Watching the Today Show on January 1, I was fascinated to find an author, Jon Gordon, touting an alternative to the New Year’s resolutions that I, along with many others, annually make and rarely keep.
Although you can buy his book at Amazon (I haven’t yet, but might later), he explained his ‘one word’ premise – I’ve inserted a link to a free copy of a worksheet (not the book) that will help you choose your one word and get on with your new year. He also encourages us to make our own “One Word” poster.
I chose CREATE as my one word for 2014.
Bring something into existence, produce, generate, make, fabricate, fashion, build, construct, establish, initiate, launch, develop…
I like this new approach to a new year more than making a lengthy resolutions. Rather than resurrecting that old list of Must Dos and Must Don’ts, that hasn’t changed much in many years, I chose one word, an active verb, that encourages me to Create the life I want in 2014. The possibilities are endless.
Although Gordon encourages us to make our poster from his website’s free downloadable templates, I made my own using using PowerPoint and a sunrise photo I took a few years back that I am particularly fond of.
It will be in the center of the 2014 Vision Board I’m working on this week.
