Santa Barbara, Ca

I'm a full-time rambler and contract designer with as many skill sets in my quiver as there are plane tickets in my passbook. I've worked in ornamental iron, jigsaw puzzle design, bookmaking, glass engraving, and a variety of other mediums. I'm currently living out of a backpack as I trek my way around the world.

This Just In from @JustChuckinIt: Your New Year's Resolutions are Rubbish

Ryan and I have similar views on the tradition of New Year's Resolutions: they're wonderfully-packaged caca. Not that we're special in thinking so—everyone takes a crack at this tired tradition of setting goals.

I've already shared my trade secret for goal-setting/life-hacking/whatever-meme-have-you, so I won't bother to repeat myself here. But I will point out that what my post exercises in practicality, Ryan's post exercises in sheer gusto. His words are less a to-do list than they are an about-face, a bucket of cold water on a pillow full of sleeping cherubs.

If you're in need of a swift kick in the ass, Ryan's got a hefty supply. Head over to Just Chuckin' It to see his motivating post on setting goals in 2013.
