Yearly Dollar Goals

"If I had a dollar for everytime I said that...I'd be making money in a very weird way." -- Mitch Hedberg


Every year I give $1 to anyone who challenges themselves to achieve something by the end of the year.

It started off as a fun game...

...and it's still a fun game.

Here's how it works:

  1. Think of a goal.
  2. Fill out this form.👈👈👈
  3. Chat with me and I mail you $1
  4. Do it. Make your dreams come true.
  5. If you don't, mail me back my dollar.

You do not owe me two dollars, just the one I loaned you. Preferably with a few tear stains on it. 😭

As always, you'll get a USPS stamp and pre-addressed envelope. So you've got no excuse to not give me back my buck.

That's it. Easy peasy. Do something fun, learn, grow and get that paper.

2024: Notes

This year, I've standardized the ingestion to a google form. In the past, these goals were default private but this year you have the option of immortalizing yourself in this hall of champions. 🏆

The deadline to confirm your goal is January 21st, 2024

But wait, there's more...

In addition to the dollar, winners will get a bonus special item mailed to them at the end of the year. Only the 2024 winners will know what the prize is. 🤫
