The Day Zero Project – 101 Things in 1001 Days

I am officially starting the 101 in 1001 project – aka 101 tasks in 1001 days. I first discovered the project on @kapachino‘s blog and I’m really excited. For more on the project, check out dayzeroproject.com.

The Mission: 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).

Timeline: October 1, 2009 – June 28, 2012

I will donate $5 to charity for each thing I don’t do. I think the charity will be Feral Friends (the group I got Victoria from).
