Well it's January 9th and I am finally getting around to writing about my 3 words for 2015. I love this exercise and have done it for a few years years now. If you're not familiar with the 3 words concept, it was started by Chris Brogan in 2006, you choose 3 words to help you shape the coming year.
So since I'm already 9 days late writing this I'm sure you're thinking procrastinate is one of my 3 words...nope that one is too easy and hey I don't procrastinate, too much.
Here they are, in no particular order:
1) Gratitude: I chose this word because I need to be more grateful for the wonderful people that I have in my life. I find that at times, especially when I'm a little down, I forget just how lucky I am. So in 2015 I am going to focus on being more grateful and showing more gratitude to the people I love.
2) Present: As in live in the present moment, not the past or the future, live for the now. I have wasted so much of my life worrying about things that have happened in the past that I have no longer have control over. Likewise I've spent a lot of time thinking about the future. For example, tomorrow, next week or next year will be better. No more wasting time, I'm going focus on today, this moment. No more "time travel" as James Altucher puts it.
3) Health: In 2014 I underwent a radical diet change which among other things, forced me to give up my favorite beverage: BEER. Yep, I gave up beer. And lots of other stuff that I absolutely loved. Basically the Doc took away all of my favorite menu items and told me I had to change. It was and has been tough, but it has also been life changing. The process has made me realize that I also need to get healthier in other ways as well.
There you have it my 3 words for 2015.
