"Chillin, sittin' on about half a million…" — The Notorious B.I.G.
- Got to College station, waited three trains, couldn't get on, so I hiked it to Yonge/Bloor station, leaving me 5 minutes to get to Dufferin station on time – about 15 minutes away
- Got on the train, and at Ossington – the stop right BEFORE Dufferin – a dude screws up the doors behind him, because – wait for it – the train is so packed
- Get to Dufferin, and guess what – the doors don't open. Only at the specific exit I'm at. Aww yeah.
- Get off at the next stop, Lansdowne, and make my way BACK to Dufferin
- Meet Sarah 15 minutes late. Because this is apparently how I roll. Thanks, TTC.
We all have ideas. Some change the world. Some are fleeting. Some shouldn't have been dreamt up in the first place. They're out there, though. But what do we do with all of these ideas? Unfortunately, many of the greatest ideas get lost in the ether as we forget them, don't act upon them because we don't think they're good enough, don't share them with others for fear that they'll steal and profit from them or just simply have others shoot them down – it could even be a combination of these things. I find that these things happen far too often in some of the circles I'm in, but I can be especially good at not listening to people at times :). One of the tenets of the 2K11 24/7 will be to act on the ideas that would otherwise be left to die. Ideas for apps. Ideas for websites. Tools. Comics. Parties. Events. Just things that can be done to improve the quality of life for people in general. It's impossible to know where to start, but I'm going to try hard to keep innovation at the helm, and hopefully myself and others can come out of 2011 with some disgustingly awesome content!

What did I spend my day doing? Reading Mashable articles on how to develop an app and start a small business in the digital world and further develop my understanding of jQuery with the help of materials from Sitepoint.
In fact, depending on how you measure the timeline of Rome’s development, some would argue that it took as long as 870 years! But I’m not here to wax history to you.
Dunno if I’ll get this post up in time, but eh.
So yes, if you want to achieve a goal, you need to give it time. Even the things that appear to have been accomplished overnight are often done as the result of months of prior work and preparation.
