Day Zero is a community of people who love creating lists, setting challenges, and making positive changes in their lives.
1. Select a challenge
2. List your goals
3. Start achieving
Create an action list, not a bucket list.
Create an action list, not a bucket list.
We believe that by making goal setting fun and competitive you can make real progress on achieving your ambitions.
Open-ended goal setting doesn't work. It's only when you assign a time constraint that your focus and determination kicks in.

We are the largest community of goal setters in the World!
— The home of the 101 Things in 1001 Days Project —
For more than 12 years Day Zero Project has existed to give you the motivation and inspiration to set and achieve goals in a fun and challenging way.
As well as the original 101 things in 1001 days challenge we have also come up with a range of other time based challenges. Try the one-year,
weekly challenge of 52 Things in 52 Weeks , or for the twenty-somethings the popular 30 Things by 30.
You can even define your own challenge. Why not set a list of things to do over summer, or a list of things to before graduating? Be creative!
The 101 Things in 1001 Days Challenge
Day Zero started out with the catchy challenge of completing 101 things in 1001 days. This has been enormously popular with tens of thousands of people getting involved and sharing their lists.
We now offer many more types of challenges, but here are the original guidelines for the challenge:
Complete 101 preset tasks in a period of 1001 days.
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 your part).
Why 1001 Days?
Many people have created lists in the past - frequently simple challenges such as New Year's resolutions or a 'Bucket List'. The key to beating procrastination is to set a deadline that is
realistic. 1001 Days (about 2.75 years) is a better period of time than a year, because it allows you several seasons to complete the tasks, which is better for organising and timing some
tasks such as overseas trips, study semesters, or outdoor activities.
Your goals in one place, not all over the place.
You will hear many words of advice when setting goals, but there is one thing every life coach and productivity expert agrees on, and yet very few people take the time to do it… write it down!
Put your goals down on a list and declutter your mind. Make them real.
Check out some of our Feature Lists to gets some ideas for your own goals.
Sometimes, instead of doing something new, the best things to do is change the way you already do something.
With a new year about to begin, there is no better time to take on a new challenge. Here is a selection of fun and interesting monthly goals selected from the community.
With just over a month left in 2020 it's time to shake off this year of inactivity and get ready for a fresh start in the new year.
