My husband sent this as a generous husband tip and I thought it was great and needed to be shared with the gals as well.
Today I read Chris Brogan’s My 3 Words for 2010, and I like it! In short, each year Chris comes up with three words that he will “use as guidance for how I should conduct my efforts in the year to come”. This is a goal-setting tool, a way of focusing and looking forward. If followed through the year, it would help you stay on task, and could greatly improve your success at accomplishing your goals.
Chris is primarily writing about work/business, but I think we can use the three word concept in many ways. I am going to come up with three words in more than one area of my life. At the very least these will include my marriage, my walk with the Lord, and my goals for our marriage ministry (the last will be three words my bride and I come up with together). My next task is to find a way to keep these words in front of myself. I need to learn to think about them daily, and use them to check if I am on track or wandering off course.
I don’t care how much power, brilliance or energy you have, if you don’t harness it and focus it on a specific target, and hold it there you’re never going to accomplish as much as your ability warrants. Zig Ziglar
