I'm inspired by social media guru Chris Brogan's blog entry about setting 3-word goals for 2009. He suggests we extrapolate our ideas to three words that can easily remind us all year to stick to our resolutions:
As a cultural writer/multimedia producer finishing a big book project and a handful of media collaborations with others in 2009 -- plus living abroad which complicates matters and make my personal and career challenges more global -- this was a useful exercise.
PROJECT - project myself into my communities, raise awareness for the work I do, foster meaningful connection to others
REALIZE - a combination of 'execute' and 'achieve excellent results', materialize dreams
LIVE - breathe deeply, take chances, do new things i might love and old things i still love, get rid of stuff that slows me down or doesn't reflect who i want to be, embrace my health and opportunities
What are your three words, and why?
