This is my third time participating in the Day Zero Project.

Complete 101 preset tasks in a period of 1001 days.
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 my part).
Why 1001 Days?
people have created lists in the past - frequently simple goals such
as New Year's resolutions. 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 organising and timing some
tasks such as overseas trips or outdoor activities.
common goal setting tips:
1. Be decisive. Know exactly what
you want, why you want it, and how you plan to achieve it.
Stay Focused. Any goal requires sustained focus from beginning to end.
Constantly evaluate your progress.
3. Welcome Failure.
Frequently, very little is learned from a venture that did not
experience failure in some form. Failure presents the opportunity to
learn and makes the success more worthy.
4. Write down
your goals. It clarifies your thinking and reinforces your commitment.
Keep your goals in sight. Review them frequently, and ensure that they
are always at the forefront of your thinking.
