This time of year, many people are setting their New Year’s Resolutions and goals. But have you chosen a word of the year? The Purple Ink team is picking our own words to focus on for 2019; here’s why we think you should too.
As the year goes by, it’s easy to lose sight of what you’re working toward. Choosing a word to focus on throughout the year is a simple way to remind yourself to keep returning to what you value.
Picking one word that encapsulates all your goals can help them work together. Focusing on a single word doesn’t limit you or mean that’s the only thing you can work on all year; it can serve as a guide for how to approach each of your goals.
A word of the year can be a good way to stay on track with your goals. When faced with a decision, all you have to do is consider your one word and which option fits in with it.
Consolidating your goals for the year into one word can be tricky. So how do you decide which word to choose? Ask yourself:
Or, you could start with a brain dump and write down every word that comes to mind. Here are a few ideas to get you started (inspired by the promise Purple Ink makes to each of our clients):
Need some more word ideas? Keep an eye on our blog! As I mentioned above, we’re working on our own words of the year at Purple Ink – we were asked to think about our word in the context of our strengths, our goals, and/or how we can better serve our clients. We’ll each write a blog sharing our word, why we picked it, and how we plan to apply it. Once our word of the year series starts, you’ll be able to find all the entries here.
Nice blog, Emily! I will use these sections to write my blog on Word of the year! Thanks!
