My One Word for 2018: Goals

Happy New Year and welcome to 2018! As is the tradition, now is the time to set your resolution(s) for the New Year. Will you work out more? Eat better? Practice personal care? Drop that 20 pounds you've had creep onto the scale and onto your hips? Or maybe your resolution will be to leave work at a reasonable time. Or spend more time with your family and kids. Or to FINALLY find work/life BALANCE.

Perhaps, like many, you have resolved to give up making resolutions and have started the practice of adopting a single word to guide you through the next 365 days. I know I have. For nearly four years my One Word was YET (this was before I knew that having One Word was a thing, and that there were some guidelines to get you started). Last year my word was BALANCE. And in 2017 I tried my best to find balance: work/life, home/school, social/family, digital/analog, connected/disconnected. I MADE more time for the things of value in my life and when I felt the scales tipping too far in one direction, I made adjustments.

As we start 2018 my One Word for the year will be...

I have had ideas about GOALS for years and 2018 will be the year that I explore the idea of goal setting (and achievement) in depth. Look for more blog posts about GOALS in the coming year, as one of my GOALS is to blog more regularly. Other GOALS for January are to habit track, run a mile a day, and hit the gym three times a week. Sounds typical for the start of a New Year, but I have a half marathon coming up in less than two months and I need to get my butt in gear (literally and figuratively). What GOALS do you have? Is there anything I can do to help?

For more information on choosing your one word, check out my blog post from last year and the official One Word site. Also check out the My One Word site for more inspiration.
