Why One Word is Not Enough for My 2017

I have seen a few dozen posts this morning, talking about “what's your word for 2017?”. For weeks I've tried to come up with a word, but it's just not happening. A

Let's try it anyway. My mantra is “work less make more”.

Work? No, not a good word for 2017.

Less? Sure, but I want to make more, so no.

Make? Uh.

More? Yeah! But.. I want to work less.

I have ADD. I need a word each week (or day or hour). Coming up with a word for the whole year is stressing me out!

I love the power behind the word “slay”, but it's so overused it's ruined for me. Slay will not be my 2017 word.

Same with hustle. I love the word but it doesn't really cover everything I want for my 2017.

I'm struggling, guys. I just can't sum my goals up in one word. It's tough enough to break it down to a sentence!

My goal is to come up with a 2017 word… just give me a few.

What's your word for 2017?

  1. Last year was the first time I chose a word so I chose believe. Which I used in everything I did. So I grew so I thought that would be perfect for this year but it didn’t encompass all I want to accomplish so I chose Soar. As it’s what I want to do this year.

  2. I have been thinking about this as well a lot recently. There is so much growth I want to see for myself. And so much healing. I been through the ringer emotionally for the past 2.5 years. And there’s so much I want to accomplish this year. I am thinking, accomplishment, growth and healing are going to be my words.

  3. Commit. I want to commit to the goals I set for myself last year, and let slide. I want to commit to working less while making more. I want to commit to travelling the summer away, not working it. Commitment has always been my hardest obstacle, but no more. My 2017 word is commit!
