Last year my 3 words were Explore, Minimize and Laugh. I would say I was mildly successful with these words. I did a lot of exploring, especially at my new place in Prince Edward County. I did begin to minimize, especially with my closet and I had a ton of laughs throughout the year. That being said 2017 turned out to be a somewhat challenging year due to forces beyond my control. It forced me to change course when I wasn't fully ready for it. With this mind, my 3 words for 2018 reflect part of what I had to go through and how I can better prepare myself for the future.
After much thought and quick note taking, I was able to come up with my 3 words for 2018:
Bulid: As I mentioned 2017 threw me a few curve balls but also left me with tremendous opportunity. Build represents taking the steps to build my business, my network and my relationships.
Adjust: Well things don't always (or ever) go as planned. So instead of wallowing in what could've been, in 2018 I'm going to adjust instead and make the necessary changes to stay on track and have the best year ever.
Challenge: I am going to challenge the status quo, the norms and most of all myself. It's time to get out of my comfort zone and step up to the challenge that I have in front of me.
There they are, my 3 words for 2018.
Do you come up with 3 words each year? Or do you have another New Year ritual? I would love to hear about what you do.
