What's your word for 2013?
I don't like New Year's Resolutions. I think that, by & large, they set us up for failure. Lose weight, clean the garage, change spending habits...they don't address the underlying crap that prompted those woes.
A few years ago, I did a fluffy leadership program & one thing that stuck with me was choosing a "word of the year" rather than a list of resolutions. The word should resonate with you as a "missing link," to address whatever the external manifestation of your issue is: weight gain, disorganization, wacky spending, etc.
Obviously, you have to check in with your word, like a fitness regime or your budget, but you're looking at it all from a deeper perspective.
I'm still pondering my word. And it may not be for everybody. But as I'm creating some year-end content, I thought i'd float this as a way of sharing how I am looking ahead.
