"Cankicky" is what you do when the boss has handed you a project that's not worth your effort, or one that is sure to change its objectives at three times before being cancelled.

Cankicky.com -- sounds like a game: kick the can or you can kick the habit.

Goalkit -- kits for the goal setting or tracking.

First thought: she is a soccer mom, a long thought later: she's a career counselor
