101 in 1001

By | February 18, 2011

Over the years I’ve seen various other bloggers work towards completing 101 tasks in 1001 days. Although, I already have a bucket list, many of the tasks on my bucket list are things I’m sure I’ll never do in my life time. However with this 101 in 1001, I’ve tried to think of tasks/goals that are achievable in this time frame.

    I love that your 1001 is to move the piano. Great list, let me know when you need motivation and I’ll start waiving the pom-poms.
