As the crowd counted down to 2018, and we all looked to the sky for a fireworks spectacular, I thought about what my “word” would be for the new year. My word needed to be something that would capture what I wanted to happen. One word that would describe my goals and aspiration. One word that would push me to be better.
And in that moment – as the neon sparks illuminated the sky and friends sang along to choreographed songs they kinda knew – I shivered and smiled and sang right back. Song after song brought back memories of 2017. I reminisced about all the changes I’d had over the year, the goals I had accomplished, and the bucket list items I still wanted. In that moment, I decided what my word would be.
This year’s word is growth.
I worked on my 2018 goals by working through the Year Compass. If you’ve never heard of it, I highly recommend it. It certainly takes time if you do it correctly, but why wouldn’t you? It’s your life after all. And most certainly your year.

What about you? How will you grow in the new year? Or better yet, what’s your word for 2018?
