2019 – One Word
WELCOME TO A NEW YEAR
2019! A new day, a new you. Happy New Year everyone!
Why I am not setting goals or New Year Resolutions for 2019?
Most people in the world have started the year with a resolve to make changes via New Year Resolutions and/or set goals to achieve this year. I have tried this for decades and it didn’t work out the way I had hoped.
Instead, I chose a one-word intention to serve as my “North Star” for the upcoming year. There is nothing magical around the exercise. It simply serves as a declaration of the future I intend to create.
My 2019 word is: BECOMING
I am choosing who I will become and setting habits of what I believe that person would do on a regular basis.
For example, I want to become a better husband, so I added: “Date Night”, “Wash Dishes”, and “Cook” on my habit tracker.
I want to become a better father, so I added: “Take Kids to School”, “Family Adventure Days”, and “Photo-Journal”.
I want to become healthier, so I added: “Early Rise”, “Walk/Run”, “Push-Ups”.
I want to become a life-long learner, so I added: “Read”, “Write”, and Examen”.
Love to hear what your Resolutions, Goals or One Word is for this year!
