Around this time every year, successful people are planning next year and many, declare to me the WORD they have chosen to guide their life.
I like words – especially when combined with wisdom and a few wisecracks – but that might be just me.
Still, I’m always amazed at how excited people get and how much they believe their WORD will guide them into the next year.
I’m jealous. I need a WORD, too – and that’s where the trouble begins.
I can’t imagine choosing a single word to represent 365 days of getting after it. However, having a WORD is an emotional trigger and fires neurons in your brain to keep you moving, so why can’t my WORD be several WORDS?
Just like magic – they arrived…
Simple. Sophisticated. Focused. Automated. Delegated. Deleted. Ritualistic.
It’s a little Stoic, and a lot of Scott LOGIC – it works for me.
Still… I missed one. And it turned out to be the GLUE that held all those other words together.
Resilient. That’s the key to success.
If you could use an emotional supercharger, choose a WORD… or WORDS for next year… and see how everything goes your way.
