I have an announcement to make:
January - New Year's - is now officially over.
Did you make some resolutions? Did you keep them?
All of them?
If you're like most Americans, you're already feeling frustrated with yourself, defeated. And you're deciding that next year you won't bother making resolutions.
Or maybe you decided that last year and didn't make any this year (but secretly felt like a slacker hearing all your friends talk about their resolutions last month).
Well I have good news. You get a second chance! And it gets even better ... rather than writing out a long list of resolutions covering the many ways you'd like to improve this year, I'm going to suggest you prayerfully choose just one word as your 2010 resolution.
JUST ONE WORD to be your focus or lens for 2010.
JUST ONE WORD that represents what you most hope God will do in you and your life in 2010.
Doing resolutions this way forces clarity and focus. This is my 5th year doing resolutions this way and I recommend you give it a try. I've even got a way to help you remember your word - your singular resolution - through out the entire year. Because let's face it, most resolutions are forgotten by April.
Intrigued? Pop over to myoneword.org to learn more about this resolution revolution. It will guide you in picking your word and getting started. *Be sure and register your email address there to receive the email reminders and application activities throughout the year.
This year my word is SLOW. Perhaps you'll hear more about that later in a post here, or in a video there. For now, go check it out and if you decide to pick a word, come back and leave a comment and share your word with me. Let the revolution begin!
Grateful for my one word.
