Blogger, full-time bum and proud owner of a rubber duck named Bert. Come say hi. I don't bite. Unless you're a cheesecake, then I'd recommend backing away slowly.

101 in 1001

"The tragedy of life doesn't lie in not reaching your goal.
The tragedy lies in having no goal to reach."
Benjamin E. Mays
101 in 1001 is a great little project started by the guys over at Day Zero, in which users are asked to pick 101 goals to complete over the course of 1,001 days. The goals could be big (start your own business, get married) or small (learn an instrument), it doesn't matter, as long as you have to do some amount of work to achieve them, and as long as they are realistic. 

I love things like this, so I'm going to create my own list and hopefully keep you all updated on my progress!
