My ONE WORD for 2015

Every year I take part in an idea called ONE WORD.

For me it’s selecting one word to be my driving force for the year. It’s the one word that I will use as my theme to help guide my goals and my decisions so that everything aligns (and so I don’t get off track).

My ONE WORD for 2015 is:

OPTIMIZE

Why Optimize?

Because I want to Optimize:

  • My Health (eating better, working out more, conscious choices that make me healthier, etc)
  • My Relationships (spending more quality time with God and the people around me who matter most)
  • My Business (creating better processes, scale and opportunity)
  • My Impact (being more intentional with the fruits of my work so that a greater difference can be made)

What about you? Do you have ONE WORD for 2015?

You can learn more about the ONE WORD movement at www.GetOneWord.com and check out the ONE WORD book here.
