Day Zero project list

I decided to start a Day Zero list. It's a project where you identify 101 goals to complete in 1001 days (2.75 years). You can learn more at

I have identified 65 goals with 36 more to go. I'm trying to post them here instead of on the actual site because I rather blog about keeping them (or deleting them).. so I will post them as soon as I figure out how to colorize them.. I'm going to try on this post, but it may just come out as one big blank.. we'll see..
