Focus on What Matters


Are you a New Year’s “resolutioner”? Or, instead, have you joined the #oneword365 crowd to come up with your One Word for 2014? Here’s the idea…choose just one word for the whole year. Forget the New Year’s resolutions and discover the impact that your one word can have on your actions and decisions. Use your one word as a compass to determine how you want to live or who you want to be.

This idea intrigued me because, truth be told, I am terrible at New Year’s resolutions.

Like most women my age, my life is cram-packed with family, work, and all kinds of activities, and that is exactly the way I like it. I enjoy the opportunity to wear several different hats (metaphorically speaking) and have snippets of every part of my life swirling around in my brain at any given moment.

The word I have chosen for 2014 is FOCUS. (I even put it on the wall of my office, in vinyl lettering.)

By focusing on FOCUS (oh the irony!) I am striving to be more present in every aspect of my life, whether it’s work-related or playing Ticket to Ride (our new favorite board game) with my sons.

What is your One Word?
