Two of my favourite bloggers shared their “word” for 2017 here and here. Even if you’re not into making a list of New Year’s resolutions, it’s important to have goals or an idea of where you’re headed for the year. So seeing their two bold words got me thinking…
If 2016 showed the world anything, it was to expect the unexpected. Be ready for change because, as the cheesy saying goes, the only constant is change.
Technology, environmental trends and even politics are all changing the way we do things and how we live our lives. We have become a society constantly dependent on the ‘next big thing’ and we have limited patience waiting for what that is. I suspect it’s only going to get worse and unless you know how to deal the changes coming at you, it’ll be another stressful year like 2016 was.
The ability to be able to adapt to these changes is what I see as survival. Be it at home, at work and within myself. It requires learning new skills in lightning fast time. It means not stagnating at work. Being relevant is key and allows for constant re-inventing of who I am.
That’s pretty exciting. You can be anything you want and do almost anything you set your sights on in 2017! Expect the unexpected! Be prepared to change! And if you do, the world is your oyster (gosh, stop with the cheese Bron!).
It’s got me thinking… maybe I should study this year. Nothing too serious, but I’ve been itching to do a writing course. Yup, that’s it. I’ve decided and now super excited!
How about you? What’s the first thing that springs to mind? Or if it’s not a thought or quote, what’s your word for 2017?
