#OneWord 2019

I'm a big fan of Jon Gordon.  He writes great books that are easy reads with great messages.  Last summer we read Training Camp with the boys.  Jon co-wrote a book called One Word That Will Change Your Life.  He chooses one word each year that will guide him for the year.  Here's what he has to say about it from a recent blog post.

9 out of 10 people will fail with their resolutions.50% of resolution makers will fail by the end of January.
But one word sticks!
That's why 8 years I ago I stopped making New Year's resolutions and started picking one word for the upcoming year. No resolutions, no goals... just one word that gives meaning, mission, passion and purpose. One word that will help me be my best.

My word for 2019 is

I want to be better at looking like Jesus. 

I want to be better at the things that matter. I want to be better at saying no to the things that don't matter. 

I want to eat better and treat my body better.  Which, oddly enough, means making it hurt for a short while until I get used to exercising again.

I want to be a better wife, mother, daughter, sister, aunt and friend. 

I just want to be better. 

You can find lots of One Word resources at www.getoneword.com

I highly recommend following Jon on Twitter (just click his name) and listening to his Positive University Podcast.  I've learned so much from him since I discovered his work and I know you will too!
