The Mission: Complete 100 tasks between my 27th Birthday and my 30th Birthday

The Criteria: Tasks must be specific (ie. no ambiguity in the wording) with a result either measurable or clearly defined. Tasks should also be realistic and stretching (ie must represent some amount of work on my part).

Why 3 years?: Many people have created lists in the past- frequently simple goals such as New Year's resolutions. The key to beating procrastination is to set a deadline that is realistic. Three years is a better period of time than a year, because it allows several seasons to complete the tasks, which is better for organizing and timing some tasks such as trips or outdoor activities.

The Start Date: 9/25/2011

The End Date: 9/25/2014
