I’ve recently encountered the Day Zero Project through my friend Bryant. To quote directly from the Project Web site:

The Mission:
Complete 101 preset tasks in a period of 1001 days.

The Criteria:
Tasks must be specific (ie. no ambiguity in the wording) with a result that is either measurable or clearly defined. Tasks must also be realistic and stretching (ie. represent some amount of work on my part).

My current plan is to begin this project on Sunday, February 1, 2009 – which will allow me to end on Sunday, October 30, 2011. This makes me happy for many reasons, particularly that I can wrap up on the day before Halloween and therefore take the following week as a personal vacation.

I’ll be working to chronicle the actual work, the logic behind my choices, and my true progress in the main portion of this blog, but this page will serve as the primary list and home for shorthand tracking of my progress.

If any of my readers, either here or on the various RSS and social networking sites, decide to follow this lead and start up a project of their own, please let me know! I’d love to keep a running list of who’s involved so as to increase our ability to cheer one another on!
