Do you have a Word for the Year?

Are you the type of person who always chooses a Word for the Year?

Or maybe you’re not exactly sure what all the hype is about?

Why does it seem like everyone is suddenly talking about ‘their word’?

How did they choose one word?

After years of choosing a personal word of the year, I can say with complete confidence that it’s an exercise worth exploring.

The process of choosing a word helps you focus on the goals and actions you want to work on for the next year.

Whether you work on one life area or several, having that common word to weave the parts of your life together really does help you focus and pay attention to how everything relates to the other parts.

Steps for choosing your best word of the year:

List the things you want to focus on this year.

Determine the common theme[s] of your list.

List some words that would work.

Decide which of the words on your list feels like it will be the MOST motivational.

Once you’ve gone through the process of choosing your personal word of the year, you can then set your priorities and goals with that word in mind.
