My 3 Words for 2014


What it's Jan. 28 already! I've been meaning to write my 3 words for 2014 for...well about 28 days now.

I love the 3 words for the year initiative. I was introduced to this through Chris Brogan's blog  and I believe he started it.

I did my first one last year. For the most part I was successful, although I could have completed more projects, but hey who can't say that.

So here they are (in no particular order):
Morning by the lakeWrite: I want to write more. I really enjoy writing, but I can always find an excuse not to write. I'm not great at it, yet, (and that may be why I don't do it enough) but the only way to get better is to do it more. So in 2014 I am going be writing more.

Empathy: I have been continually trying to improve in this area. In doing so I have been reading a lot on the subject. This year I want to put it into practice. Although this will take some adjustments in my mindset it will be well worth it.

Positive: Staying positive has been something that I have had a trouble with in the past and the small steps I have taken to be more positive have had a profound effect. A few years back I came up with a plan that would forever alter how I start my work week: 52 Mondays. By making Monday an awesome day, the rest of the week is awesome. I am going to build on that to become more positive not only in the work life, but most importantly at home as well.

There you have it, my 3 words for 2014.

3 Words - 2020

Here they are, my 3 words for 2020. Funny thing I can't find my 3 words from 2019, I know I had them just didn't blog them. Shouldn't have tossed out that post-it note. Oh well on with the present. 2020 3 Words: Resilience -  Resilience is defined as "   the capacity to recover quickly from difficulties; toughness." If  the craziness of 2019 taught me anything it's that I have to be more resilient.  Having endured multiple career setbacks in 2019 it would be easy to just give up, but what fun would that be. 2020 is my year so I'm going to be tough and manage to overcome the difficulties that life throws at me. Plan - I need to make a better effort of creating concrete plans and sticking to them. If the plan doesn't work scrap it and come up with a new one...but plan. For too long I have just shown up and left things to "fate" (more on that for a later post). Stillness - Create more time for meditation, reflection

First bike ride to work of the Year!

What a great day! I rode my bike to work for the first time since Mid November. Wow, I can't belive what I was missing. There is definetly no better way to start your day than taking a 14.8 KM bike ride by the lake. I don't even care that it's raining for the ride home. Doesn't matter. I big shout out to my boy Shawner D. Carl . who has loaned me a brand new Jamis Aurora Elite to ride while he makes me a new single speed mystery machine. Excellent ride, really notice the carbon fork.I was flying, well for first the 5 km's or so and then I started to fade. Time to go put on the Shammy and ride in the rain. Later.
