiguity in the wording- with a result that is measurable or clearly defined. Tasks must be realistic and have some amount of work on my part.

Why 1125 Days?
This is my version of a bucket list. I don’t want to wait until I’m going to ‘kick the bucket’ to do things I really want. I’m also not good at resolutions. But, maybe with a realistic timeline (1125 days= 3 years) I will be able to do some of these things.

Start Date: Tuesday, March 17, 2009
End Date: Thursday, March 17, 2011
