Choosing a word of the year is so important. Another way of saying word of the year is a guiding word. Choosing a guiding word (no matter what time of the year it is) is so important.
Yes, resolutions often fail, and yes, a year is a long time to make any sort of commitment. But by choosing a word of the year, you’re giving yourself a guide post.
A problem for me, is that I often get distracted by new ideas. Anyone who knows me well, would laugh at this and call it a colossal understatement. My brain has so many new ideas, I’m like a dog getting distracted by a squirrel.
This isn’t all bad, but I have realized that I need to stay grounded and focused. As I stand at the end of a year, and look ahead to the next, I want to ground myself with a word that can steer me and direct me. Maybe it will be one word for you, or maybe it will be more. But, you do need to give some thought to choosing a guiding word.
