Agency New Year’s Resolutions
It’s that time when we reflect on our actions of the past year, and look forward to what we can change for the better in the future. Working at an agency can enable your bad habits; you treat it like an extension of your home. This year I would like to pretend I can actually change some of the bad habits I have developed in my time at Pulp & Fiber and Community Agency.
1. Keep a clean fridge
I live by one rule when it comes to food: “Better to have too much, than too little”. This would work fine if I followed it up with a second cliché rule of “Waste not, want not”, but that’s not always the case. I think saving that last 1/8 of a California sandwich will come in handy at some point, but somewhere between putting it in the fridge and peeling it off the shelf a month later is where I need to be in 2014.
2. Get the record for most consecutive baskets
Upstairs in the Pulp & Fiber office, they love to introduce new games and competition. I rarely venture up there, but earlier this week I discovered a chain link mesh basketball net had been mounted (’cause we keep it mad street in here). The current record of consecutive baskets sunk is 30. I want that new record.
3. Beat Jesse at Ping Pong
Our Director of Sales, Partner, and resident Ping Pong savant Jesse Carrere is a beast with the paddles. Come watch him play if you don’t believe me. His delicate wrists and fancy footwork make watching a match of ping pong akin to watching the National Ballet. I mean that in the most masculine way possible.
4. Eat fewer snacks that are left on my desk
General good fitness isn’t enough at this office, especially at my desk. Whenever the staff on our floor are treated with delicious snacks (which is often) they land right at the end of my desk. Better self control is the more general resolution, but it starts at the work place.
5. 2 cups of coffee a day max
I love coffee, but the feeling that I need to be constantly drinking it while at my desk has become a problem. Mostly for the caffeine induced 4:00 p.m. anxiety attacks. That one should be easy. I just need to remember that I don’t like feeling crazy when I’m thinking about making my 4th cup.
To all agency people: What do you need to change about your office habits in 2014? Leave a comment to let us know!
