New Year ! New Words! My 3 Words for 2012

Happy New Year! 2012 Can you believe it! I hope you were able to bring in the New Year safely with a bang. I kept my New Year pretty low key attending church with my girlfriends Niehla and Teslyn, and watching fireworks at Navy Pier with the fella. The pastor shared that 2012 is THE YEAR OF NEVER BEFORE! That really energized me! I’m looking forward to seeing what 2012 will bring for my family, friends, and me and my business.
I spent this week doing a lot of goal setting for myself thinking about what I would like to accomplish and just like every other person that is blogging I too would like to share my goals here.
I am keeping up with my new tradition of selecting 3 words for the year, a idea I adopted from marketing/media man Chris Brogan. I still have goals and I have even stolen other goals (Heather over at Habitually Chic, has a resolution, I mean goal to wake up earlier that’s a really good one!) But the 3 words I feel throws all those goals and projects into one of the three words.. So lets get into it. Here they are and if you have 3 words for 2012 feel free to share them in the comments:

Stephanie's 3 Words for 2012:
Risk: I really want to step out of the box this year, changing up my hair, trying a new marketing plan, working on new projects and just all around make myself more vulnerable to my art and more open to sharing what I am working on. If I am feeling uncomfortable about going a certain direction that’s probably exactly what I should be doing.

Complete: This is so simple here, I just want to finish what I start. I have a lot of things on my plate and I am not complaining here. It’s crazy how the things that I want to happen in my life actually happen and being very busy, having lots going on is exactly what I want.  Thanks to artist consultant Kesha Bruce I have selected two personal projects that I am going to take on this year and complete and I am really looking forward to them. I should really blog about my experience with Kesha she is all that and a bag of chips and I would encourage all creative folks to sign up for her blog. I’m eager for movement in 2012

Discipline: From losing 50 lbs (already down 15 by the way) to saving for my emergency fund and living on a … BUDGET to returning emails in a timely matter and visiting my godson and cousins twice a month, there are  set of things that I need to complete on a daily basis and I just need to get them done. I thought that discipline and complete could be almost the same thing but I am going to keep them separate because Discipline will keep me moving forward and compete is , well completing whatever the task at hand is.

So there we have it Stephanie’s 2012 Goals in 3 Words, so just wish me luck because now I have to COMPLETE all that I have said in this goal. LOL

Share your goals or words with me in the comments.

Thanks for reading and enjoy your day
