101 in 1001 #2

Nearly eight years ago I started a mission. It was to complete 101 tasks/activities in 1001 days (nearly three years). It’s known as the Day Zero Project. You can add whatever you like onto the list, it has no boundaries really.

Just over 4 years ago my 1001 days was up. I managed to complete about 47% of them. Which I don’t think is too bad. Ever since I finished I’d said I’d quite like to do another one some day. One of my darling friends finished her list in January, and we said that we would do our next ones together.

I went to visit her last weekend, so we sat down and started to write our lists. It starts tomorrow (1st November 2017) and will finish 1001 days later on 29th July 2020. That seems a really long time away! So here it is. My 101 in 1001 #2.

Have you ever done the Day Zero Project? How many of your 101 in 1001 did you complete? Would you do a 101 in 1001 #2? Let me know what you would include.
