Try New Things
I’ve chosen ONE WORD and a “MANTRA” that I plan to use as reminders going forward this year. Both are designed to help me stay alert for growth and improvement opportunities: personal growth, professional growth, and relationship growth.
My “ONE WORD” is “Connect”
Connect deeply with my amazing wife
Reconnect with family members with whom I’ve missed spending time since the Pandemic began in 2020
Reconnect and connect with friends and rekindle my social relationships, many of which I’ve let slide and not given the attention I need over the past two years
Connect, at a deeper level, with my clients
Reconnect with former clients
Reconnect with former colleagues
Connect with fellow board members at area nonprofit organizations at which I serve
Connect with business leaders in my local market to explore mutually beneficial relationships
Connect more with my fellow cycling community enthusiasts
Connect with my spiritual self
My “MANTRA” is “Try New Things”
This year is my year to experiment with new things, new ways, new beginnings, new interests
I plan to intentionally try SOMETHING NEW at least once a week. I’ll reflect on that new thing during my weekly planning time
I also plan to intentionally connect with SOMEONE NEW at least once per month
Other “New Thing” opportunities I intend to at TRY include:
New authors whom I've not read before
New genres of reading, including more “fun” reading
New tools to add to my coaching practice toolbox (I’ve already started a list of these)
New exercise and fitness activities (I intend to mix things up more this year and minimize fitness plateaus)
New places to visit - locally, regionally, and elsewhere
How about you?
What’s YOUR “one word” this year?
Is there a mantra that resonates with YOU?
