Why You Need a Word of the Year
Show Notes

Setting goals and addressing habits are key to achieving what you want, but how do we choose the right tasks, projects, and opportunities each day to keep us moving closer to those goals? One of the easiest and most effective ways to help with that is to have a guiding word for every choice you make. This week, episode 138 of the Positively Living Podcast is about why you need a word of the year!

In this episode of the Positively Living Podcast, I’m sharing how having a word of the year can act as a filter to help you decide what to take action on while keeping in alignment with your values and goals and I give you actionable steps to take right now to choose a word that suits you and your year ahead. 

I cover the following topics:

  • How a word of the year can be a valuable tool to filter your decisions and keep you focused on one thing at a time.
  • Questions to ask yourself when choosing a word to guide your year. 
  • Examples of my past words of the year to help get you started choosing your own. 
  • The reasons and results of the last few years and my word of the year for 2023 and why I chose it for this time in my life.

Like everything else, this practice is to be done in a way that works for you. It’s meant to be a guide for a season in your life to keep you grounded and on track, but where you go is always your choice.
