The new year always means a new perspective. It means lists of resolutions and promises to do better. Gym memberships rise, financial planning skyrockets and optimism abounds.
For me I always have a list of resolutions and this year is no different. I’ve also joined others in the #OneWord initiative. For me, in my inaugural #OneWord Resolution, I’ve decided my word will be “Enrich”. To enrich my relationships, my understanding of my profession, my ability to develop myself and others, and the list goes on.
But as I was thinking about New Year’s Resolutions and my #OneWord, I was working on some things for my fraternity when I came across a list of words I had created when asked to make a list of five words for where I saw a chapter at, in five years.
It dawned on me that, in the frenzy of resolutions and looking to 2016, I always get tunnel visioned into the new year, as if it were an isolated frame of time rather than part of my journey.
So, I’m keeping my 2016 resolutions, but I’ve decided to have a Five-in-Five List to aspire to and use as a basis for future resolutions and they are:
So we’ll see how this helps guide and keep me focused into being the type of person I aspire to be.
So what would your 5-in-5 List be?
Until next time
Peace, Love and Pandas!
