Last year, my #oneword was ‘Strive’ – I shared with you all a great activity that I did with my RA’s and how much fun it was for them to come up with a word & then for me to run with it as the word I wanted to use for myself!
This year, my #oneword is a word I’ve been saying almost daily in my job. I wish I did this more. I wish other folks did this more. I know that I CAN do this more. I intend on doing this more.
My word for 2012 is ‘Sharing.’ No cool graphic this year to illustrate it (sorry!).
I debated doing ‘Share’ vs ‘Sharing’ – and decided on the verb/action because I want to do more of it this year.
For me there are two parts of this goal:
1) Personal life – I don’t do a good job at sharing what goes on with me with those around me. I can do better. This is the bigger part of the goal.
2) Professional life – I work at a large-ish institution within a large-ish department. I can do a better job at sharing the triumphs of the area that I work in, sharing the ideas/mechanisms that I use in my area, and also at encouraging others to share their great ideas as well.
So, while last year I was pushing others (and myself) to ‘Strive’ to do better — this year, I’m pushing myself and others to be a better part of the community that is ‘Sharing.’
What is your #oneword2012 ?
How could you be better at ‘Sharing’?
