The sentiment of turning over a new leaf as the new year begins is one that can be seen as twee and fake.
If you join a gym, you're mocked because you won't keep going. If you start a diet, you're put down because you won't be consistent.
The way I see it, you're worse off if you're the one making fun of those who have the ambition to try to improve themselves. All you're doing is spreading negativity, fostering their will to give up, and solidifying your place in this world as a butthead.
This week on Tito, from the pit of annoyance caused by naysayers, I wanted to celebrate some of our customers that are helping to build new starts and healthier lifestyles:
Aware is an Irish charity that provides information, support, and events to those living with depression and bipolar disorder.
As part of the advocacy and practical aids they provide, they're putting on a series of life skills training sessions across Ireland this month.
Dates: Throughout January
Offline Camp is a organisation that, as their name suggests, celebrates offline-first development.
In preparation for their 4 day retreat in November, they've started the new year by creating a scholarship fund in order to enable a more diverse group of participants.
Woohoo inc is as enthusiastic as it's branded. This year, they'll be hosting the international conference on happiness at work in Copenhagen. All talks and workshops will be presented through English, so non-Danish speakers needn't fret.
The event will take place over two days and promises practicable insights that can be applied the day attendees return to the office.
Dates: May 17th-18th, 2018.
We round up some of our most outstanding customers every Friday. To stay up to date, click here:
