My Day Zero Project list

The Day Zero Project is about inspiring you to achieve your goals.

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).

If you would like to participate you can find the Day Zero Project website here.
