2018: Resolutions worth sticking to…

Tuesday, January 23rd, 2018

Gosh, January is a long month isn’t it?! Just three weeks into 2018, and the twinkle of Christmas lights and the NYE fizz feels like a distant memory. So how are your NY resolutions going?

We’ve already passed the week that 31% of New Years resolutions will fail, so in an effort to make sure ours stick, we invited Openers to shout loud and proud about their best intentions for 2018.

Take a look, hopefully we can offer a sprinkle of inspiration for the weeks and months ahead!

Self improvement?

We’ve got that covered! 2018 will be the year Openers…

“refresh and improve my Spanish”

“learn Italian”

“learn to play the accordion”

“learn how to make ravioli”

“(Re)learn the guitar”

“get this baby out! (literally)”

Maintaining mindfulness?

Us too! We’ll be…

“working smarter, building a good work/life balance”

“taking things slowly and keeping perspective”

Building the world we want to see.

In 2018, our amazing team will make this world a better place by…

“Giving away or selling more stuff than I buy”

“Volunteering at the food bank round the corner from my house”

“Cutting out dairy. Save the cows!”

“Significantly cutting down on the amount of plastic (but also unnecessary packaging and general waste) I use. Recycling isn’t good enough any more!”

“Building this community”

And finally, here’s what we’ll be doing to bring more great thinking for our clients.

“Seeking inspiration from outside of the sector bubble and bringing it in.”

“Cancelling all my charity direct debits and starting again. Using a mix of emotional and rational decision making processes I’ll reassess all my charitable giving to ensure the amount I give reflects the issues I care about and where I think my money can make a real difference (and so that I can look at whether welcome and stewardship actually does the job!)”

Whatever 2018 brings you and your charity – we hope it will be a great one. And at the end of it all, you can look forward to hearing Open’s first accordion concert at the 2018 Christmas party!
