I’ve culled away the vast majority of this Day Zero Project and created this small list of things I would like to do this year.
As noble as it was to try and do 101 things across 3.5 years, there was just no way I would be able to come up with 101 things, much less be able to do them all across 1001 days. I think this smaller list is much more manageable.
Over time, I might add a few more items to this list, but I certainly don’t think it’s going to be an expansive tome of idealistic goals that I will feel bad for not completing later. But these are things that I really want to get done, and there is no time like the present to do them.
  1. Take a ballroom dance class.
  2. Donate blood.
  3. Organize an Operation Happy Sock initiative.
  4. Finish my 4th of July quilt by the 4th of July.
  5. Save $5,000.
  6. Learn to drive stick shift.
  7. Get my concealed carry license.
  8. Get my passport.
  9. Go to Niagara Falls.
  10. Go whitewater rafting.
  11. Take more photographs.
  12. Read 25 books (fiction, non-fiction, memoir, whatever).
  13. Have 170 blog entries for 2012.
