From ordinary gal to dance hotness in 365 days

So you think you can dance? Karen Cheng can. And it only took her a year to learn. Karen Cheng, a San Francisco-based designer, dedicated herself to learning how to dance in 365 days, and chronicled her progress in a time-lapse video and on her website, Dance in a Year. Day 365 culminated with Karen dancing her ass off at the BART station. Check it out:

Reading over her website, it sounds like she already had a lot passion and a natural knack for getting down, but mainly, this was really about wanting it. And practicing like crazy:
Here's my secret: I practiced everywhere. At bus stops. In line at the grocery store. At work — Using the mouse with my right hand and practicing drills with my left hand. You don't have to train hardcore for years to become a dancer. But you must be willing to practice and you better be hungry.

This isn't a story about dancing, though. It's about having a dream and not knowing how to get there — but starting anyway. Maybe you're a musician dreaming of writing an original song. You're an entrepreneur dying to start your first venture. You're an athlete but you just haven't left the chair yet
I'm inspired. What do you want to learn to do in a year?
