Goals and To-Dos - best tools, resources?

I'm looking for the best tool to maintain a list of long-term goals and a resource for generating short-term ones.

I have two desires right now:
#1 - to create a list of year/long-term/life goals
#2 - to have a series of to-dos/calendar events that remind me to take care of certain necessary tasks
Accomplishing #2 will help with certain items found in #1, so I figured these questions work together. A little more explanation:
#1 - I've looked at 43 Things, thought about just making a list on my own computer, etc. I think I want the public nature of a web app type thing to put my "life list" in vs just having it for me to see. I wish 43 Things had a private option for a couple items. I've checked out the recently launched Go Mighty and I like the idea but the interface is a bit clunky which is turning me off a little. Do any of you maintain a life/goal list online and what are your favorite options?
#2 - So, some of the life list goals are "be more organized" and whatnot. I'd like to find links/examples of calendars that have stuff like lists of things to do each month throughout the year. Stuff like "clean your fridge vent in June" "clean gutters in September" and the like, but also for car maintenance and stuff that I might not even be thinking of. I feel like Martha Stewart used to have something like this on her site, but it was like HER list of stuff to do, so it involved organizing her chicken coops in April. Not something I personally need to do, but the concept was there.
I don't necessarily need a super-mega list of everything in one place as I'm planning on entering it all into a dedicated calendar, but having a few good resources would be helpful. Thanks all!
