Today’s Resolution: Look Like a Million Bucks

Let’s face it, not even celebrities can look their best every day. However, with their big bank accounts and spending sprees, they can certainly look like a million bucks when they decide to hit the town. Today your goal is simple. Pay a little extra attention to how you feel when dressing and going out today. There’s certainly an outfit in your closet that makes you feel like a million bucks when you wear it. Feel good today.

Today’s Resolution: Complete a Pinterest Project (or Any Other Personal Project)

Oh hey, have you met Pinterest? It’s the giant multi-million user social network where people store favorite design ideas, craft projects and photo inspirations that they (at some point), hope to complete themselves. Even if you’re not on Pinterest, there’s surely a project you’ve been hoping to work on when you get to it. The truth is that there will always be other things to do. So today your resolution is to use your free time to either complete a project, or to at least plan when you’re going to complete it.

Today’s Resolution: Don’t Get Distracted

Distractions are everywhere. When I get distracted it’s usually by something else I should have done at one point, but seems to be more fulfilling than what I’m supposed to be doing right now. I dub this effort “productive procrastination”. So for today, your resolution is not to impose productive procrastination time, but to actually just avoid distractions. Don’t “kill time” with anything that’s not actually a to-do for the day. By avoiding distractions, you might just find that your day ends a little earlier and a little prouder than on previous days. You might actually enjoy more free time! And that’s all we really want more of, right?

Today’s Resolution: Learn a Savvy New Skill

Everyone has friends that have a skill they’re envious of, whether it’s knowing how to fix a toilet, play a ukelele, or whistle with a blade of grass. You probably have several skills that other people look to you for guidance about. Today your resolution is to learn a new skill. Preferably, ask somebody to teach you how it is that they do what they do. If not, there are plenty of YouTube tutorials to go around.

Today’s Resolution: Sing in the Shower

No need to pipe down this morning for anyone! If you feel like singing that tune that’s been stuck in your head, sing it! Use your shampoo bottle as a microphone and the shower as your stage. Just don’t, you know, whip open the curtain or anything. Things could get a little… damp.

Today’s Resolution: Give It All You’ve Got

Some people have “it” and some people don’t. I’d like to think that anyone who’s following our little resolution blog probably has “it”. And by “it” I mean, motivation, power, confidence, free-will and the awesomeness to want to change the world. They do their own laundry, pay their own bills, shovel when it snows and by golly if a friend needs help moving, they don’t even ask for free pizza and beer!

So today’s resolution is to “give it all you’ve got”. Despite having a bad week, or even a bad hair day, just be awesome today. Don’t do anything half-assed and be proud of everything you accomplish, even if it’s just taking out the trash.

Today’s Resolution: Don’t Think About Money

Money is the root of all evil, right? We need clothes, food and a roof over our heads to survive. Everything else is either debt, dreams or desire. For me, dreams cause the majority of my financial stress, though I know lots of people who suffer from desire (those status-stamping designer handbags) and even more that are sinking in debt. So today your resolution is to forget about it. For one day (unless you’re a cashier or bank teller), try not to think about the green. Whether you need to use it today or not, don’t let a lack of it affect your dreams, and don’t let a debt of it ruin your day.
