Today’s Goal: Be 1% Better Than Yesterday
 
Greetings, Ninja!

Happy 2018! If we were gambling Ninjas, we’d wager you’ve already set a few personal goals. You’re naturally ambitious, and your role as an Office Ninja has stoked your passion for self-improvement!

So, go ahead and ride the momentum of the New Year! But remember, you don’t have to completely overhaul your life to make meaningful changes. Think of it this way: if you upped your game by just 1% every day, you’d end up 37 times better at the end of the year.

And "better" doesn’t necessarily mean a higher paying job or a faster marathon time (though we admire those goals, for sure). In fact, just being a little bit kinder in your day-to-day life improves the world around you AND your own mental and physical health. Go ahead and give it a shot!

This year is yours for the taking, Ninja. We’ll be cheering for ya!

Rock on!
