Designers Reveal Their New Year's Resolutions
A lot of people will poo-poo the idea of New Year's resolutions, saying we should be trying to better ourselves all year long, not just at the turn of a calendar. But we disagree...sort of. Come January 1, there's no better time to re-tool and revisit all the big goals, challenges, and dreams you've had simmering on the back burner. So, to kick-start our own self-improvement mission, we asked a few of our designer friends to pipe in about their New Year's to-do's to offer up a little inspiration. Here's to making good on the best of 'em!
Jason Wu, Designer Jason Wu
"Next year—and every year—I'd really just like to spend more time with my friends and indulge in healthier food."
Chris Benz, Designer
"My resolution is to sleep less but still be more productive!"
Susien Chong, Co-Designer, Lover
"Lover turns 10 in 2011, so we feel like it's about time we master the work-life balance and escape the never-ending Things To Do list...fingers crossed."
Max Osterweis & Erin Beatty, Co-Designers, SUNO
"Mine's super dorky! I want to become certified to teach Gyrotonics! You might have to google that..."—Erin
Max: "Mine is not quite as ambitious. I'd really just like to make time to start running again...it's the little things."—Max
