My 3 Words for 2013
I have never been one to make New Year’s resolutions. But last year I did something different after learning about what Chris Brogan does.
I chose three words — Passion, Challenge, Connect — and used them as a way to frame my year. I am doing the same this year.
Follow “it,” whatever “it” is: Dreams, opportunities, success. Don’t let them slip away, never to come back. Keep on track, and do it consistently.
That is pursuit, and that is what I need.
Sometimes, in my personal life, I start a task or project and then I don’t finish it. I get disinterested and move onto the next task or project. I want that behavior to stop.
I want to pick up a task or project and see it to fruition. I want to revel in the feeling of a job done, and done well.
And I also want to demonstrate my commitment to being a better husband, a better friend, a better person.
This word has a couple of meanings, but the one that I’m most interested in is create content. I want to get back to blogging regularly here and at my food blog.
I also want to create works of fiction. In the past, fiction writing has been a very sporadic activity. Now I want it to be something I put more effort into, something that I set aside dedicated time for, even if it’s only every other week.
The same goes for other types of content I want to create: Paintings (acrylics and non), social (Storify) and more.
Bring it, 2013
If I can harness pursuit, commitment and create this year, I know it will be a very good year.
What are your three words for this year?
