At the start of every year, we’re bombarded by articles on how to set resolutions or why we should skip them altogether.
Everyone has their own approach.
Some people swear by choosing one single thing they want to change.
Others make a list of ALL the things they want to change.
There are folks that choose to focus on the things they did right in the year before and vow to continue those actions, rather than impose new ones.
The approach I’m trying this year is to pick one single word that will be my overall focus for 2019.
My word for this year is…
I want to build Endurance in many areas of my life. To work consistently, step by step, every day without expecting instant gratification.
When it comes to exercise, building endurance could help me both lose weight and improve my singing technique.
In songwriting, I want to stop abandoning songs at the first roadblock I encounter. I want to push through and work until they’re complete. Little by little. Every day.
I want to learn to appreciate the discomfort of effort instead of being discouraged by it.
It’s not easy? It takes work?
Good. Bring it on.
What’s your word of the year?
Thanks for reading!
