Learn a new skill in 100 days
tHiS site wants to motivate you into learning a new skill in a hundred days by tracking your progress each day through a short video post. along the way, people can like your vids and send you a few words of encouragement too.
Karen X. Cheng is pretty cool. She quit Microsoft with a song as a resignation letter and then learned how to dance in a year, which went viral. Now she’s taken her learn- ing from that last project and turned it into her new website: 100.
the idea behind the site is to get better at something — dancing, writing, even just waking up early in the morning — by doing it for 100 days in a row and recording your progress in 10-second videos that you upload to the site. at a time, you can only take on one new project. although it asks you to sign up with your Facebook or twitter account, you can choose to make your videos private or public. if public, people can like them or comment on them, giving you the encouragement to do better.
there is no negativity attached to skipping a day — in fact, you can even have your 100 days not be consecutive, it’s up to you.
“Not a big deal at all. Just keep going,” Cheng says.
at the end of the 100 days, you get a oneminute video upload and you can choose to extend your project to 365 days or unlimited days. — McClatchy-tribune information Services
