What is your “ONE WORD” for 2021?

Jan 04, 2021 07:00 am | Bob Tiede 

Did you know that your “One Word” for 2021 could dramatically increase your effectiveness in the coming year?

There is incredible power in having a single focus!

Jon Gordon, Dan Britton and Jimmy Page have written an incredible book:  “One Word That Will Change Your Life.” They share:

“87% of us make New Year’s Resolution every year. Although these resolutions are meant to be good and well-intentioned solutions, unfortunately they are built on a flawed assumption of more effort,  willpower and goal setting. We set to-do goals instead of to-be goals.  Success is measured by what we accomplish instead of who we become.

Something needed to change.  In 1999 we discovered the solution to failed resolutions and unrealized goals. Instead of trying to develop more willpower we found a simple way to live more powerfully. Instead of creating goals and resolutions we found a single word that would be the driving force for the year.  No goals.  No resolutions.  Just One Word!  We simply developed a One Word theme for the year. It became a One Word Vision for everything and it changed our lives.”

Jon, Dan and Jimmy have also created a wonderful website to help you discover your One Word: 

So what “One Word” has the potential of changing you and where you will find yourself at the end of 2021?

Here are my “One Words” from past years:

(Yes I know this is two words – how would you shorten it to one word?)

What is your “ONE WORD” for 2021?

Suggestion One:  Once you have chosen your “Word” for 2021 – make it visible!  Write it down!  Paste it on your mirror!  Paste it on your computer!  Paste it on your steering wheel!

Suggestion Two:  Every time you need to make a decision in 2021 make your “One Word” part of your consideration.  Is saying “Yes” consistent with your “One Word?”  or is saying “No” consistent with your “One Word?”

Request:  Please share your “One Word” for 2021 by entering it in the “Comment” section below:  Thanks!

One more Suggestion:  Now that you have chosen your “One Word” for 2021 – might your company/team also want to choose “One Word” for 2021?  And/or might your family want to choose “One Word” for 2021?
