101 in 1001

I recently came across Day Zero Project, a community of doers who are thinking about what they want to accomplish in the next 1001 days. The platform allows you to add items to your personal 101 in 1001 list, see what others have on their list, and add comments and notes to the individual tasks. Immediately, I signed up and started adding things to me list.

I’ll use this page to keep track of my progress as well as to inspire someone to create their own list (which is an item on MY list). If you sign up, let me know so I can mark that one as complete.

Here’s to having new experiences, getting out of my comfort zone, learning new things, and living life to the fullest!
