If you haven’t seen it during your time perusing the internet, then let me tell you about an amazing goal setting project I stumbled upon the other day! It’s called 101 in 1001 or the Day Zero Project. I was originally inspired by Mackenzie from Design Darling and continued my research on Day Zero Project. The idea is simple, complete 101 goals in 1001 days. These goals can be small or large, easy or hard, and from any part of your life. 1001 days is roughly 2.75 years, which is plenty of time to accomplish 101 goals. This project goes beyond what the normal to-do list does but pushes you to accomplish things in your life that may normally be put on the back burner.
I don’t look at this project like a bucket list, because to me, a bucket list should be about grand adventures and life experiences. The 101 in 1001 project is more about thinking about where you are in your life. It makes you think about what you wish you could have accomplished by now, want you want to accomplish in a short-term and long-term time frame, and what truly makes you happy. It took me about a week to actually write out my list. I wanted each goal to really mean something to me. Some of these goals are small and can be accomplished in one go. And some of these goals are written out to take the entire 1001 days to complete.
If we’re being honest here, thinking about goals, especially 101 in 1001 days, can be tough! It really makes you look towards the future, even if you don’t know what the future holds, and plan for it. The idea behind my goals are that they can be accomplished no matter what my life circumstances are. And 1001 days from now puts me about a month and half before my 30th birthday. So this a great way to push myself to accomplish my goals and have something amazing to reflect on when thinking about my 20’s.
Goal #1 of 101 in 1001: Write down 101 goals for the next 1001 days
Well that was easy! If you’re having trouble completing your list, make a few easy goals! Like I said, goal setting can be tough. Making one of your goals the completion of your 101 in 1001 list is a great motivator. I want to keep myself accountable of my goals. The best way to do this is to make my list public knowledge.

Goal #2 of 101 in 1001: Create a tracking journal for my 101 goals
For me, the easiest and most hassle free way to track my 101 goals in to use this blog. I have every intention of blogging about every goal I accomplish in order to keep myself accountable and share these achievements with you! You could easily set up your own blog to track your goals, and I show you how to do just that here. But there’s plenty of ways besides a blog that you can track your goals if you’d like to keep them private.
If you like to have physical evidence of your progress and not just in the online world, you could find a journal that you love and begin setting it up. But that’s not the only way to track. You could use your daily planner or you could use excel or create your own tracking list. Below I’ve picked out a few of my favorite journals! They’re super cute which, in my opinion, helps with motivation.
