Best of Zen Habits in 2007

It’s been an amazing year here at Zen Habits. From starting out with only two readers (my wife and my mom) in January 2007 to today, when Zen Habits has more thank 26K subscribers and is one of the Top 100 blogs

I cannot put in words how overwhelmed I am by all of you, the readers of Zen Habits.

Thank you all, from the bottom of my heart.

As it is impossible to avoid reading “Best of” posts this time of year, I figured that there’s no sense in resisting … and so, for my new readers and as a review for older readers, I present the Best of Zen Habits, 2007 edition.
