#035 - How I Finally Chose My Word of the Year

category: entrepreneurship kajabi online course type: podcast


In this episode I’m going to talk about that whole word of the year thing that some of us love and love to hate. I’ve also got phrase of the year, because I’m not one to be satisfied with just a single word.

I’ll talk about how I came up with both of them and how they are going to be driving my business in the next 12 months.

So word of the year. This became a big thing about 5 years ago. I have no idea who started it, but I really liked the concept. My problem? No matter how much thinking I did or how many challenges I participated in I could never come up with a single word that felt right or really resonated.


So I gave up. And every time December rolled around and people began posting about their words I would just roll my eyes in fond amusement and secret envy.


Have a listen to find out:

  • How my word “magically” appeared after several month of hard work I didn’t even realize I was doing
  • How my phrase of the year is going to enforce that word and be the driving factor is what I say yes and no to for the next 12 months
