Matt Gross: Resolution Expert!

January 5th, 2011  |  by  |  Published in Uncategorized


Matt Gross–cheap traveler, hipster douchebag, loving father and husband, and now, a new role: arch-prognosticator.

Matt recently appeared in a video over at DadLabs as part of a panel of “New Year’s Resolution Experts.” Experts! Do they have degrees in New Year’s resolutions perchance? Or are they just good at resolving to lose weight and work out more? Or is it, like all his fellow experts, that Matt has a nicely maintained beard? Maybe it’s all of the above.

Now, far be it for me to try to describe all the great wisdom conveyed in this lovely feature. Check it out yourself, and if you’re motivated, register your formal complaints with the Dadlabs boys.

But I will give you a bit of the DadWagon flavor contributed by Matt, who seemed to express the sentiments of all of us here with this tidbit of resolution advice:

The easiest best thing to do is always to resolve to do things that you’re going to do already. Why exert yourself? Fatherhood is difficult enough already. Why make it harder on yourself by spending the first six to nine months of the year feeling like there’s something that you should be doing because you promised yourself and your family that you’d be a better dad.

Sagacious, baby.
