101 Tasks in 1001 days...

So the last couple of weeks has taught me that life is too short and we shouldn't take things for granted so when I heard about the Day Zero Project I thought I would give it a shot...

Day Zero is a unique challenge that inspires you to set and achieve your personal goals in life.

The Challenge:
Complete 101 preset tasks in a period of 1001 days.

The Criteria:
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.

The website seems to be down at the minute but you will be able to keep up to date with my progress here. I will blog as much as I can about how I am doing and include photos as well!

I will let you know what my tasks are in my next blog...
