My 101 in 1001 Challenge 30% Update

I have just logged into the Day Zero Project website and I was shocked to discover that I am well over half way through my 1001 days!

I apparently have 480 days left until I finish on July 29th 2020.

So much for completing half of my challenges by now…..

And so much for writing a half way through post on Day 500, this will have to do!

Give 101 things to Charity #101in1001 #58

Give 101 things to Charity.

I loathe throwing good things away. As the children have grown, the amount of things / items / stuff that we have bought over the years is criminal, clothes, toys, consoles (which become obsolete as soon as you buy them). With few friends with children younger than ours to give the clothes to it is hard to know what to do with everything we have accumulated.

I don’t want to throw them away, especially as most things nowadays are plastic based (even clothes!)

My 101 in 1001 Challenge 20% Update

My 101 in 1001 Challenge 10% Update

I can’t believe that I am 10% through my challenge in just over a month. Actually, I can, the last time I attempted a 101in1001 challenge I did exactly the same.

I ticked the one-off challenges quite quickly, pottered along with the midrange ones and then ground to halt near the end.

The idea behind 101in1001 is easy, set yourself 101 challenges to complete in 1001 days, they can be big / small / anything at all.

You can read my list of things to try and accomplish before July 2020 here. here.

So… My first ten challenges are listed below – it is going to get an awful lot tougher from now on…

Here they are:

Work an hour a month for Charity #101in1001 #20

When I set out my 101 challenges back in 2014 I had no idea how difficult some of them would be to achieve, not because the challenge is hard but because timing just doesn’t work out. If I had to set myself some other goals I would be far more realistic.

Doing something everyday for a week is fair enough, if you fail you just start again but doing something every month or every week for the entire challenge just shy of three years is impossible.
