Bulldog Drummond Practicing Uncommon Sense

We’re a team of business leaders, design thinkers, writers and brand strategists committed to doing things in uncommon ways. We’re curious about the people and places around us and fascinated by the search for what’s next. 

We can’t always control the circumstances that surround our days, but we do get to choose how we show up to live each day. We subscribe to the notion that every day is a gift, an opportunity to make it the best it can be. That’s why we wanted to share a collection of thoughts that help inspire us to make each day the Best Day Ever.

1. Intrigue crafts intelligence
Being the dumb one in the room can often lead to the most interesting finding, so stop and grasp the inspiration that surrounds you. Ask why and how. You’ll be amazed with the results.

2. Follow your curiosity
Replace the fear of the unknown with curiosity and see where you land.

3. Work like a captain, play like a pirate
Play is just as important as work. So say yes to happy hour, and remember it’s imperative to indulge now and again.

4. Live your life the way you want it—not the way everyone else wants you to
How can you love your life if you’re living it for someone else? You were born to stand out, not to fit in. Ask yourself, what do you want to do today?

5. If you can’t see the bright side of life, polish the dull side
We all have our days. Flat tire. Phone smashes. Speeding ticket. Life happens and can sometimes get the best of us. It’s up to you to look at the cup half empty or half full.

6. Positive minds live positive lives
Just like you are what you eat, what you think and surround yourself with consumes you. So consume positivity, embrace life, be that person you want to be.

7. It’s a good day to have a good day
Waking up every morning with a smile on your face and a fresh outlook on life is priceless. So remember—today is a good day to have a good day.

8. Live your dream
If your life stopped tomorrow, you’d be bummed you didn’t do those things on your bucket list. So get out. Enjoy life. Live your dream.

9. Your purpose is to create one
Today is the day. Take ten minutes to stop, unplug, and reflect. What is it that you really want out of life? What makes you tick? Once you know your purpose, every day is the best day ever.

10. Doors lead to new places
Change is scary. So is idleness. You know what they say—all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. It’s up to you to open those doors and let opportunities in.
