It’s goal time again! Last year around this time I wrote about an idea I had read about on Chris Brogan’ s blog where Chris suggested that you chose one word that embodies the intention of your goal. So instead of lengthy resolutions you have to remember just 3 words. Well, it’s a year later and before we claim our three words for this year I would like to know how you did on last year’s words?
It’s always a great idea to look back and evaluate what worked and give yourself a pat on the back when you accomplished your intention.
In 2009 my words were-Quality-Energy-Fun-
Looking back at my 2009 words:
Quality: I stopped buying junk food and focused on lots of fruits, vegetables, nuts and salmon and…yes, I discovered COSTCO. I actually I now look forward to going grocery shopping.
Energy: I cut out the Hoovers in my life and with all the extra time I saved, I decided to join and get active in a breakfast club, TPG, where I continue to meet accomplished, energizing women. The “early” breakfast thing has been a little challenging, since I have to get up at 5 am to make the meetings. Once I am there though, I am glad I made the effort. Where we put our energy is where we grow equity.
Fun has always been a huge part of my everyday life. I wake up happy and fun just seems to find me. But this year something happened that changed the way I have fun… Ben and Sarah had twins. Honestly, the thought of becoming a grandma was not high on my “fun” list. I’m too young to be a grandma- right? Little did I know how much FUN these babies were going to be. Now I get to play with toys. ‘Gotta love that Baby Einstein.
Moving on…my 2010 words:
Process: This is the year I put some systems into place and to actually do the processes that I have already created. I need to make my travel schedule more manageable.
Deliver: I am committed to deliver: That means more blogging, sending notes, writing articles, doing the work and the necessary research to give clients the most up to date programs that are relevant to their unique needs. Deliver also means delivering on personal commitments-like flying to Cleveland more to be with my dad.
Authenticity: Being true to myself. I am going to stop doing the things that do not interest me, and connect more to the people and the activities and opportunities in which I have shared values.
Please share your three words.
