For years I used to write out a long list of New Year’s resolutions, only to not be able to remember what was on the list a week later, let alone where the hell the list even was. So a couple of years ago I started choosing one word and one word only to set the direction for my new year instead, and I discovered that I too could set goals and stick to them in the new year–I just had to start doing it my way.
Choosing just one word for the year works so well for my ADHD brain because it's intentional and it’s simple. I may forget about a whole list of goals, but I can focus on one word every day, all year long because that one word sums up who I want to be in that specific year. My word acts as my compass and helps me make my daily decisions with intentionality. It serves as a North star for me, moving me toward my goals throughout the entire year. I think it'll have a huge impact on you too if you choose to join me.
With one word as your focus, your New Year's goals don’t need to be big cosmic shifts and changes in action and behavior, because it's the little things you do, the tiny actions you take every single day that lead to fulfilling a very big intention or goal in 2023.
