A Word About Making 2016 Brilliant For Your Career
Want to know the one word or phrase that will make sure your 2016 is absolutely brilliant? Read on and be inspired!
I love the new year opportunity to make a list of resolutions. It energises me. Within a few short weeks I am depleted. It’s rare I ever hit those resolutions. I am surrounded by stalled goals and then slip into a pattern of new promises to myself. Not this year.
You see, I received a priceless gift just before Christmas. And I am going to share it with you. Here’s the key, then the background:
What is the word that describes the most urgent, important, valuable behaviour or change you can make in 2016?
This change – if achieved- must improve your happiness. It could even help you achieve career goals?
The concept evolves from the world of mindfulness. Let’s use it to turbo-charge our careers in 2016. It will take you five minutes to get the compass point to the value.
Watch the 5 minute video (link below). Kamal Sharma sent it to me. It’s the gift I received. Kamal encourages us to ditch resolutions in 2016. Rather, get focussed on one word that, if we can bring that one word to life in 2016, will make the most powerful difference to our lives.
Now- it does not have to be ONE word. Here are some examples:
* Learn new stuff
* Attention to detail
* Social media presence
* Push myself to the front
* Go the extra step
* Pick up phone every day
* Manage emotions
* Time out
Rather than have a series of goals, pick one behaviour or outcome you really, really want to achieve this year. Visualise it. ‘Brand’ it on your brain. Put reminders of that word around your workspace, on the shower wall, on the car dashboard. Keep reminding yourself of that one word/phrase. Make it a habit. Habits lead to persistence. Persistence leads to results.

Oh- and what’s my word for 2016? BREATHE. It’s a simple as that. I have to de-stress and give myself some self-love. If I can do that, I’ll lift in everything I do. Good luck, and have a great 2016!
