101 Things To Do In 1001 Days

I finished writing my list yesterday so I thought I would share it today.  I am hoping to complete more items on this list than I did on the last one.  We shall see.  :-)   I have started working on the list already.  Woot!
Corey and I got the idea to try this in 2008 when we heard about the Day Zero Project.  Instead of your traditional new year's resolutions you create longer term goals that can be broken down into steps and you have more time for things that might take more than a year to complete (or save money for).  :-)   If you feel compelled to give it a shot and to share your goals than I'd love to hear about it.

I came across this somewhere, so I read your complete list of DayZero goals, and I must say it was pretty awesome! I loved how it really involved really funny and random things.

We've made a blogpost trying to inspire as many as people as possible to participate (one of our goals was to write this ;). Perhaps you want to leave a comment of what you thought your best or most interesting goal was?

Would be awesome :)
