Inspired by my dearest Jake, and this website, the list I've developed and posted to the left is my attempt at the Day Zero Project, which is, according to the site, a unique meme that challenges and inspires you to set and complete realistic goals in life.
Complete 101 preset tasks in a period of 1001 days.
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 stretching (i.e. represent some amount of effort on your part).
Why 1001 Days?
Many people have created lists in the past - frequently simple goals such as New Year's resolutions. 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 organizing and timing some tasks such as overseas trips or outdoor activities.
I am going to begin my 1001 day countdown the same day as Jake, which will be July 1st, 2009, with the end date being March 28, 2012. My list still needs a little work, but I'll have it finalized by then!
