Shift



Well, I am putting my word right up top....Shift 

I really love the thinking behind this idea of choosing one word that will help be my focus this year.
You can do a lot with this.
  Last week I was listening to a woman share a great idea for establishing your 'shift'. She was suggesting that you create a postcard with images that
represent direction.
For instance, on her postcard she had a mosaic of 4 images.
One, was her cottage 
it represented escape from the hectic pace of her life.. 
Another, was a symbol that represented a particular goal in her workplace...
Anyway, I think you see where this is going.
The point she was making was that we often get so scattered, lack focus
that we don't set our own direction.
I loved it when she said that these images were intended as markers for what you needed to
walk towards
and that often it just required a shift in our thinking
or a shift in our attitude
It didn't require a monumental change
as that is what often leads to failure....
that shift which allows us to adjust our vision slightly to the left, 
or to the right or
perhaps even do a 180
may be all it takes.

So my word is SHIFT......

What's Yours?
