Just 3 Words

by Ray Reuter on January 23, 2014

My 3 WordsEvery year, Chris Brogan does an exercise he calls, My 3 Words For The Year. Brogan explains it like this: “In an effort to tell bigger stories, I’ve found that the concept of three words allows me to think in more dimensions about what I want to do with my life and it lets me apply lots of tangible goals instead of what most people do when they focus on just a finite task. It’s a bit like turbo-charged goal planning.”

I’ve considered this exercise before and decided to jump in this year. After prayerful consideration and thought, my three words for 2014 are below …

  • EMBRACE … fully embracing what God has entrusted to me. I want to more wholly accept and appreciate what I have in my life, and not what I have not.
  • DISCIPLINE … as in applying discipline to multiple areas of my life including keeping holy the Sabbath, investing time, eating and nutrition, playing guitar, prayer, bike riding, writing, email, active indifference, establishing boundaries, saying no, saying yes.
  • ELASTIC … being flexible and stretchy — trusting that things will bounce back when stretched. Living with more elasticity and fluidity.

If inspired and compelled to do this exercise for yourself, what are your three words?
