The last couple years I have thrown New Year’s Resolutions out the window. Instead, I’ve been choosing a word(s) for the year thanks to this post I read a few years ago.
Some people have said only choose one word, a few others have said to choose up to three words but no more than that. I go with whatever pops out at me, tugs at my heart and just sort of ‘calls’ to me.
2014 Theme (Words)
They didn’t really have a lot to do with business but when those three things were focused on all year, I did a lot of growing (in my personal life) and when I went through all the changes I did, it was hard for that to not roll over into my biz life too. So in a way they did affect my biz life too – in a good way.
My 2015 Theme
I knew that I wanted to focus on a theme for this year too. I didn’t want to go back to resolutions that I never follow through on anyway. And I’m really happy with the way choose the theme (words) went last year. All in all it was a success – I’m pleased with the growth I made.
Anyways, this year I went through the same process. Looking at the list of words I went with the ones that ‘called out to me’ and I’m looking forward to seeing how these play out in my life.
This is going to be a big year for me. Next month I hit the big 4-0! Yep, I’m turning 40…and I’ve heard that the 40s have been the best years of a lot of people’s lives so I’m excited to hit this milestone. And I’m looking forward to my theme (words) this year!
What about you – did you set a resolution or pick a word? I’d love to hear about it. Leave a comment below!
