3 Words for 2022

3 words

I don't bother with New Year resolutions. But I do like to choose 3 words for the year to follow. This is an exercise that was developed by Chris Brogan back some time ago. It is a wonderful thing to go through. I typically start out with a list of 10-20 words and then think about each one and then whittle the list down until I get my words.


Here they are - 3 words for 2022

Lead - for the first time in my career I have the opportunity to lead a small team. This is also I great time for me to use my expertise and be a leader not a follower. It's time and I'm ready.

Explore - use my curiosity to do and look in to things that I have wanted to do but haven't for whatever reason. Find new things/ hobbies that I may be interested. Take more chances - business, finances, life...

Motion - keep moving. I'm applying this to my body - exercise get back in shape. Also to life in general, no more sitting around and waiting for things to come to me. 


There they are. It's now time for me to live them (and make my sticky note). Haven't tried 3 words yet? Give it a try.

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.
