My three words for 2008

Life is what you make of it. And while it will never turn out the way you plan, it's up to you to take advantage of what comes your way. On recommendation of the Communicatrix, I used some of my long long train ride to Sweden thinking about ways to turn 2008 into my Best Year Yet. This method walks you through the steps of acknowledging your achievements, disappointments and lessons of 2007, and then turns to beliefs and values and things. In the end, you'll have a one-page plan with guidelines, a paradigm, a major focus role and ten goals. I went through a few iterations, and boiled my plan down to three words. With a hat-tip to Chris Brogan, I'm sharing them here.


Connect, Rejoice and Grow.

Hooray! I'm still too much of a windbag for that ninja level of distillation, but all these examples are definitely helpful.

One of my words has to be "Ask." Another good candidate might be "Rest."

I guess I need to figure out some train ride so I can come up with the third.
