Do you guys know the Day Zero Project? I'd imagine its a pretty popular website around this time of year as people look to make goals for the coming year. I think they have new challenges and ideas, but when I first came across it, it was the axis of the "101 in 1001"- lists of 101 goals to achieve in 1001 days.
Why the 101 in 1001? In their own words-
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 organizing and timing some tasks such as overseas trips, study semesters, or outdoor activities.
As I do best when there is some structure, I like the idea of many small goals rather than one BIG goal- it gives me a path to success. So for this New Year's Day resolution making, I have decided to take on the 101 in 1001.
I've decided the better organize my list, I will break it down into 5 categories of 20 goals, with my extra 1 being the overriding goal of the time period- as previously discussed, that will be taking the time to appreciate and celebrate the exciting moments in my and my loved ones lives as they are happening.
Today I will be reflecting on, writing, and revising my lists, and tomorrow I will start sharing them with you- I need to be held accountable!
Now I've got to go get to it- November 29, 2015 is only 1001 days away!
