Continuing You in 2017

So, do you have your 3 words you want to use to describe yourself this year?

If you’re curious about what we’re talking about, check out last week’s post here.

What we know is that having a goal (these three words) is awesome – and to actually make things happen, we need some actions we can commit to.

Ready to start?

Step 1: Look at your calendar and pick a time each month (for an hour) that you can block to take the time to reflect on YOU

  • Strive for consistency, such as the last Friday or the first day of each month
  • Send yourself a re-occurring invite for that time each month through December

Step 2: Take each of your three words and ask yourself, what is one thing I can do between now and the next reflection time to start to see progress?

Step 3: WRITE IT DOWN. Put it somewhere you’ll see so it doesn’t get lost in the shuffle of life!

Need some places to start?

  • Maybe you want to hit new goals this year …
    • Define one of those and talk to your Manager about it in your next 1×1
  • Or you want to finish a 10k …
    • Decide on the month you want to race and choose which race you want to do (AND maybe even register for it!)
  • Or maybe you want to start an herb garden …
    • Take some time to choose a couple of herbs you want to start with

Then, when you have your blocked time next month, ask yourself some questions about these words. For example:

  • How am I seeing change in these areas?
  • What more can I do?
  • Who do I need to talk to in order to make that happen?
  • What is the next step or thing I can do before next month?

Excited for YOU in 2017?

Us too!

Be sure to share your words with us. We’d love to know!

Finishing Out Strong

Finishing Out Strong

Do you remember back in January of 2015 when we asked you what 3 words you wanted to use to describe 2015?

I know January feels like FOREVER ago! As we are starting the process of wrapping up 2015, pull out (or think back!) to those three words.

How’d you do?

We’ve got a couple more weeks – what do you need to do to finish out this year strong?

Maybe there’s a conversation you’ve been putting off – prep for it and have it!

There is that ONE pile on your desk that you’ve been claiming your going to get to eventually – organize it!

Whatever that thing is that you’ve been putting off for the last week or two (….or three….) commit to doing it in the next week.

There is no reason to leave something hanging around from this year.

Commit. To. Doing…. That’s how we can continue to push ourselves to be better than we currently are!
