I’ve long been a fan of giving my year a theme. The one word or phrase helps me stay on track long after the rush of my “100 things to do” list is done.
This year’s theme is “implementation.” I love dreaming up grand plans and creating plans. But implementing them is a challenge. I always feel like I have more time to get things done.
Catching up on my RSS feeds today, I came across Chris Brogan’s concept of simplifying your goals to three words. I really like it.
So for 2009, mine are:
Strategize | Execute | Enjoy
Strategize: I love doing this so I want to keep this as a major thing I do, both for my own goals and for my clients.
Execute: I will learn to love doing this, largely because I love the results it brings.
Enjoy: I’m the kind of person that needs to give myself permission to enjoy things. Both work-related and personal.
What are your three for this year?
