MY WORD OF THE YEAR 2019
Last week I decided to share my word of the year with my email subscribers for a specific reason. If you’re not a subscriber yet, make sure you get amongst it.
I share free resources, worksheets, and weekly inspiration. Make sure you go to my resource library to fill this form to become part of the Vial Designs tribe.
The main reason why I picked a word of the year is that I never believed too much in New Year resolutions. I tried setting resolutions for a couple of years, only to find out that I didn’t stick to them past January. This year, I want to be more intentional with my life and how I go about it. That’s why I decided to pick a word of the year.
WHY PICK A WORD OF THE YEAR?
The concept is to pick a word that summaries what you want to focus on in your life at the moment. Or it can be things you need to improve on or something that you need more of.
Having a word of the year encourages you to reflect on the focus word when making decisions. It can help you focus on what’s essential for you to achieve your goals.
I know that life is a series of seasons and it’s always changing. The good thing about this concept is that there are no rules. If you choose a word and then want to change it, add another or replace it, it’s okay. Go for it! The goal is to have a word that helps you focus on what you want more of and what you want less of in your life.
MY WORD OF THE YEAR 2019: CONSISTENCY
My word of the year is consistency. I picked this word because consistency is the one thing that kept coming up every time I was researching goal setting. The funny thing is that last year I had the same word. But the difference is that I choose the word in January and never really gave it much thought.
Then this New Year came, and I wanted to give it a second shot. This year I wanted to be different. So I wrote my word of the year and have it displayed on top of my computer as a constant reminder. Also, I wrote it on my planner and even created a video to share on Instagram and also share it Facebook. Sharing my word of the year with the word, family and friends, helps me stay accountable.
