Update: 101 in 1001

Well I figured it was time to review my list and see if I have got anything accomplished these past six months! I have been crazy busy working on planning a wedding and I kind of forgot that I was even doing the project! I need to get the rest of my list posted but for now I have just updated my current list. Updates are in red!

Well not sure if any of you guys have heard of this but there is a website called Day Zero Project ( It is pretty cool, here are the rules..

The Challenge:

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 on your part).

Why 1001 Days?

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.

Here are my first 50... anybody want to do it with me!???!:]
