It’s our last missive of the year.?And like everyone else, we’re thinking about New Years’ resolutions.
So many philosophies about what makes a resolution stick are floating around out there. Some say where you live will determine your success. Others say it comes down to our individual personality or how strong our wills are.
But one study stands out. The American Society of Training and Development (ASTD) did a study on accountability and found that people who committed their goals to friends had a 65% chance of seeing them through. Boost that up to 95% for those who met for “accountability appointments” with their Resolution Keeper.?
This stands as proof that our communities are everything. ? And this year, we dare you to dream a little wilder and reach a little higher. Say YES to that thing you think is impossible. Then breathe life into it knowing you’ve got a community of friends to support you and cheer your endeavor along every step of the way.
Happy New Years, fam.
2019, we’re comin’ for ya.?
With love & mischief,
// Radha + Eli + Team Daybreaker
PS — beginning in January, we’ll be sending Morning Mischief once a month rather than every week. This way we can be even more thoughtful about the vibes, grooves and mischief we love curating for y’all.❤️
[PODCAST] Here’s Why Community is Critical To Your Biz & Life☝️
If your New Years’ resolutions this year involve entrepreneurial endeavors, you’re gonna want to hear this.

Here’s why creating community while building a business or a life absolutely matters.

a glimpse into what we’ve been scheming…
✨ For PHL, imagine: glimmering from 57 stories above our city at One Liberty Observation Deck. Panoramic views, sparkling surprises…
✨For LA, imagine: greeting the New Year while sailing on the high seas at DUSK. Ocean-bound mischief awaits. Come cast away with us and dance aboard a boat…
✨For SF, imagine: a warehouse location where we’ve never danced before, wear sequins and white, bring your resolutions and let’s set the year in motion…
Words From Our Community✨
“287 days ago I decided to stop posting on social media, stop drowning my sorrows with booze and toxic relationships and to try my hand at making room in my life in the hopes that I may work out that whole “adulting” thing.
Ten months later loneliness and constant fear have turned into meaningful relationships with people who inspire me and re-enforced relationships with those who already did.
Can’t say it’s all rainbows and unicorns and to say it was a roller coaster is an understatement… but today I can sit through the dark and know that the light will come back, I’m not afraid of the future I’m actually excited about it. I have no idea where I’m going and I can’t wait to find out.
So thankful for the the love and a special thanks to @dybrkr for letting me get weird and wear wigs and dance myself clean. Happy New Year!!!❤️#floatingnotfalling”

Reset your mind.?
How To “Mini Mind Detox” At The Drop of A Hat
This single habit will start freshening up your mindset.
? Make Negativity A Cue For Positivity: This week, anytime a negative thought comes in your mind, get playful with the “what if” game. If you’re afraid something won’t work out, ask yourself “but what if it does?” If you think you’re not good at something, ask yourself “but what if I actually am?” Spend 30 seconds in that “dream world.”
It is human nature to be hard on ourselves and if a thought doesn’t feel good, it’s likely it’s not even true.✨
This Week’s Intention?
“Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.”
— Harriet Tubman
