My word for 2023 is ‘Now‘.
Now is the time to make things happen. I’m 43. While I have plenty of life left, at the same time, I don’t have very much time left, and certainly none to keep doing more of the same things which are not working.
Now is where 80% of my focus should be; too much time thinking about Past & Future is arresting.
Now is where I can find the most power, beauty & joy in relationships and all things.
Now is something I tend to avoid, particularly around conflict or tension. It’s best to complete or deal with most things upfront Now, because Later tends to be more stressful or too late.
Now prevents distraction, assuages fear, and leaves nothing important undone.
