This is the beginning of anything you want…

543667_10151516005045347_638629151_nSo, I wrote a book.  Yes, a book.  I had just returned from 9 months of working and traveling in Western Europe and I was unemployed.  TED talks became my life blood and I was feeling inspired (and like I had way too much time on my hands).

I decided to write 1000 words a day for 50 days.  When I was finished, I’d take a month to edit it.  That way, on January 1st, 2013, I will have written a book.  Now, the idea wasn’t the crazy part.  The crazy part is that I actually did it.  I’m just about finished with the first draft of my book. Is it good?  Not really, but the point is that I did it.  I did something I could have spent the rest of my life glorifying in my head.

Now, I’ve never been one to make goals like this for myself.  I spent most of my life pre-occupied with my weight and dreams that other people expected that I should have.  This year I want it all to be different.  This year I want to make every day worthwhile.

What am I going to do?  I’m going to have a monthly challenge.  Something that I have to do everyday for that entire month.  I must complete the task/challenge everyday.  If I miss a day I have to make it up.

I will begin January 1st, 2013.  Here we go!
