DayZero Project. Mark II

The Mission:
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 my part).

Why 1001 Days?
Many 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.

Start Date: Monday 25th May 2015

End Date: Monday 19th February 2018

0 out of 101 complete so far.

  1. Loose at least 2 stone . (0lbs/28lbs)

  2. Quit Smoking.
    Not only for the health side of things, but also it’s so darn expensive.
  3. Find out blood type.
    I’m curious about that type of thing you see, I have a thirst for knowledge.
  4. Donate Blood.
    I’m already on the Organ Donor list, and I’m on the Brain Donor list for Parkinson’s disease too, so what harm is giving a little blood away.

    Like I said before, I have a thirst for knowledge.

    Just a bit of fun.

    Health reason, too much sugar and all that jazz, plus the dentist would probably prefer it.
  23. Go camping for at least 2 nights.
    Something I’ve never done, well I have, But I don’t think camping in the back garden is quite the same.
