Three words for 2015

My Three Words for 2015

Three words for 2015I’m a serial goal setter. I love it. It’s makes me happy to write things down that I want to go and do. Over the last few years instead of creating a New Years Resolution I have practiced something called Three Words.  I decide on three words and they become a theme for my efforts in the year to come. I post the words on my computer and by seeing and reading them each day they become a part of my life. I can begin projects, create tasks, and write to-do lists around my words. Or I can just use them as guiding principles. At the end of the year I am able to look back and see how my words helped to shape the past year. 

I mentioned last week that I didn’t do my Three Words post for 2014. I’m kind of regretting that today. I had a really great year but I don’t know for sure if it was aligned with my intentions. Heck, I don’t even know what my intentions were. But that’s okay. Because today I’m looking ahead, not behind.

My three words for 2015

Align ♦ Simplify ♦ Partner
 

Align – This is a reminder to take on only the projects, people, and ideas that are in line with my values, beliefs, and goals. I often say yes to things for the wrong reasons. No, thank you needs to get back into my vocabulary this year.

Simplify – I’m using this to help me choose the path of least resistance when making decisions. I’m also going to simplify how I get things done so I’m spending less time on the process and more on what really matters.

Partner – I want to bring people and things together. I am creating a new group program in 2015 and partnering with like-minded health professionals and health-oriented businesses. I also want to be a better partner in my relationships.

So that’s it. Once again, wish me luck!

And of course I would love to know your intentions for the year…what are your three words for 2015?  Please share!

    These are great, Danielle!! I have been working on my goals for the year. I am trying to break them up into four 90-day sections. Last year, I had too many resolutions and just got overwhelmed. 90 days seems doable but not too much. But I love the idea of three words/themes. Might have to adopt that idea too!
    Happy New Year!! xxoo

    Great post and good luck with your intentions, Danielle!

    With all that comes at us, it’s easy to be pulled in different directions and get nothing done. For the past few years, I’ve set a one word intention for the year. I save it as wallpaper to my phone as a constant reminder.

    I like your idea of setting 3 intentions for the year though. Maybe I will expand 🙂

    Wishing you all the best in 2015!

    My three words are broaden, revitalize and undaunted. So far the month of January all three words have come into play and made me a better person! One of the best things I ever did was setting up that first strategy session with you several years ago. Thanks Danielle!
