This is our fifth time doing this! (Here are 2014, 2015, 2016, and 2017) Some of the items are repeats, some are brand new; some are individual, others are for the whole family. We’ve tried to balance achievability, ambition, and interestingness.
- Every Thing must be completed by 11:59 pm on December 31, 2018.
- They are not required to be completed in any particular order.
- Unless otherwise noted, each Thing requires that both Becky and I be present. Some are for just one of us, some also have the kids involved.
- More than one Thing may be completed in a single day, if circumstances permit.
- We are allowed to modify the list to adjust for life changes during the year, as long as the goal of doing 100 great things is still met.
Current Progress: 100/100
