Day Zero List

Howdy,

After my birthday when I turned the dreaded 25 or as my boyfriend so lovingly put it 'you  would be in the overs category on x factor' I had a little bit of mid-twenties crisis. After
taking 2 years out before Uni and then enrolling on a 4 year course I am quite far behind
in my ideal life plan. I feel like I haven't really accomplished much and as such had an
overwhelming urge to list all the things I want to do - this way if it is written down I will
be able to keep referring to it and crossing things off!

When searching for lists like this I came across the idea of a Day Zero list. Basically you make a list of 101 things you would like to achieve in 1001 days. It sounded easy writing a list of a mere 101 things to do but I struggled and actually only finished decided on my final list yesterday.

  1. I love the day zero lists, I'm on my second one! I didn't manage to get much crossed off the first one, I did unrealistic goals so this time around I'm hoping I'll finish it.

    I really like your list, we have similar things, or I had a few things on my list last time, or want to add them to my next list! Good luck with it, and here's a link to my list.
