The 40 Most Difficult Goals to Complete on Day Zero Project
          
 
While I was building the new Top 101 Things page, I happened to notice that some goals had a very high completion rate, such as See a movie in 3D, while others had been completed by less than 1% of the people who added it to their lists - such as Visit all 7 continents. This gave me an idea to research which goals the Day Zero community have found the most difficult to cross off their lists.

To increase the relevancy of the results I have only included goals that at least 1,000 participants want to do. Here are the results, with the least completed goal first.
 
 
  3. Keep a “My Day in Six Words” journal for 6 months
