The reason is simple. First, it’s easy to remember and second it encompasses all that I want to achieve in my health, work, relationships, and most importantly faith. So this year, I am proud to announce my one word resolution for 2019.
The reason for the word, less, is because I want to add more meaning to my life. Here are just a few examples of what I mean
- I want to say less, but communicate more effectively.
- I want to worry less about problems, and focus more on solutions.
- I want to be less connected, so I can be more connected to my family.
- I want less tasks and more meaningful work.
- I want to eat less, and exercise more.
- I want to read less mindless mess on social media, so I can read more of God’s word.
- I want to engage less in low-impact work, so I can be more dedicated to thought about things that are high-impact.
These are just a few things that I hope to accomplish in 2019. Chances are that I won’t accomplish them all, but I truly believe that my life will inch closer to less unproductive time-wasters and more efficacy. As you head into 2019, reflect on your work-life balance. Identify the waste, redundancy, and monotony in your life. Set your sights on a better you, and find that one word that’ll keep you committed to reaching your goal of continuous improvement.
