The LIFESMART 100-Day Roadmap

In the example shown above, we have used Thortspace to map our 100-Day project. The project map is organized according to four phases of a 100-Day project.

  • Initiating: We start a 100-Day project
  • Adapting: Make adjustments until it works
  • Sustaining: continue practicing for fluency
  • Extending: Make incremental changes and apply in other settings.

In our example, the four phases are as follows:
  • Initiating: Project is a priority for preparing efficiently for exam. It is also important for other projects. Initiating involves setting up OneNote notebook for one project and getting started.
  • Adapting: We have experimented with many tools. We are currently using other tools. Thus, learning workflow needs to be adapted to OneNote.
  • Sustaining: Ongoing use of OneNote during the 100-Day project to integrate OneNote in learning routine.
  • Extending: Extending OneNote use to other projects.
