We are all inundated with year end countdowns, best of lists, and articles about resolutions for the new year ahead. This time of year always has me reflecting on my life, my relationships, and my work. What do I want to focus on? Where could I be more or do better? I implement a couple of strategies to help in making my resolutions stick a little better and stay with me. One is that I have a public resolution that is reflected in a single word. You may have heard about this from various hashtags on social media, #oneword2018, or associated with a couple of different books out there. In short, it is a movement to consolidate your long list of resolutions into one simple word and to look back throughout the year to this one word to remind you of your resolution.
How will you approach the new year? Do you set resolutions to guide your path in the new year? Is this a time you use to reflect? I'd love to hear more in the comments!
Happy New Year!
