Second 101 Goals in 1001 Days

Posted on 2010.03.02 at 11:24
With my new super exciting job at Graphic.ly starting up next Monday (March 8th, 2010) , it seemed like a perfect time to set some goals for the next couple years in another round of 101 goals in 1001 days.  Got some great stuff accomplished last time, and hope to do some great stuff this time.  Overall I am hoping that at the end of this period I can be in a job or profession that I truly enjoy; still be in a loving relationship with Ryan and hopefully be a bit more financially secure.  This first go-round of goals won't have absolutely everything in place for the above three macro-goals; as I am not sure what challenges they will face over the next couple of years.  So many of the goals there now will be truly for the next year and some real long term goals.

GO GO Tolstoy

From today's installment of Anna K:

"And besides, hard though it was for the mother to bear the dread of illness, the illnesses themselves, and the grief of seeing signs of evil propensities in her children--the children themselves were even now repaying her in small joys for her sufferings. Those joys were so small that they passed unnoticed, like gold in sand, and at bad moments she could see nothing but the pain, nothing but sand; but there were good moments too when she saw nothing but the joy, nothing but gold."


Amusing speech: worth a read

Also reminds me of my current struggles and to keep working through them: others have experienced the same thing.


Probably my favorite bit:

"But something happened last week. I had a pitch on Friday, and the day before, I went into my agency to rehearse it. It was my first time attempting this; I’d been up late working; I was exhausted; we had a lot of material and very little time to perfect it. When I finished my presentation and got a blustery response, something horrible happened in front of five men in suits: I cried.

It was a disaster. With those tears, I knew I’d personally let down Eleanor Roosevelt, Marie Curie, Cleopatra, Grandma Moses, Sojourner Truth, Betty Friedan, and everyone in Josie and the Pussycats. Now that five men had seen me lose it, there would never be a female president.

Humiliated, using my iPhone as a tissue (and sadly there is no app for that)..."
