Focusing on one word throughout the year to help you make choices and decisions takes a different approach than setting unrealistic or unreachable goals.
It brings a healthier approach to living your life differently versus trying to live a different life.
I love this idea, but I can't choose just one word. However, my three words are all sort of related:
Play. (Because I want to spend every moment I have actually playing with my 19 month old on his level.)
Focus. (Because I realize I need to prioritize in order to get things done.)
And Know Why. (Because I can't do it all so I need to keep a narrow focus on priorities and know why I'm doing it all... For what purpose.)
So instead of making a resolution that you may or may not end up keeping, what one word (or three words) would you choose for this upcoming year?
