One Word vs New Year Resolutions
Do you select New Year Resolutions each year? Or maybe you choose One Word for the Year? I’ve done both and I prefer choosing One Word!
Resolution Definition – A firm decision to do or not to do something. The thing about resolutions is that they sound simple. But, changing behavior is difficult.
Unless you write your resolutions and then keep them, resolutions may even be forgotten before February. Alternatively, if you were to select One Word, keeping that word in your memory is much easier than resolutions.
According to Statista top New Year Resolutions in the United States include:
Learning a New Skill or Hobby
Be More Successful in 2020
Unfortunately, resolutions that are made at the beginning of the year are NOT kept. Studies have shown that approximately 75% of resolutions do NOT make it to February. Yikes!
Instead of creating a resolution that you won’t keep and you won’t even remember, select a Word of the Year instead!
A Word of the Year is a fun way to set your theme for the year. Your word is a guide that can
Set a Theme for the Year
Keep You Focused
Create Positive Change
Keep You Aware of Your Intentions
In 2015, I was first introduced to the Word of the Year concept. I’ve actually enjoyed each word and what it represents to me. Many mornings I will think of my One Word and what it means for me that day.
It’s essential for your One Word to have meaning to you. This is not a word for anyone else.
This is a list of the One Words that I’ve chosen for the past 5 years:
2015 – Bold
2016 – Action
2017 – Committed
2018 – Today
2019 – Love
