New Year Resolution Or New Bs?
Did you woke up on december 31st feeling like it was time for a new year resolution? Some changes needed to be done? Will you do them for real or victim to yourself?
No matter how many times you will deny this, when january 1st shows up, its that time of the year where we think about all the things we want to change. Unfortunately, when the New Year, New Mehype is gone, the resolution is gone too.
Turn A New Year Resolution To A New Year Destination
Dont get me wrong, changes are healthy and necessary for growth in life. What irritates me is when nothing has been done since the time the quote on quote resolution has been made.
Facebook statuses are flowing with catchy phrases like «New Year, New Me», «This Year I Will…» and the list goes on until your feed cant take it anymore.
My Own New Year Resolution
This year, my own resolution was quite simple : help as much people as I can with 1 single article. I’ve decided to start the year with a statement like «F””ck A Resolution» and provide our readers with a list of 5 ways they can improve their life today (because tomorrow is already too late)
1 Start A New Project
As catchy as it sounds, my questions to you are : Do you have a passion? Do you want to start a new business? Do you want your A25 tickets to stop piling up? It all starts with 3 things : a detailed plan, self-discipline and the right motivation.
The best thing to do at first is to write EVERYTHING down so you have a clear idea of what you want to do and how you will do it. Write your goal on top of a sheet and write down 10 steps to achieve it and for each step you can also add substeps as you wish. Set a realistic deadline, update your gameplan through the process and keep track of your progress(easier said than done but you”ll make it).
What really works for me is a dose of motivationnal speeches when I wake up and a another dose when im about to sleep. The list can go on and on from Nino Brown,Tony Robbins or Gary Vaynerchuk. Self Talks during the day also until you get the habit of being upbeat and motivated.
Only lord knows how many times I repeated “Just Do It” in my head (Thank you Nike)
One simple quote I learned from the one and only Brian Tracy : “Do the things you should do whether you feel like it or not”. Write your important tasks down, use an app, reminders, post-its; everything that allows to go through day effectively is worth it.
2 Losin Weight
In 2016, being a “gym a rat” and “do you even lift?” were the cool things to say or to be and we all know what happens when something becomes trendy! Some people will do it because they enjoy it and others will do it to try to keep up with the trend(we all been there at least one time).
The best way to be consistent with your weight loss, in my opinion, is to participate in group training sessions or at least with a partner or a coach. In a group training, your coach monitors your progress, you get motivatd by your peers and the average 150$ it costs to sign up will make you think twice before skipping a workout( Econofitness or Buzzfit can still save your life)
3 Step Out Of Your Comfort Zone
The reason why some of us dont really get much done when it comes to our resolutions is because it requires us to move out of our comfort zone so much at times. Experiencing new things, visiting new places and meeting new people allow you to discover yourself and the world around you.
Each year, I write myself what I call a “weird list” in which I add 10 things to do for the year that will totally embarass me or force me out of my comfort zone.
My suggestion is to add stuff that are not too extreme or not too dangerous but it has to be challenging enough to make you face your inner fears like never before!(If you wrote bungee in your personal list lets do it together)
To conclude on a more realistic note, I would like to add that no where in this article I mentionned that that it was easy to take action but you will be
Let me to know how do you feel about those 3 ways to change life today article or if you have more tips that I forgot. I challenge you to come back to this article 1 year after and tell us what you have accomplish!
PS: F**ck A Resolution

The End Of An Era And A New Start: Dress To Kill Magazine Goes Digital
A New World Order
I hate to break it down to you so abruptly but the world is changing, the world as we knew it, the way we consume, the way we think and even that good old Dress To Kill magazine is going through it.
As a young and inexperienced blogger back in 2016, I felt deep in my earth that paper was a dying medium and that the internet was about to carry the torch.
a hundreds of blog posts later, multiple attempts at building an online presence and literally trying to digitize the aesthetics & creativity I saw in magazines growing up.
I must admit 2 things: 1. what it takes to make fashion or information enjoyable is very hard to put together and 2 building an audience on or offline is a GREAT feat.
I grew to admire and respect my peers in traditional media because they made the most out of nothing at a time where Facebook and all those outlets were not a thing.
In case you didn’t know, Dress To Kill magazine is not your average magazine by any shape or form.
Promoting Canadian art and fashion from province to province was something seemingly unthinkable but they got it done.
From iconic covers with Lenny Kravitz and more iconic nights at le Mount Stephen to bring the whole industry under the same roof, DTK got it done.
Don’t take what I’m saying as a farewell note because today actually mark a rebirth for the publication.
Indeed, while the world was going all over the place, they went on a well thought out rebrand.
As you might have guessed, the biggest take away from this is the stoppage of the paper version of the magazine.
The focus is now digital but as I told you earlier, DTK doesn’t go halfway.
Their new platform will include an online boutique which once again is going to focus on shedding light on Canadian creators for men and women.
Do you think more magazines are going to make a full transition to digital?

We Ask A Personal Development Coach How To Overcome The Ins and Outs Of The Crisis
It’s all about your point of view
Everything You Need to Know Through The Lens Of A Personal Development Coach
I’m always amazed at how people like to stigmatize the role or relevance of a personal development coach. They’re quick to label it a scam, a fad, something based on nothing but little they did know, they’re coaches around the world who impacts millions and millions of people in a life changing way. I was looking for the equivalent of a Tony Robbins in Quebec, my research undoubtedly came back to the same name: Marc Dumaine.
Mr Dumaine is more than a personal development coach, he’s a man with a story.
Not your average story either. From overcoming alcohol and drug abuse to obtaining a MBA to running campaigns for some of the biggest corporations in this province. Here’s a man of many battles.
Honorable mention too, these days Marc is focused on creating an international platform to impact as many people he possibly can.
The bottom line is this. This personal development coach is not unfamiliar with trials and tribulations, changes and transitions.
That’s why to me, in a time like this where everything is doing a 180 degree, I had to pick his brain and ask him how can you and I get over.
In this Q&A, we indeed ask Marc Dumaine about several things such as how to bounce back from the crisis, his keys to success and much more.
QUESTIONS FOR MARC DUMAINE
#1 How did you figure yourself out as a future entrepreneur and what was the key factor that made you take that route?
I was always an artist at heart and found that I didn’t it in any mole. After completing my MBA, I realized that my biggest assets were my differences. I decided at that moment to stop following what people expected from me and launched my own business. To me being an entrepreneur is an art form in itself. I have never regretted that choice since I launched Asana Coaching 10 years ago.
#2 How can someone go from being self-employed to an entrepreneur making money without physically being there?
The internet is booming with opportunities right now ! Even with the COVID-19, there is a redefinition of the way people consume products and services ! It is a TIME for being creative and look into endless opportunities ! Get out of our comfort zone and start being inspired by people who are already doing it ! Then, build yourself a right game plan with an amazing branding, and you are all set for the best adventure of your life.
If you’re interested in seeing him in action, he’s doing a Facebook live tonight at 7:30 pm and if you’re looking for some light in these dark times, that’s the place to be.
