While goal setting has always been a favorite exercise for me, of late I am attempting something different. That has been working brilliantly for me. It is simple and awesome. That is a rare combo. Hence, it is immensely valuable.
I experimented this idea with a few friends and students. They responded enthusiastically. Later on, they shared, the results were brilliant.
Here is what I have been doing. Long sentences have a habit of being forgotten. Instead of making a resolution that runs into sentences, I am just picking up a single word as my focus word. I then ‘live’ that word wholeheartedly.
One word is easy to remember and stick to.
One word brings superb focus.
One word gives a lot of clarity.
One word packs a lot of power.
One word does change life.
One word is holistic.
One word is big.
My one word for last year was ‘abundance’
Whenever I had a desire, the first question I would ask myself is ‘Is there abundance?’ in my thinking. If yes, I will entertain the thought further. Otherwise, I would amend or drop the thought.
A student Dr Briggitta chose the word, ‘laughter’
Another student Lobo chose the word, ‘fitness’.
Yet another one chose ‘spirituality’
Another student Bharat chose ‘happiness’
Another student BL chose the word ‘gratitude’
Another student Sona shared, her word was ‘appreciate’
Another student chose the word ‘relationships’
What is the one word that you would chose? Do give it a shot for a few days. I am sure it will do a world of good to you. It did to me and to many others.
With loads of love, prayers and best wishes,
As I Live…I Learn
