A great way to set your course for the new year is to choose a word. A single word that encapsulates what you want to focus on, what you need to improve, what you want or need more of, or what you are calling-in. One word that you can focus on every day, for the next 365 days. One word that sums up who you want to be, how you want to show up, or how you want to live your life.
Choosing a single word provides an anchor and encourages you to consciously (and subconsciously) consider this focus word as you move forward throughout the year. It will become the compass that directs your decisions and guides your steps as you move forward on your journey.
