Over the Christmas break, I began thinking about the upcoming year. I wanted to do another word for the year, but just didn't know what it would be. I began brainstorming my list of potential words -
- by yourself
- let enough be enough - I don't remember where or why this one came to mind
I liked the word create, but I didn't feel like it was enough, so I procrastinated. The new year started and I was still wordless. I decided to do what any good wordless wonder would, I searched the internet for inspiration. I found several sites that focus on a single word for the year like brave, surrender, cherish, ask, capture and open. In my search, I also stumbled upon a blog post, My 3 Words for 2013, by Chris Brogan, CEO of Human Business Works. Chris chooses 3 words each year to help him focus on his goals and efforts. He explains that these three words should, "...sum up what you want to work actionably on changing/improving in the coming year." Naturally, you want to keep your words positive and they should represent the big picture for the year. Chris uses either a word or the name of a person that represents his bigger picture for the year.

What about you? If you had to select a word (or 2 or 3) to "...sum up what you want to work actionably on changing/improving in the coming year", what would you choose?
