I’m a serial goal setter. I love it. It’s makes me happy to write things down that I want to go and do. Over the last few years instead of creating a New Years Resolution I have practiced something called Three Words. I decide on three words and they become a theme for my efforts in the year to come. I post the words on my computer and by seeing and reading them each day they become a part of my life. I can begin projects, create tasks, and write to-do lists around my words. Or I can just use them as guiding principles. At the end of the year I am able to look back and see how my words helped to shape the past year.
I mentioned last week that I didn’t do my Three Words post for 2014. I’m kind of regretting that today. I had a really great year but I don’t know for sure if it was aligned with my intentions. Heck, I don’t even know what my intentions were. But that’s okay. Because today I’m looking ahead, not behind.
My three words for 2015Align ♦ Simplify ♦ Partner
Align – This is a reminder to take on only the projects, people, and ideas that are in line with my values, beliefs, and goals. I often say yes to things for the wrong reasons. No, thank you needs to get back into my vocabulary this year.
Simplify – I’m using this to help me choose the path of least resistance when making decisions. I’m also going to simplify how I get things done so I’m spending less time on the process and more on what really matters.
Partner – I want to bring people and things together. I am creating a new group program in 2015 and partnering with like-minded health professionals and health-oriented businesses. I also want to be a better partner in my relationships.
So that’s it. Once again, wish me luck!
And of course I would love to know your intentions for the year…what are your three words for 2015? Please share!
