If you’ve ever wanted to design your own font, Kathryn is detailing the process in a series of stories on Go Mighty.
What do-gooders do with extra produce. Thanks for the idea, Stefanie.
What’s new on your life list?
I’m really proud of the growing sense of community over on Go Mighty. Thanks to everyone who has taken the time to load up your life list and share your experiences. Reading them is a daily source of inspiration and, after 12 years of writing here about my life list and all of the support I have received, it’s a joy to finally have the opportunity to read more about your goals and cheer you on.
Here are a few favorites from the week:
I shared my thoughts in the comments on this one. I cannot recommend this enough. It will transform your wardrobe.
This story prompted me to add a new goal to my life list. Good luck, Jessica. You’ve got this.

This week, members of the Go Mighty community have begun sharing stories about what they achieved over the holidays and what they hope to accomplish in the coming year. Here are a few of my favorites:
It’s not just a holiday card. It’s a challenge.
Megan wants to capture 15 mothers on film. When she completes the project, Olay has agreed to donate $500 to a charity that supports maternal health. One down, fourteen to go.
Smart and generous. Melissa is acquiring the skill to create her own homestead while building for others.
Do you have a word you are focusing on for the new year? Britt does.
Congrats to Katherine for braving the waves and checking this goal off of her life list.
Wine suggestions. I know you’ve got them. Jessi needs them.
What have you resolved to cross off of your life list in 2013?
I gave this postcard of encouragement to my friend Fiona before her first swim lesson. While she conquers her fear of the water, I’m learning to swim freestyle. She’s sharing the experience on Go Mighty. Our first lesson was last week.
Here are a few experiences shared on Go Mighty that caught my eye this week:
Let’s talk about confidence. What makes you feel sexy?
Watch Kathryn complete her goal in 25 seconds.
Do you have a poem committed to memory? Come share your favorite line.
My doodling friend Helen Jane needs some nouns that begin with Q and X. Chime in, word nerds.
After a thirty-three year love affair, Sheri finally crossed this goal off of her list.
Have you added anything new to your life list, recently?
The Space Camp party was all right, I guess.
Every year when the geeks stand around drinking Tangtinis in their physics-jokes costumes, I want to weep with relief. You are my people.
On the other hand, Pluto is such a bummer lately.
Team Mighty is a little more upbeat.
I can’t wait to tell you all about the talks, projects, goals, and ideas that made my brain full over the weekend.
In the meantime, a few attendees requested Camp Mighty gift certificates so they could give a camp trip to loved ones for the holidays. Those will be available for the next few weeks! Enjoy the registration loophole while you can.
It’s launch time for our beta, are you ready?
3…2…1 GO MIGHTY!
Yus, son! Sarah, Laura, Amber and I are popping champagne corks and clinking glasses, toasting our brand new adventure. To celebrate, we’re giving you guys a sneak peak, so please join us. Request an invite and BYOLL (Bring Your Own Life List) to upload. Go Mighty is all baby steps and beta steps right now, but that’s where you come in. We want to know what you actually want and needs before we decide which new features to roll out first. Go Mighty will be evolving dramatically over the next few days and weeks, so give us your feedback, and please be gentle. It’s possible we’re a little sleepy over here.
And, what kind of party would it be without presents? Our bangarang partner Olay is gifting goals to to a few early Go Mighty users. (Which? Full circle, y’all.) To be considered for a gifted goal, you’ll want to tag your goal with ‘Olay.’ For more details and eligibility requirements, visit GoMighty.com/Olay.
If you’re a Rachael Ray fan, look for me on the show today. Nothing like testing the servers with a national TV appearance right out the gate, am I right? Keep your fingers crossed on this point, my friends. Maybe your eyes too.
In the meantime, let us know what you want to see on the site (firstname.lastname@example.org). Get uploading and give us your feedback so we can iterate with you in mind. Custom, baby, that’s what we’re all about.
Now. Here’s the part where I thank you again for being on my team. Thank you. After twelve years of deep kindness from all of you, it’s such a joy to finally be able to give something tangible back. I cannot wait to really get to know you. Lurkers — I am especially talking to you. Show your faces! Tell us what you want. Let’s all start helping each other.
