10 ideas a day in 2017

A year of writing down ideas…

This whole year I have been trying to write down 10 ideas a day. Some days I get all 10. Some I get a few and sometimes I don’t write down any. Ideally if I did this every day I would have 300 ideas every month, 300 x 12 = 3,600 ideas a year. So how did I do (so far)?

2017 Analysis

I am ignoring the fact that months have different numbers of days and picking 30 as the baseline. So everything is 30 days x 10 ideas = 300 ideas a month.

56 ideas / 300 = 18%

108 ideas / 300 = 36%

70 ideas = 23%

23 ideas = 7%

25 ideas = 8%

74 ideas = 24%

38 ideas = 12%

64 ideas = 21%

36 ideas = 12%

60 ideas = 20%

67 ideas = 22%

119 ideas = 38%



741/3,600= 20%

The beginning of the year was strong. This last half of the year is going pretty good, but I could do better. Strong back half of the year. Ended with 20% on the year. Not bad! And I really enjoyed the whole process.

I am also building a small website to track the results that I will be building out and improving. http://joshdance.me/100/Day7/
