Do you have a word for 2014? My word last year was “embrace”. I did embrace many things in life and stepped out of my comfort zone at times. I did this in my personal and professional life. It felt amazing to activly support changes and grow.
In early 2013, I decided I wanted to discover Google Plus, so I made a profile with my photo and name which was not something I was immediately comfortable with, but I decided to embrace it and do it. I read several tutorials and articles on navigation of the (relatively) new social site. I joined some great communities and attended Google Hangouts. I learned a ton about Google+ and made many great friends along the way.
I also embraced the opportunities to educate myself in the areas of SEO, back links and affiliate advertising. In my personal life, I embraced the time with my parents, who are having health problems and are slowly needing more assistance with living each week.
So when I was asked what my word was for this year, I was not quite ready to let go of “embrace”. But there are so many things that I need to do to reach my goals. So my word for 2014 is “priorities”. It is all about setting them and adhering to them so that I am not wasting time on things that do not support my goals. But it is also about making time for things like family, friends, relaxation and education.
Do you ever feel that you are not prioritizing in ways that support your goals? Do you have a word for 2014?
