What makes GetKnit…GetKnit?

We are currently in an ongoing series that is unpacking GetKnit’s principles.  A few weeks back we started with our first principle: “Live large and tread fully on our surroundings”.  If you missed that post, you can get caught up-to-speed by clicking here.  This week we’re going to take a closer look at our second principle:

“Inspire our community to get out and explore”

At GetKnit, we understand that life is busy and it’s easy to fall into the routine of life.  Between demands at work, commitments at home, and the daily to-do’s, when you do have a free moment the desire for the norm can seem like the most comfortable option.  But as wiser people than us have said “Don’t let your life goals fall victim to the allure of comfortable routines.”

Our second principle of inspiring our participants to get out and explore is our way of helping them to fight the normal routines of life and intentionally seek out opportunities to live life to the fullest.  We do this by trying to offer a wide variety of events that give participants an accessible way to try new flavors, explore new areas, try out new skills, and soak in an array of experiences.  From trying a new beer on one of our beer-ventures, learning a new skill in one of our Arts and Ales classes, stepping outside of your comfort zone and going on one of our bucket list adventure trips, or exploring a new region on one of our sightseeing day trips – we want to be an outlet that plugs our guests into the amazing city, community, and opportunities that surround us everyday.

No matter if it’s on one of our Get-togethers or on an adventure all your own, we hope to inspire our community to live with a zeal for life and embrace the many chances to ‘live large’ that surround us each day.  So what does that look like for you today?  It could be as big as booking that ticket, to as simple as trying that new restaurant down the street.  No matter the form – we encourage you to get out and explore!

“To live is the rarest thing in the world.  Most people just exist.” – Oliver Wilde
