A Life Sold - The Book of 100 Goals in 100 Weeks

Our theme this week on The Love Project is goal setting. If you're having trouble coming up with a bucket list of things you want to do with your life, you might want to read Ian Usher's book, A Life Sold, for inspiration.

I met Ian in 2008 after reading his blog and being very intrigued with his idea of 100 Goals in 100 Weeks. This project was in the wake of the vast publicity he got from "putting his life up for sale" on eBay after a divorce.

Ian and I met in 2008, and in fact, he is Mr. November in my book, The Laptop Dancer Diaries. (In my book, you'll see that, I, too, take goals very seriously!)

I interviewed Ian right at the end of his 100-week project. He told me he was going to write a memoir about his adventures and now he has done just that! Ian has a very authentic voice, describing the background and then the details of this incredible journey -- the places he visited, the people he met along the way, and the love he experienced. Pick it up and create your own 100 goals!
