    One thing to do on my list would be to make my own crunchy cookie coffee mug like on @Lark's avatar. Mine would be like an extra crunchy, spicy ginger snap. Coat inside with 99% cacao dark chocolate.
    I bet that's pretty difficult.

    If happiness is overrated then what would be the point in doing any of the 1000 things?
    (for me, my happiness most often depends on overall fulfillment)

    It may depend on how you define happiness.

    Mostly it's coupled with things one might define as a passion, or as deeply valuable/meaningful, as you put it- but that in of itself will always be subjective. So even the most minute achievements, like making some ultimate confectionery coffee vessel, may result in immediate happiness- but can also play a part in a broader sense of fulfillment in one's life- i.e. learning/being able to relish the little things, moments, etc. If that makes sense.

    Finding a recipe for that damn mug is proving more difficult than I'd thought.
    I should.. run to the store.. & pick up some cookies.. for . . . motivation.
    Yes. Motivation.

    It is pretty hard to stay motivated to do anything worthwhile in a joyless existence.

    Hmm, that much I agree with.

    It depends on how general or specific the items on your list are. If I were to list really broad goals like "travel alot", "read great literature", etc. I will only be able to come up with a small amount of items. If I start listing specific places I want to go, specific books I want to read, etc. then 1000 doesn't seem like so many. I have over 600 books on my to read list alone.

    Is it legal to say...

    ...
    102) Visit Fiji
    103) Visit Egypt
    104) Visit Rome
    ... and stuff like that?

    That will fill up the list quite quickly. Also, if it doesn't have to be realistic, I have an endless list of dream charity programs that I want to set up

    I have less than 10 things I really want to do, but I can imagining wanting to do a hundred thousand other unimportant things...
