  • one of my goals for 2020 is to take control over the opportunities and challenges that I know I can, and not let the things I can’t control get to me.

  • For 2020, I want to start taking more time for myself. I realized that with work becoming more demanding, I am less likely to get to sleep on time, eat healthy and improve my mental health.
    This year, I will get work done and make sure I have enough time left to be emotionally & physically well.

  • My 2020 goal is to focus more on myself professionally. As I am completing my undergrad, preparing for my boards, and looking forward to starting a career as an RN, I want to learn how to have a more assertive and affirmative character. Also, something that’s difficult for me to do is asking for help or accepting help, even when I don’t need it. I feel like by focusing on these aspects of myself, it will prevent me from experiencing burn out as a new grad and improve my overall professional confidence. Thanks Alex and Mike! Love following you guys on insta. Cheers to 2020!

  • Hey guys! My goals for 2020 are to stay more hydrated by drinking tons & tons more water and to also incorporate and stick to a skincare routine. Happy New Year!

  • My 2020 goal will be to enroll in Nursing school (Finally), & focus on self growth; both in health and financially. Cheers to a new decade ❣️🍾

  • Catch some quality zzz’s by turning off my phone an hour before bed and investing it quality bedding, pjs, silk pillow cases etc 🙂

  • Hey Guys! Keep up the great work! My goal for 2020 is to spend more quality time with people. Whether it’s people I’ve known forever or new friends, I hope to really just enjoy the time and moments we all get to share together. There are so many stories to tell, memories to have, fun moments to experience, and things to learn from/with each other! *^_^*

  • My 2020 goal is to utilize my time more efficiently. To spend more time with family and loved ones, and Also to prioritize time for myself for my personal goals to stay happy & healthy ❤️

  • Hey guys! Happy New Year! You guys are truly an inspiration for me. As my goal in 2020, I want to focus on myself through exercise, dieting, and just overall self-care. I want to be the best person I can be, so that I can be the best person possible for my special someone 🙂

  • For 2020, my main goal is to be more socially conscious of my day to day purchases. I have also decided to become a vegetarian. There are so many plant based options now, and it’s produced so much more sustainably than meat.

    Happy new year!! 🎈

  • 2020 is the year of more empathy, more kindness, and more motivation. Leave all negativity – inward negativity towards myself or outward negativity towards others – and replace it with positive thinking. Don’t be afraid to be a bit cheesy with the ones I love and express it without fear of judgment.

    Thank you both for bringing much-needed positivity to many people’s Instagram feeds – looking forward to more inspiration in 2020!

  • One of my biggest 2020 goals is to stop comparing myself to others. It’s unhealthy to judge myself against other unrealistic facades we see all the time via social media.

  • A goal of mine for 2020 is to deeply dive into self care and really make an effort to make myself a priority. Spending a portion of each day doing things that will better myself and make me happy. Things as simple as going to bed early or turning off my phone and get off social media. I have spent so many years putting others first because I never wanted to come off as selfish, but I’ve realized that saying no to plans/invitations and looking out for my own mental health is not selfish.

  • Going into 2020 loving more of me. Self love is something that is so critical but something that can easily be neglected. Being kind to myself, making time for myself, & ultimately allowing myself to flourish and thrive in who I am without fear of rejection from outside influences.

  • 2020 goal is take care of myself more and improve my overall health I always feel selfish saying that but I’m a mom of two little ones, who is working and going to school so I’m exhausted 🤪 such an awesome giveaway!

  • Hey Alex and Mike, always a great read on all your posts. My goal for 2020 is to get back into my fitness routine and to be successful in my first year of graduate school! Keep up the amazing work.

  • 2020 goals- get back into my fitness routine and have much success in my first year of graduate school.- love the posts guys keep it up

  • A goal of mine in 2020 is to find my hobbies again! I’ve been so focused on productivity in the last couple of years and haven’t made much time to do things simply because they bring me joy. This year, I want to re-discover my hobbies and consciously set aside time for them.

  • Always loved following you boys, but don’t why haven’t subscribed until now…!!! 2020 goal is to be more in tune with myself and to take chances even if I don’t have a clear vision of what’s ahead!

  • Hey there!

    You’re a huge inspiration to us, and it’s often that we find ourselves saying “that’s a total Alex and Mike __________.” (insert design trend/outfit) Even our friends have caught on!

    For 2020 we’re looking to be more conscious and take our time. We both lead such active lifestyles that sometimes we just need to take a step back and evaluate the decisions we are making. You can get so caught up in the moment, and we’re total victims! Once we got into the new house, we started what feels like 100 projects. We’ve since toned it back and are focusing on one space a time. It all really stems back to just taking our time and enjoying each other vs constantly being in work/gym mode!


    Alex & Evan

  • Love seeing all of your posts and creative ideas. Such great talent! Two goals of mine for 2020 are waking up everyday with a positive outlook on life and becoming more of a healthy eater and living a very active life.

  • 1. Wake up everyday with a more positive outlook on life
    2. Become a healthier eater and live a very active lifestyle

    Thank you for all the creative ideas and tips!

  • I’m hoping to focus on myself my health and being better not only for myself but for the people around me. Really working this year on my mindfulness and happiness and making it a priority. The past years taught me a lot about making the things that matter a priority and not getting caught up in things that ultimately don’t matter. Very happy and hopeful for this year.
