2020: A year to enjoy

Updated: Jan 13, 2020

We're still in the counting time of the year—how many times recently have you heard or said: 'my last week of leave' or 'my first day back at work'.

My first week of work, just three days, ended with my colleague Kristen Gyorgak issuing the #OneWord365 challenge. Kristen's blog explains her choice of 'consistent'.

My choice is 'enjoy'.

I certainly enjoyed the first six days of the year; I was on holiday in Rotorua—evidence below!

I'm planning to sustain that sense of enjoyment throughout the year, whether I'm at work, at home, or on holiday again. This is how I see it working...

Enjoy prompts me to be in the moment, to find enjoyment in simple pleasures. Enjoy also prompts gratitude for those pleasures.

Enjoy encourages discernment: am I enjoying listening to or reading this? Am I really enjoying eating or drinking this? (This could be key to better eating I've been looking for!) Are people in workshops enjoying what we are doing?

Enjoy is a touchstone, reminding me to work with my strengths. Learner is my top strength in the Gallup StrengthsFinder model, which means I really enjoy learning. When I learn something, I have more to share.

Enjoy sets the tone—I hope to lose count of what I enjoy in 2020!
