Happy Monday! Get energized with these motivating quizzes.

It’s bright and early on Monday morning (at least in my neck of the woods), and if you’re anything like me, you may need some Monday motivation. Mondays are always tough for me… it’s hard to get up to weekday speed after a relaxing weekend. Some quizzes (and coffee) always help though.

Take one or more of these quizzes if you need a little extra motivation this Monday!

What Kind of Coffee Are You?
– First things first, if it’s Monday morning I need my coffee. Is this also part of your Monday morning routine? If so, take this fun java based quiz to learn more about your coffee personality!

What’s Your Happy Song?
– Now that we’ve got our caffeine covered, it’s time to talk tunes. Nothing gets me motivated on a Monday morning like some good music. Take this quiz to learn your happy song, and don’t be afraid to crank it up to 11 😉

Where Do You Think Best?
– One of my biggest problems on Monday mornings is that it’s hard to get my brain booted up. My thinking can be cloudy and slow on Mondays, and sometimes having the right atmosphere can really get me motivated. Does this strategy work for you as well? Find out with this quiz, which will tell you where you think best. Maybe you need a change of scenery to get that Monday motivation flowing!

What’s Your Color Code?
– For me, hard days are all about embracing who I am and what works for me. For example, I’m Red! That means I’m the type of person who needs to-do lists, but I also need to see them as totally optional. What about you? This color code quiz will give you a quick overview of your strengths so you can play them up this Monday… and for days to come!

How Should You Change The World?
– I’ll be honest… sometimes I am just not in the mood for some deep thinking on a Monday. But at the same time, an important reason for doing what I’m doing can really get me motivated. Whether it’s a life’s purpose or a big goal, I need to see the big picture. This quiz can help me do that, and I hope you find it to be a catalyst for you today.

Are You Book Smart or Street Smart?
– Now that you know your Color Code and how you want to change the world, you may be motivated to get started. This is a good time to remind yourself whether you’ve got book smarts, street smarts … or maybe both. Because while it may be time for some people to hit the books, others of us may need to hit the streets to get things done.

When Do You Shine?
– If Monday mornings seem exceptionally painful for you, then there’s a chance that you just aren’t a morning person. For many years in my life, I was not a morning person… so it just benefited me to skip Monday mornings entirely (but at the same time burn some midnight oil instead). Take this quiz to see what time of day is your most productive.


Quiz: What Language Should You Learn?

What language should you learn next?

Do you speak any languages other than English? I know at least a few of you do. Growing up, I was always fascinated by foreign languages. I speak a little of some languages – French and Spanish primarily. I understand a bit of a few like Norwegian and German as well 🙂 If I was independently wealthy, I could imagine devoting a life to learning so many languages. I find them to be so interesting!

Even though I’m not technically fluent in any of the languages I know, I’m always on the lookout for a new language to learn. I’m addicted to learning bit and pieces of languages, especially those similar to the ones I know already. I get a big kick out of seeing how Italian relates to French or how Portuguese relates to Spanish. I admit that I’m such a geek about this. Languages are a great way to travel without leaving your house, and it’s easier than ever to pick up a few words of something now that the internet is around.

Are you like me and eager to learn new languages? You might appreciate my quiz: What Language Should You Learn? Let me know below what you get on this one and what you think about learning languages.

Quiz: How Should You Change The World?

How you change the world?

Do you ever feel like you want to change the world? I think many people feel driven to change the world when they’re young, but as they get older, the drive goes away. Changing the world in a big way is tough, and it takes a certain type of person to keep at it and not get discouraged. I admire people who put it all out there for a cause they believe in and never give up the fight. If you’re one of those who is changing the world in a big way (or even just trying to), my hat’s off to you 🙂

Even if you don’t want to change the world in a big way, I believe we all change the world in small ways. I think we are all interconnected, and our small actions have a much bigger ripple effect than a lot of us realize. So if you’re kind to a stranger or working quietly on an important small project, I believe you are changing the world. Little actions add up to big actions, and you are probably more of a role model for those around you than you realize.

So when I wrote How Should You Change The World?, I meant it as a quiz for everyone. Because we all change the world – whether we are simply kind to our neighbors or invent the next Facebook. I believe that the small contributions to the world go unjustly unnoticed, and I wanted to write a quiz to celebrate that a bit. You don’t have to “go big or go home” just to make a difference.

Please take How Should You Change The World?, and let me know what you get. Also, I’d love to know what you think about changing the world in small ways. Do you think it’s possible? Is there anything you do on a small scale to make the world a better place?


Quiz: What New Year’s Resolution Should You Make?

2013 in celebratory letters

Awwww…. yeah! Happy 2013!!! Who’s excited that we’re finally here? I know I am. The world didn’t end, and I’m ready to kick butt in 2013 😉

As I mentioned before, I am not really one for specific new year’s resolutions. And from what everyone else reading this blog says, they agree. I personally feel like resolutions are too inflexible and set me up for failure. Do you agree? I do like to set the tone for each year, as I feel it to at least be helpful for getting back to work once the holidays are over 🙂

So for me, I feel like 2013 is going to be a year of doing a good amount of work (Blogthings!), fixing up the house, saving money, deepening friendships, and eating more fruits and veggies. No resolutions, but I know what I’m working on and prioritizing. Are you the same way?

For me, the quiz What New Year’s Resolution Should You Make? is still useful. It actually reminds me what may be missing in my 2013 plans (travel!) and helps me find some balance. (In previous years I got that I should reduce stress, which was true at the time.) I’m the type of person who would work all the time if I could. Luckily I have a result like this to remind me of the bigger picture and balance. I love to work, but I have to remember why I do it… to produce, create, have fun, and live my life to the fullest.

Take What New Year’s Resolution Should You Make?, and let me know what you get. Even if you don’t resolve to do whatever your result says, I’m curious to know how spot on it is for you. What do you think 2013 has in store for you? What little tweak could you make to improve your life?

Quiz: What Language Are You?


Have you ever dreamed of learning a foreign language? If you are like most people, there’s a language or two that you wish in your heart that you spoke better. For me, so many languages quality – I collect foreign languages, which is a lot of fun. However, I don’t speak any of them well 🙂 I guess if I listened to my heart, the language I’d really like to speak better is French.

There’s something magical about a language we weren’t born knowing. Everything sounds a little more poetic or a little more interesting. Do you agree? Even if you don’t speak any languages other than English, I bet there’s a foreign language that you love to listen to. Of course, I love to listen to French, but I also think Italian is equally beautiful – maybe more so because I understand less of it, haha.

I am trying to have more foreign language in my life these days, without putting pressure on myself to become fluent in any particular language. So for me, this may simply mean watching more foreign films (can’t get enough of French comedies). Who knows what else? It may also mean watching foreign news (with subtitles of course). It could even mean some foreign travel… now that one sounds nice!

To learn what language is most like your personality, take my latest quiz: What Language Are You? This isn’t about what language you should learn, but you may want to learn the language you get anyway! This quiz may inspire you to learn a whole new language… or simply travel to a new country.

Take What Language Are You?, and let me know what you get on this quiz. Did you get a favorite foreign language? If not, which foreign language do you love the most? Comment below and let me know.
