Recently, I came across the book One Word That Will Change Your Life. Honestly, I don’t know how; but, since that day, I have seen this concept on some many other websites. I became intrigued by the concept, so I purchased the book.
But wait, let’s backtrack and start with the concept. There are some people who believe instead of making New Year’s resolution(s) and/or setting goals, you should select one word as a theme for the upcoming year. “Discover your One Word for the year, own it, live it and experience its impact on your life”. (excerpt from One Word That Will Change Your Life)
Now back to the regularly schedule programming. The book is a very quick read, but I think the message is powerful. Although it isn’t December 2016, I decided to participate in this movement and select my word for 2017. My word = FOCUS. Follow One Course Until Successful. Trust me when I say, I need focus in every aspect of my life. Since selecting my word, I can see a slight shift in my behavior and mindset. When I find myself becoming distracted by the “new shining object” syndrome, I say to myself — FOCUS. Follow One Course Until Successful. Believe it or not, it works. Sometimes, simplicity is the best course of action. In order to track my progress, I’ve decided to document the journey. In 6 months, 9months or year-end, I want to see how far I’ve come.
I don’t have any association with the author; but, I do believe in the concept. If you have a chance, try it. Join the One Word movement
