Ready to come up with a dare, some milestones, and a benchmark or two? Here are some possible scenarios just to get your brain spinning! You do not have to use these benchmarks or follow these paths to qualify for the dare. We welcome any progress on any front as long as you can somehow measure it. In the meantime, here are some obvious ways to measure 25% of something you do everyday.
If you're not ready yet, take a look at our suggestions list for some ideas!
