I seemed to always fail at my resolutions. I made too many. I didn't make enough. I forgot all about them by January 3.
When I learned about OLW back in late 2014 I jumped on the idea. How "easy" would it be to focus on one little word?
For me it made a difference. It gave me:
- a focus.
- a purpose.
- something to work on.
It was just what I needed. I'm not much on journaling or self-reflection but having a OLW helped me do some reflection even if I didn't write it down. It also helped me self-correct behaviors I wanted to work on.
I'm looking forward to my time with my OLW, choose, this year. But I started wondering how I could focus even more on my OLW throughout the year. I'm going to make an infographic like I do every year. I made a little... thingy (that's the technical term) to put on my blog last year and I'll do that again this year. But I want to do more with choose this year.
So I've been thinking.
- I want the word more visible than just the infographic I hang in my office and the thingy on my blog.
- I'm going to take pictures and/or make note of the things I choose to make a scrapbook that I'll print at the end of the year.
- I'm going to write one weekly blog about my OLW.
- I found some cuff bracelets I can customize on Etsy. I going to have one made to wear daily.
Do you do a OLW? What's your OLW? How do you stay focused on your OLW throughout the year?
