I'm not much of a participator. I usually shun "betterment" strategies. I don't make new year's resolutions. But this time I'm going to give in and get on the "word of the year" bandwagon. Why? Because I'm determined to get things done this year, and I need a simple daily reminder.
I'm great at brainstorming and list making, but DOing something is a whole other story. Sometimes what holds me back is analysis paralysis, sometimes it's just laziness, and sometimes it's distractions that lead to procrastination.
Appropriately, my word of the year is DO.
Whether it's a task that takes a few minutes (like ordering a part when the faucet is leaking), or a project that will last days or weeks (like a furniture or room makeover), I'm going to try to get better about just doing it, rather than putting it off. I'll feel more accomplished, and may get some cool things completed in the process.
The reason I initially started writing this blog was to motivate myself to DO something, but I've been slacking off the past year. While I'll still have plenty of inspiration posts here on the blog, I plan to have more posts where I reveal a project I've completed, more like I did when I started out. And I know everybody loves a reveal!
Knowing you are out there will help keep me accountable when I slack off. Thank you for that!
Do you have a word of the year, a new year's resolution, or a plan to improve yourself in 2013? I'd love to hear what other people are trying to get better at this year!
What about tips? Any suggestions for becoming more of a do-er?
