Today’s Resolution: Stop Supporting Unsuccessful Decisions

Sometimes our pride gets the best of us. We make decisions and we stick to them. Sometimes our decisions don’t pan out the way we wanted but keep supporting them with our time, attention and money.

There have been times in my life where I have made poor decisions only to keep making them so I wouldn’t look like a chump or a quitter. Today, put to rest any poor decisions you’ve made in the past. Stop feeding them and move on.

Today’s Resolution: Review Your Debt

Debt is a serious issue for a lot of people. Today you’ll be taking a good look at what kind of debt you have. I’ve been personally using online applications like Mint and Ready for Zero to help me figure out where I’m spending my and how I can reduce any debts in the future.

Don’t be afraid, face your debt head on.

Today’s Resolution: Go Rock Hunting

I’ve been feeding my inner geologist over the past couple months by going emerald mining, gemstone cutting and rock hunting. In fact, last week I bought a Facetron lapidary machine so I can get into cutting my own gemstones and the guy who sold it to me was a real craftsman.

So today, fire up the internet and find out what kind of rocks and gemstones are found in your area. Think of this as a treasure hunt. Can’t do it today? Then plan a trip this summer.

Then, find a of couple spots and go digging.

Good luck and let me know what you find! We just went digging for Emeralds in Hiddennite, NC last month and it was awesome.

Today’s Resolution: Grill it Up

The summer is here and that means one thing, BBQs! Take some time today to grill something special for your friends or family. We just got these sweet marinade & salad dressing combo packs the other day, so I’ll be making Amanda some grilled chicken. Don’t forget the charcoal or propane!

Today’s Resolution: Get It All Done

Get it all done

It’s Friday. The end of the week. You may have already checked out for the weekend, but resist the urge; Fridays can often be your most productive day! Don’t quit until you have everything done today. When you get everything done, there will be nothing to worry about over the weekend!

Amanda and I have been working like crazy this week. Today will be our most productive day, and will hopefully lead to a very relaxing weekend thinking about nothing but all the fun crap we’re gonna do.

Today’s Resolution: Moisturize

Today's Resolution: Moisturize

Our skin is the biggest organ we have. Sometimes it’s often the most neglected.

My grandmother is 98 years old. She has always moisturized her face every night before bed. People are often astonished to find out how old she because she looks so youthful. I attribute her youthful appearance to her night time moisturizing routine.

Today, moisturize your skin so you”ll look great at 98 too.

Today’s Resolution: Stay Focused and Productive

If you’re in the US, you’re probably thinking that this resolution doesn’t apply to you, but it does. It’s Memorial Day, so what? Well, how often do you spend time with your friends and family and sometimes disappear onto your phone checking email or reading Facebook? If you have the day off today, your goal is to stay focused on what you’re doing (like having a BBQ). Put the distractions away and be awesome at what you’re doing right now—even if it’s eating a hotdog—by staying focused.  And if not, then get back to work!

This week I’ll be using a Chrome browser extension called Stay Focused. It lets me set an allotted time to view certain web pages. Once my time is up it blocks the website for the rest of the day. They also make a browser extension for Firefox user called Leech Block that does the same thing.

I look forward to staying more productive this week. Let me know how you make out and if you’ve been using other tools to stay focused and productive.

Today’s Resolution: Start Your Day With Yoga

Start Your Day With Yoga

I have always wanted to get into Yoga. I’ve just keep forgetting to do it. Today is the day! Do you do Yoga? What kind? How has it benefited your life? I’ve included a video below of beginner yoga session that anyone can do.

Today’s Resolution: Start a Dream Journal

I have pretty epic dreams. They usually involve celebrities, flying, and going to parties. I don’t remember most of my dreams and I’d love to remember more of them. Someone suggested I keep a dream journal at my bedside. The idea is once you wake up from a dream you immediately write down what happened.

Dream journals can be a great source of inspiration if you’re in the creative field. Do you already keep track of your dreams? Have you found it helpful. Let me know in the comments.

Today’s Resolution: Make Something From Scratch

Amanda and I are down in Florida and it should be no surprise that we’ve come across tons of road side orange stands. Theres hundreds of them. We’ve been making fresh squeezed orange juice everyday. It’s been a lot of fun and brings us to today’s resolution. Making something from scratch.

Whether it’s orange juice or chocolate chip cookies, make it from scratch. What did you make today? Let us know in the comments.
