101 Things In 1001 Days!



I’m one of those people who, left to herself, will happily spend her days vegging in front of the computer watching trashy TV and reading braincell-burning trash. So in an effort to actually get out and do stuff, I’ve signed up for 101 Things In 1001 Days.

Say what?

101 Things In 1001 Days means just that- you commit to completing 101 specific tasks in 1001 days- the idea is that a specific time-frame for goals means you’re less likely to procrastinate and actually do shit.

Great! When do you start? 

26 April, 2014. I’m a little late getting this up.

And when does the challenge end?

21 January, 2017… a little more than two and a half years!

Cool! Can I sign up, too?

Sure! All the information you need (and tons of helpful list ideas) is at DayZeroProject.com.
