word for 2017Peculiar question you might think… What is your word for 2017? But this is a useful shorthand way of planning your year ahead!

Now I am not saying that you should ditch your long term goals and 5 year plan because these are vital to keep you on track but having a word for 2017 that sums up where you want to go during the year is a quick way of giving you direction.

What will your word for 2017 be?

To find your word – brainstorm some ideas, write down words or phrases that resonate with you or express where you want to go and what you want to do next year. And then gradually filter your choices down to just one word. This word might mean something different to you than purely the dictionary definition and that is absolutely fine. Once you have decided, print out this word and stick it on your office wall or have it as your screen saver to give you inspiration.

I am still playing around with a couple of ideas but “flow” is my favourite at the moment!
