The idea is developed in the book One Word That Will Change Your Life by Jon Gordon, Dan Britton and Jimmy Page. The premise is to find one word to apply to the six core areas of your life.
These areas are:
In 2015, my word was “accountability.” I think of myself as a responsible person but “accountability” kicked it up a notch! Applying the thought of “accountability” to all areas did keep my focus and also provided for continuity in moving forward – setting goals and so on.
Choosing your word may or may not be easy. Your word may also choose you! Last year was challenging but this year my work came quickly after listening to the audible version of the book. It takes about an hour to listen to the complete book!
Along with working on written statements for each area and my word, I also created a quick vision board reflecting my 2016 word — COURAGE.
