Looking Ahead to New Years

For a few days at least, the Christmas festivities have calmed down. Starting this weekend and on through, well, almost mid-January, we will be super busy. Which is why I'm thankful that today is the day I found out about the Day Zero Project because I actually have a minute or two to sit down and think about it. The Day Zero Project is pretty much where you create a list of 101 things you want to accomplish in the next 1001 days. It can be as simple as making dinner for a friend through visiting all 7 continents. It is very easy to add to and edit your lists right on the website, too. And it's all free to use! There is also a "Done" list for things you find that you've already done and a "someday" list for things you find or think of that you don't think you could accomplish in the next 1001 days (approximately 2.75 years) but want to do in the future.

Anyway, I'm still working on getting to 101 on my list (at this very second I'm at 33... just started... and you totally don't have to do a full 101, I just want to) and have a handful on my done and someday lists, but I had to stop and let you all know about it! I think it's an awesome thing. Everyone has stuff on their "bucket list" but rarely give it a second thought. For me, having a timeline to get these things done will help a lot. I don't have anything on my list that involves a whole lot of advanced planning, like visiting all 7 continents, mainly because we'll be moving fairly soon to who-knows-where and we just don't know what's going to happen in the next year. But I have some awesome things listed that I'm already excited to do and I'm going to officially start on January 1st.

I had already planned to complete the 365 Project and when I saw that it was one of the top 101 on the Day Zero Project, it inspired me to add it to my list, too. I also added to "read the Bible in 90 days" since I have already committed myself to that (you can see the button on my sidebar). There are also other things like "make a snowman" or "plant a window box herb garden" that I have always wanted to do and now have extra motivation to go ahead and do!

Anyone else doing or planning to do the Day Zero project?

**update: Nah... totally starting the Day Zero Project today. :) A few things I know I won't be doing until the start of the year (like the 365 Project I want to start on the 1st of the year) or until we move, but there are plenty of things I can start working towards and there is no time like the present!! I also plan on blogging about this every so often. Should be fun!**
