Rather than resolutions, each year I chose one word to help frame my goals and work throughout the year. It helps me. I’ve shared past year’s words already, and 2012’s word was “completion.” I completed many things, indeed, including buying my first home, finishing my first marathon, and many other goals I had in mind.
While “completion” worked for me, I realized that few things are ever really complete; they keep going in one shape or another. Still, the concept was powerful motivation throughout all of 2012. As I look back on the year, I am proud of my accomplishments and choices. It really has been a great year, and I am excited to live 2013 to its fullest.
