Focus Is My Word For 2016 – What Is Yours?

Focus Is My Word For 2016 - What Is Yours

All of the sudden it came to me today as I was sitting down to open the computer, I knew what my word for 2016 was going to be.  In past years, I have done a list of things I’d like to get done with the upcoming new year and I have liked doing that and may still in the upcoming week or two, but this is my first year picking out a word for the year.  

A single word to use to meld everything together that I’d like to get out of the new year.  

Focus is my word for 2016, what is yours?

Focus Is My Word For 2016 - What Is Yours

I want to focus more on my blog here.  I want to be better about doing my weekly segments.  More regular everyday average posts as well.  I just want to be more of “me” back into the blog again.  I have lacked that in recent months.  So even though my blog grew greatly in the last year, I want it to grow more while bringing the focus back for me.

I also want to take more focus away from the computer.  I feel I spend way too much time attached to the hip to my computer.  But I always feel if I walk away I won’t finish this or that, or I just won’t have time to visit other blogs or just browse other sites if I don’t stay on the computer all the time.  I want to kind of focus away from the survey sites I do and take more time for this blog.  It’s hard though since I know the surveys pay and I don’t want to lose that pay outlet too. More of that if the survey is really annoying me or I am dragging on one single survey for too long than to close it and move on.

Putting more focus onto Jason and Roxy is a big one too, which ties in with the earlier statement.  I want more time and focus on the real me, the outside me.  Which means time with them, coloring, reading, traveling and whatever else.  Just more family focus and me focus.

So, in a nutshell, Focus Is My Word For 2016 – What Is Yours?  I’d love to hear your word for the upcoming year or even just regular old goals/resolutions.  

  • I’m going to spend some time thinking about this. I’ve also been thinking about what I’d like my blog to become. What’s your plan for checking back in with this goal?

    • Do you mean checking in to see how I am doing with the goal? Or do you mean how I mean to tackle it?
      As for seeing how I did, I usually give me until the end of the year to see how I did or sometimes mid year too.

  • I haven’t figured out my word yet. I do need to give it some more thought, though it might have just come to me while typing my response.

    It’s kind of vague and all encompassing, but I have specifics I can measure.

    I’m debating between two words. I’ll keep you posted.

    I haven’t figured out my word of the year yet. I wish I could just figure out what I want to do, I know I need to do more things for myself that make me happy. I like your word of the year and I look forward to reading more posts on your blog.

    • Thanks April – I am kind of clueless what I really want too, besides wanting to bring in more income for our household. lol I’ll flop around and figure it out at some point! I hope you can figure yours out and what makes you happy! You being happy is so important.

    My one little word is Choose. I started like a lot of you with many different options, but when it all boiled down to it, I could Choose each word. Choose joy, choose success, choose peace, choose to forgive, choose to let go, choose to focus, but really, CHOOSE ME. So I CHOOSE this year to be the year I CHOOSE! I like the word focus, and I like that your goal is to focus on your blog and your family. My blog and what I do with it is my 1st thing I CHOOSE to focus on this year, because it is what I choose as a career and I think it should reflect who I am. I will be going more in-depth on my blog later this week when I share my vision board.

    • Love your word Rose – I can’t wait to read the whole idea of it!

  • Focus is so important! My word for the year is Progress, and I know I’ll definitely need a lot of focus to make sure I make progress on my list of goals!

    • Thanks Laurel. I thought it was a good one to pull me back in to “life” in general. I felt kind of floating last year. Progress is an excellent one as well. I’d love to see some progress myself in several areas. Which reminds me I really need to get up my goal for the year too soon!
