Day Zero | 101 in 1001

photography via

I just found out about this really cool project that's going on around in the blog world. The project is called Day Zero and it inspires you to set and achieve your personal goals in life. The challenge is to complete 101 tasks, that you write for yourself, in a period of 1001 days. That's approximately 2.75 years. I've already started a Life Goal List but those tasks tend to be long term things or things in the future.

This project is different because it can be tasks as simple as plucking my eyebrows (which by the way needs to be done, badly). I like this project because it makes you set a deadline and helps you beat procrastination, which is why my Life Goal List has yet to be completed! (Well, that and money!)

Anyway, 1001 days from now, July 16, 2013 (yikes!) I hopefully will have completed every little bit of my list!! Here goes nothing! Will you make your own 101 in 1001 list? Please do! :)
