Today’s Resolution: Mind Your Own Business

Today’s Resolution: Confess Something

Today’s Resolution: Print Out Your Phone Photos

Time to take those digital works of art and turn them into print masterpieces. If you’re one of the many who are replacing your digital camera with heaps of cellphone photos, send a few to your local (or online) photobooth today. In my old apartment, I covered an entire wall with photos from my cellphone and it was pretty spectacular if I do say so myself.

Today’s Resolution: Write Somebody a Letter

We’ve already practiced our penmanship and written someone a (disposable) love letter on Valentine’s Day. Now it’s time for a real letter. One you’ll send in the mail and all that.

Today’s Resolution: Give Something Away

Make a bag of clothes, fill a bag of books, whatever. Find a bin and fill it, or find a cause and support it.

Today’s Resolution: Think About Your Dream Home

Everybody has a dream house. Mine has a couch from Restoration Hardware, a waterfall pool in the backyard, an outdoor pizza oven, a wall of glass windows facing something pretty, and a badass garden. Oh and also a homebed theatre couch thing or even this. Also, some neat bookcases built into random things like you see on Pinterest. And a fireplace. Like, a big one. And there’s more. So today’s resolution is to think about your dream home.

Today’s Resolution: Draw

Drawing is a lost art. In a world of computers, I personally never get the chance to hold a pen very often. So the time to doodle and draw is completely absent from my everyday life. In fact, I don’t even have a desk and most of my pens are dried up. So, it’s no wonder the new Draw Something iPhone app racked up 20 million downloads in it’s first five weeks. I don’t need any new digital addictions though, so I’m going to go with the old pen & paper route for this resolution!

Today’s Resolution: Follow Through

If you’ve been on an epic-failure path of following through lately, this resolution is the fork in your back telling you to cut the crap. In honor of this resolution I’ll also challenge you to make plans that you’ll also follow through on. Let’s do our best to be accountable to ourselves and others.

Today’s Resolution: Do It Yourself

Today’s resolution is to “do it yourself”. That project you’ve been waiting for help on? Do it yourself. Those dishes you hoped someone else would clean? Do them yourself. The blame-game handoff at work? End the cycle and do it yourself. Start a do-it-yourself project, make dinner instead of getting takeout—do it yourself.

Today’s Resolution: Fund a Kickstarter Project

Kickstarter is like angel investing for poor people (er… middle class people?). You don’t need a million dollars to support a product, you only need like $5 or $25 and you usually get something neat out of it. When you find a KickStarter project that you like, you only pay if the project is funded, so if you donate $100 and they don’t meet their goal, you won’t be charged. If they are, then you’ll get something (usually the product they’re raising money for) eventually down the road. For example, a band might ask you to help fund their album, and if you donate $10 or something, they’ll send you an advance copy when it’s ready. Or a couple of kids might have come up with a new iPhone gadget and you’ll get it hot off the presses once they’re produced. Or maybe there’s a fancy new pen in town. Anyway, today’s resolution is to help fund a project. You only need $1 to participate.
