Recently a co-worker of mine told me that she started a blog as a result of an article she read, where the author challenged people to make a list of 101 things that they wanted to accomplish in 1001 days (roughly 3 years). When I read her list it instantly inspired me to 1. Start a blog, to share some of my own thoughts, and 2. make my own list. I figure, why have all these thoughts and ideas rolling around in your brain, when you get them out on "screen", and keep yourself rolling with your list. So, here we go!
