Inspiring like always...go get 'em Steph! HNY!
Good list for 2010. I hope you accomplish it all. Happy New Year!
I love how you basically have "OKRs" for your personal life :) Good luck with these awesome goals in 2010!!
@Mina and @Kimberly Thanks and happy new year to you too!
@Vivian It's funny they do sound like OKRs, but I've been doing a yearly list since 7th grade, long before I even heard of OKRs =)
Btw, you can very easily fit in a trip to Japan AND Hong Kong by stopping over in Japan as part of your flight to/from HK (Northwest does a stopover). I'm just saying. =D
Lols, duly noted Pasta dear.  Will keep you posted on travel plans!
Believe it or not, this is the post that I have been looking forward to from last year! :) Happy New Year!
@Eric glad to deliver!  Wow I don't think much has changed since last year but hope it was worth the wait =)
