Welcome, 2010

Here we go again, another year to look forward to.  There are a lot of life lessons I think we can take from the last year (well, maybe the last 2 years):

  1. Take everything one day at a time.
    If it’s a good day, enjoy it.  You never know what is going to be around the corner.
  2. Appreciate what you’ve got.
    You’ve been forced to spend time at home with your family and friends – and you’ve realized that it wasn’t so bad.
  3. You’ve got to still dream big.
    Dust yourself off and keep pursuing that goal that you’ve been wanting to accomplish.  Great things happen in times of turmoil.
  4. Look good with less.
    Hey, this is still a style magazine, right?  Find that timeless style that doesn’t break the bank.  We’ll help you get there.
  5. Make a plan.
    It’s hard to stay focused when things come at you throughout the year.  Start with the end in mind and make yourself a list of things you want to accomplish – and don’t forget about item #3 on this list.

Here’s to an awesome year living in style.  Cheers.

To create Essential Style for Men, mix 2 parts petrol, 1 part secret agent, 1 part rock and roll, 1 part hip-hop and a shot of tequila in a shaker with ice and vigorously shake for 20 seconds. Pour into a martini glass rimmed with explosives and have a supermodel serve for all your friends to enjoy.
