Looking back on our resolutions for 2012, we’re pleased to see that we can check most of the items off the list in some way or another. We did more #GoodSpotting throughout the year, traveled to new places, voted in the presidential election, and ran half marathons. While our meetings may not always be efficient (we like to have some fun, too!), and no one learned to knit, we are giving each other some high fives for being fearless and challenging ourselves to new opportunities and adventures.
This year is no different – we believe it’s possible to be even more fearless and to do even more good in 2013, and we hope that you’ll join us and add some of your own resolutions, goals, and big ideas for next year, in the comments, @casefoundation on Twitter, or on our Facebook page. Here’s what’s on tap for us:
- Take the pledge to Be Fearless (again!).
- Live a more healthy life: less caffeine, more sleep and exercise, and healthful dinners.
- Get more involved in our local community, through volunteering or experimenting with a new hobby.
- Become an advocate for the causes and charities we are most passionate about and raise awareness for their issues.
- Run and complete a 10-mile race…and someone else wants to run their first half marathon.
- Focus on my family more, send them letters, call and show them how much I appreciate and love them.
- Research and support new nonprofits doing fearless work.
- Start biking to work.
- Be grateful for all that is around us.
- Learn to cook more meals from scratch.
- Dedicate time each week to artistic endeavors like drawing, painting, or sewing.
- Set more boundaries – personally and professionally, and be accountable to them.
- Tell our loved ones how much they mean to us – not later, but now.
- Challenge more team members to the No-Counter-Food Challenge.
- Do one big fearless thing next year, and find little ways to be fearless each day.
So what would you add to this list for yourself? How will you pledge to be more fearless in 2013?
