Looking at the Day Zero Project
My Day Zero Project is scheduled to end April 28, 2017.
That’s less than a year from now.
As I looked over my list late Tuesday night (as I struggled to find something to blog about), I realized it had been a while since I posted an update.
Looking at the list, I realized a few things:
- I’m never going to be able to finish this list;
- There are so many blogging topics/items here that I need to tap into;
- There are a lot of things I could have easily finished by now, had I been focusing.
I think my biggest problem is I tend to forget about the project. I know in the back of my head, but I don’t sit there and say “let’s cross this goal off the list.”
For example, one of the goals is to go a photo alphabet – basically, take a photo of something that starts with each letter of the alphabet. I know I’ve likely done that since I started this rendition of the project, but I kind of want to do it in an order. Maybe I’m wrong in my thinking there. Maybe I should go through my photos since I started and put them in order.
Or maybe I should just set out one weekend to complete that goal.
Some of the goals likely won’t happen, well, because there just isn’t the time or the ability to finish them. Some are travel, some are things based on geocaching, and some are for interests I no longer have. I expected there would be a few I wouldn’t complete, but I think doing a good bulk is still a pass.
First, for those who don’t know, the Day Zero Project is a goal-setting setup where you give yourself 1,001 days to complete 101 tasks of your choosing. The tasks can be anything.
With mine, I choose to leave them private until I complete the actual task.
At this moment, I have 22 completed – but I have many in progress. I am hoping in the next month or two I can put a dent in a few of these others ones and see where I can go. My goal at this point is to try and get to 50 percent completion by the end of it (I finished 38 the first time I did this), so we’ll see where it goes. I just have to focus and go with it some and see where I land!
When I finish items and blog about them, the list is kept on a different page on the blog. You can see the page by clicking here.
Anybody else do this or something like it? How did you do or how are you doing?
