I’ve decided to do the Day Zero project. I’ve actually been planning on it for ages but it’s only now I’ve finally organised myself enough to write my list. I was inspired by my dear friend Carole, who just finished hers and managed to complete everything – how amazing is that?
Complete 101 preset tasks in a period of 1001 days.
Tasks must be specific (ie. no ambiguity in the wording) with a result that is either measurable or clearly defined. Tasks must also be realistic and stretching (ie. represent some amount of work on your part).
Why 1001 Days?
Many people have created lists in the past – frequently simple challenges such as New Year’s resolutions or a ‘Bucket List’. The key to beating procrastination is to set a deadline that is realistic. 1001 Days (about 2.75 years) is a better period of time than a year, because it allows you several seasons to complete the tasks, which is better for organising and timing some tasks such as overseas trips, study semesters, or outdoor activities.
I’ve been working on my list for the last week or so and I’m ready to get going! I haven’t actually got a full list of 101 things, I’m only on 76 at the moment, but I’ve decided to add the rest as I think of them, otherwise I’ll just end up with some rubbishy things I added to try and bulk it out. That’s fair, right?
So anyway, without further waffle, here is my list of goals I’m hoping to achieve in the next 1001 days:
