I am finally getting around to posting my 3 words for 2017. I have been doing this for a few years now and I find it an enjoyable experience. Thinking about the year in terms of words instead of resolutions works better for me. Resolutions seem to be too easy to blow off. The words help me frame the year in an easier way.
Never heard of 3 words? Well it was started by Chris Brogan in 2006.
To help me stay on track I write each word on post it notes for my home office and I write them on my white board for the times I am in the main office.
Here's my 3 words from 2016:
Looking back I could have done a better in all 3 areas, but I did make some head way so that's a good thing.
My 2017 3 words:
Minimize: It's time to start minimizing my life. This applies to all areas; business, personal, home, physical and mental. I have way too much clutter right now. I plan on streamlining everything so that I can live in a more enjoyable state. I am going to focus on living a more minimalist life.
Explore: I am going to look around my surroundings instead of just passing through. I have always been so focused on getting to where I am going I don't always take the time to live in the moment and explore what's around me. This applies to exploring new business opportunities and methods.
Laugh: Wow, I used to laugh a lot. I had a lot of fun in life. Over the years things got more serious and I found myself not having as much fun. Well it's time to stop taking things so seriously and enjoy life to the fullest.
There they are, this year's 3 words.
Did you do 3 words for 2017? I would love hear them.
