Welcome, welcome! 2017 is here and 2016 is gone. Remember Y2K? That was 17 years ago! Incredible.
I’ve never really made resolutions and so, of course, I’ve never kept resolutions. So for 2017, I’m trying something other than resolutions. This year I will be doing something called My Three Words which I believe was started by Chris Brogan. Basically you select three words to guide you over the next 365 days, both in business and home.
Here are my three words:
- Do it now. Last few years have included a lot of preparation and foundation laying. This year will be the year of action. And it needs to be done now. Far too many times I say, “I will do this after I do that” and then I put the task off to a later time and date. Not this year. The time is now.
- Quiet times of reflection and focus have escaped me the past few years. I want to spend time daily in meditation and prayer to make sure my priorities are right. This needs to be a daily activity therefore it needs to be one of my three words.
- I have an extremely blessed life. And I don’t express that enough. This year, I want to make a much better effort to express my gratitude to those around me. The more grateful you are, the less you need.
What are your three words?
