Jonathan Coulton's Thing a Week

One of the things I've noticed about 365 projects is that they are an amazing way to make things happen if you're clear about your goals. When Johnathan Coulton decided he wanted to become a professional musician he quit his job as a computer programmer and spent a year making a song a week. The result? He's achieved his goal and then some! The delightful music he made in that year led to a bunch of incredible things like having his songs used on TV shows and video games and touring the country with bands like They Might Be Giants! Not bad, eh?

Be sure to listen to his particularly brilliant cover of Sir Mix-A-Lot's Baby Got Back.

And also the cleverly spooky original song Creepy Doll

You can hear all of the songs and more on his blog HERE.

Look for an exclusive interview with Jonathan in my new book 365: A Daily Creativity Journal which is officially being released on December 15th, but can be pre-ordered now at your favorite local independent bookstore  and at all major online book retailers.
