This is a blog about getting things done! This is a blog about the heavy lifting that goes into accomplishing worthwhile goals; this is a blog about handling frustration and setbacks. This is a blog about finding the joy in a small achievement, and about dreaming big. This is a place for you to read about steady progress, and a place to read about motivation. This is a place for people who want to do so many things that they have trouble finding time for them all, and are driven enough to focus on the things that matter. If this sounds like you, you’re in the right place!

As someone who always seems to have three or more projects going at once, I know a little bit about focus, drive, and stamina. I’ve done things like move cross-country fitting everything into my car (the journey that this blog starts with!), graduate from Stanford, and write a 50,000 word story in a a month (multiple times!). The things I do today are pretty varied, so you’ll hear about baking, losing weight, reading, or studying programming or foreign languages, or whatever else I’ve decided to work on.
