That’s It, Episode 11: Resolutions

We’re back with the podcast and some New Year’s resolutions

Happy New Year! And welcome back to the podcast. It’s been a while and we’re not making any excuses – best practice among podcasters, we hear – but we are making some resolutions. In this week’s episode of That’s It, I’m sharing sharing 15 of my personal resolutions (with commentary) for 2017. I’ve listed them below for easy reference.

Brian’s 2017 Resolutions

1. Have more patience.

2. Write better. (How’s this?)

3. Always have cash for tipping valets, doormen, et al.

4. Make more time to exercise.

5. Continue to work on empathy.

6. Get serious about finding and training two interns.

7. Do more videos.

8. Be able to solve more than the Monday and Tuesday New York Times crossword puzzles without having to look up an answer.

9. Fill up my notebook with more than just numbers of photo selections.

10. Build the walk-in closet that Robin and I want.

11. Be as focused as I was in 2016 when it comes to the thought and care put into what we publish.

12. Write notes to people that aren’t an email or a text message.

13. Let people know I appreciate what they do.

14. Shake hands.

15. Disconnect more often.

    I have two resolutions, one personal and one sartorial.

    The personal one – treat myself better. Enjoy life and surround myself with great people.

    The sartorial one – more cuffed pants and more ties in my outfits.

    And oh, thanks for a great podcast!

      It’s definitely important to make time for yourself. And good on the cuff. 1.5 – 2″ will do you good. Really appreciate the support!

  • Nathan

    I have three resolutions but I think after reading yours I am adding one…
    – Learn to be a better cook and have more family dinners
    – Make more time for running
    – Read a book every month (I am a slow reader)

    I do like the resolution to always have some cash on hand. Also did you figure out who changed the batteries and turned on the HSS letters?

    • Brian Sacawa

      Those are good ones, Nathan. And, no! No idea how that whole thing happened!

  • RJ Giddings

    Writing more notes…shaking hands…these are great. But disconnecting is the top of my list. I’m staring at the iphone wayyy too much.

    • Brian Sacawa

      You’re not the only one…
