Happy 2011! As the Out of Office team starts a new year, I’ve heard a lot of talk about resolutions and getting back on track after the indulgence of the holidays. I think it’s fair to say that most people are pretty good at coming up with resolutions. It’s keeping them that becomes challenging, and I’m no exception.
This year, I’ve pledged to do better at working exercise into my daily routine. I won’t bore you with the details, but suffice it to say that there are many things I’d rather do than go to the gym. Like eat. Or catch up on my favorite TV shows while eating. But I digress. The point is that it’s not going to be easy and I know I’ll need some encouragement along the way.
In that spirit, I thought of something simple to keep me on track: magnet resolution reminders! I thought I’d create small ones with short phrases that keep my goal front of mind. And since they’ll stick to anything metal, like the fridge, gym locker or office drawers, I can use them every day to literally “stick to” my resolutions.
To create my resolution reminders, I started with the designs
on the FedEx Office website. These are great, because you can quickly plug in your information or get creative by changing fonts, colors and the design layout. You can order individual magnets from your nearest FedEx Office
or, if you made your resolution with a group of friends, there are online price breaks for larger quantities that include free seven-day shipping.
I’ll keep you posted on my progress. In the meantime, if you have any tips on keeping resolutions, or want to share what you’ve committed to this year, we’d love to hear it in the comments!
