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

3 Words - 2016

It's time to write about my 3 words of 2016. This is always a fun way to start the year and it works better than setting a resolution that you won't follow through on.   Chris Brogan started the 3 words deal back in 2006 . It's easy and it works this way: you choose 3 words to help you shape the coming year. See really easy To review 2015, my words were:  Gratitude Present Health For the most part I did pretty well with these. At times all three of these were a challenge, but that makes this exercise so worthwhile.  And just because I'm moving to three new words by no means am I going to stop focusing on last year's words. Here are my 2016 3 Words , in no particular order: 1) Begin: Get started! Man I come up with lots and lots of ideas, concepts etc, but I never really ever actually do anything about it. This year I am going to BEGIN. I will jump into a few of these ideas and just go and see where it takes me. 2) Question: I'm going

My 3 words for 2013

After reading another fine post from Chris Brogan, who by the way is bringing it post after post these  days  ( http://www.chrisbrogan.com/blog/ ), I  decided to write my first ever 3 words for a new year. Here they are: Nature: get outside and explore. Ride bikes, camp, go to the beach, boat, surf, snowboard. Touch Goats. Enjoy: have fun in the moment, stop worrying about what hasn't happened (and probably won't happen anyway). Completion: follow through on ideas and projects. Complete, execute and then dominate. I am making 2013 awesome and so should you.
