101 in 1001

101 things in 1001 days Ever since I first heard about the Day Zero Project, I’ve been thinking a lot about what I’d like to do in my near future. 101 things in 1001 days is a brilliant cross between the bucket list and the to-do list, allowing dreams and goals to be accomplished within a realistic timeframe. Creating such a list is just what I needed, and I’d encourage anyone to do the same!
