here goes.... Day Zero/75 in 1001 Project

I sat down this weekend and thought about this list. I really think the idea is great! Putting 101 things you would like to accomplish down on paper makes me accountable to accomplish the items and they are things I truly REALLY want to do in the next 3 years. Here is a little recap of what the Day Zero/75 in 1001 Project is. {yes, the project is really 101 in 1001 but I made a list of 75, therefore cutting it down!

The Mission:
Complete 75 preset tasks/goals/challenges in a period of 1001 days.

The Criteria:
Tasks must be specific (i.e. no ambiguity in the wording) with a result that is either measurable or clearly defined. Tasks must also be realistic and represent "stretching."

Why 1001 Days?
It's all about a realistic deadline. 1001 days (about 2.75 years) allows you several seasons to complete tasks, which is better for organizing and timing things like overseas trips or outdoor activities.

Start Date: January 1, 2010
End Date: December 20, 2013
Goals Complete: 0/75
Goals in Progress: 0/75
