Instead of writing New Year’s Resolutions or goals, since 2016, I choose three words to guide me each year. In January of this year, I interviewed four people about how they choose their 3 words and what those words mean to them. I wanted to follow up with them on how their 3-word activity is going six months later.
If you have not watched the January interview, you may want to begin with that one to understand “How they choose them” and “what the words mean to them.” (Watch January Interview).
In this June interview, I asked them how it was going and if there were any surprises. It was so great to circle back with these folks and hear how powerful this activity really is.
Note: You can read my blog explaining my guiding words and how I choose them this year. (READ NOW)
