I need a slogan

Recently, I felt like I was at a crossroads in my life, not knowing which way to turn, or if stopping and staying put was the better choice. I had lost direction; I had lost my focus; I had lost the willpower to check my zipper before going out in public.

I figured what I needed was a slogan!

But you can't just adopt ANY slogan as your own. Some are already taken. Oprah, for example, uses "Live Your Best Life." Elizabeth Potts Weinstein chants "Live Your Truth." Hugh MacLeod draws on "Remember Who You Are." And I'm sure if Tiger Woods had one it would be "Let's Just Do It, But Keep It A Secret, Ok?"

So, knowing that I needed a slogan to get me going in the right direction again, I came up with one that I think fits me quite nicely:

"Let's Get Stinky!"

I think it's a great slogan, but I'm sure you're wondering what the hell it means.

Well, when a person is working hard at what they love, they sweat. A body covered with sweat stinks. So, "Let's Get Stinky" could be a call to action to work your hardest at what you want in order to achieve your goal.

It could also be a pickup line in a bar, as in, "Hey, babe. Let's Get Stinky," but I'm not sure how useful it would be.

Anyways, that's my slogan and I'm gonna stinkin' stick with it. I'm working hard to achieve my goals, I'm working up a sweat to be the person I want to be, and if I get a little stinky along the way, then I must be doing something right.

So "Let's Get Stinky," and make tomorrow a better day!
