My Resolutions: Kate

“Are the things you’re spending time on consistent with the person you want to be?” -Laura Guido-Clark, designer

I waste a lot of time. There are so many things I want to do and see, but mostly I end up falling into a Youtube or Tumblr or Pinterest vortex, and all of a sudden it’s an hour or five later.

In no particular order, here are my resolutions to spend time on more things that I care about rather than wasting it on things I don’t – after the jump:

My Resolutions: Victoria

After spending a few years in the business world, I’ve learned a thing or two about making goals. Starting with the fact that one should always strive to make S.M.A.R.T. goals. Each goal should have all of the following traits: specific, measurable, attainable, realistic and timely. With this method, I came up with a list of six resolutions I’d like to make for the upcoming year. Find out what they are and why I chose them after the jump.

Breaking Habits

Welcome!

As I welcome October, I realize that we are officially in the last quarter of the year. This got me reflecting on the majority of 2013 that has already passed. Personally, this year has probably been my best out of the last five years because I’ve begun pushing myself out of my comfort zone.

Even though I’ve had such a great year I think to myself, Did I accomplish everything I wanted to? I couldn’t even remember where I had written down my resolutions from the previous year. It was then that I decided to make my first resolution for 2014: remember the resolutions you make. My roommate, Chloe, had suggested that documenting them online would be easiest and a good source of accountability. Thus, this blog was born. It’s a community of friends supporting each other to become better versions of themselves.

But everyone’s problem with resolutions is that they’re impossible to keep; we struggle to break the bad habit cycle. And by the 3rd week of January, we’re practically waving the white flag. Some say it takes 21 days to break a habit; others say 40 days. The list of theories goes on. So my friends and I decided to get a head start now – 3 months in advance just to make sure – so by the time 2014 rolls around, we will have gone through a couple rounds of trial and error. Then we’ll be well on our way to accomplishing our goals next year.

Find what our 2014 resolutions are on our respective About pages. Stay tuned to see how we do.
