One word resolutions

Dan Rockwell, the LeadershipFreak on Twitter, posted today on how to set SMART single word new year resolutions.

These help drive the behavioural and attitudinal change we often seek as we enter a new year – and are a good deal more attainable than conventional resolutions we make and fail to stick to.

My word for 2014 is ‘invest’. Not in terms of financial investment – I’m not looking to create a stocks and shares portfolio. Rather, I’m using it as a way to prioritise and┬ájustify the input needed to specific projects, relationships and causes.

With a multi-faceted role in a small business as well as the platform building adventure I’ve embarked on in recent years, I think seeing my time and energy as an investment will help me build better relationships, achieve more and above all focus more on the things that matter.

Procrastination can be a big problem when you’re thinly spread.

Q: What’s your word for 2014?

  1. Mine is “filter”.

    To filter out the day-to-day crap that distracts you and to filter out the overwhelming noise that can take you off-piste in an instant. To filter out everything that is unnecessary in both my personal & professional life and make sure I focus on the priorities. Be that remembering the basics of marketing or ensuring I eat well, look after my self and spend time with my family. And if I could’ve had two words, they would’ve been “say no” (more often). Ok, that’s four.
