Lululemon Manifesto:Aspire-ations

 If you would rather read in a more linear fashion, you can see it here

Two of my favorite suggestions from the manifesto are:

 Dance, sing, floss and travel.

Aren't you excited when you get to see new places and cultures? Don't you feel proud when you remove particles from your teeth? And speaking of dancing, have you tried the Just Dance game(probably not the actual title) on Wii? It's awesome!

Write down your short and long-term GOALS . Two personal, two business and two health goals for the next 1, 5 and 10 years.

This is huge in the company's culture. I interviewed for a part time position there (which I am still nursing a wound from not getting-I didn't realize my graduate degree didn't qualify me to hang sports bras in an aesthetic manner) . Regardless, I still love the message and culture Lululemon embodies. I saw something similar in one of my SELF magazines a couple years ago and cut it out to glue into my journal. It really helped me to focus on getting where I wanted to be. I set a goal to be a homeowner in five years but just sitting down and coming up with that goal put it at the forefront of my mind and we bought our own place within the year! Ok, that goal might have been pushed to the front of the list because we were living in a school with 20+ teenaged girls to look after, just saying.

Anyway, this is nice, concise list of little tidbits of things to aspire to (which are cutely placed on all of their reusable bags) .  I have exercise on my mind after my first long-ish run in months last night and the resulting sore legs today. I still wish, though, that some of those New Years resolution folks would give up, already, and leave some space in my gym classes....
