One little word 2015 Focus

I love making lists and setting goals, which is why I always set New Year’s Resolutions.

Last year I had 11 resolutions. However, I wasn’t entirely happy with them. When I thought about them I realised that like most other years these resolutions would probably be forgotten about by February.

So I decided to forget about them and instead base my year on one word, one little word that would determine how I made decisions, and how I lived my life.

After some research I discovered that many people were already doing this, and it was working for them.

Through my research I stumbled upon a workbook by Martine Holston on how to define your year. I completed the workbook and set my one little word for 2014, which was create.

You can read about how I choose create here and can read about how successful create was for me here.

To set my one little word for this year I used Martine Holston’s workbook again. This year my one little word is focus.

How did I choose focus? It was really natural. After doing Martine’s warm up activities and looking at words that other people have chosen in the past, I chose 5 words that could become my one little word for this year, which were:

  1. Focus
  2. Choose
  3. Commit
  4. Decide
  5. Moment

For me, focus stood out from the start. It felt good and was actually a front runner last year, so I couldn’t look past it. Focus- it was a no brainer, this would be my word.

“A main purpose or interest

So now that I had my one little word I set three goals, which are:

  1. Focus on this blog. Really commit to it, stick to a posting schedule, dedicate time to it. Grow its content and community.
  2. Focus on the moment, enjoy and appreciate where I am instead of thinking about what else I could be doing, or where else could be more fun.
  3. Focus on being financially responsible and saving money, instead of buying things I don’t need.

My big, audacious goal for this year:

To be more focused when making decisions. I don’t want to overthink them or doubt them. I want to focus on what’s important in my life and make decisions that will get me to where I want to be.

I’m excited on where focus will take me this year. I’m curious on how much it will allow me to focus on the moment and make decisions that are good for me.

  1. Good luck on all the focussing hun! My blog is also a focus for me too – it’ll be challenging but it’ll be fun! I have good feelings for 2015 so fingers crossed we kick some ass 🙂

  2. “Focus” will be such a helpful defining word, Lisa. I always need help pulling my directionless self into getting on with the job! Best wishes for a really focused, fulfilling year ahead. x

    1. Hello and thank you for your kind words. I’m hoping focus will be good for me this year and think it’s quite similar to your word complete. Let’s see how well our words go for us this year 🙂
