That is my THEME word for 2015.

FINISH that to-do project.
FINISH the reprinting of our book.
FINISH the follow up with the various new opportunities.
FINISH the idea that has been dragging out for years – and do it or don’t do it.
FINISH the day’s work prior to the family coming home.

I’ve used new year’s resolutions and I’ve used annual goals and objectives, yet nothing has compared to not only the results I’ve accomplished in the first 7 weeks of 2015, but more importantly how it FEELS to have a theme for the year.

Here is the “catch” – your THEME can only be one word. Not a phrase, not a mission statement, not two words. One word – trust me and trust the process.

It’s fun. It’s fresh. It’s easy. And it is a whole-person approach to applying your chosen theme to every aspect of your life to achieve your desired results in business and life.

It’s just a whole different energy and focus for not only me, but my family is in on the fun too! Each of them has chosen their theme words for the year as well:

Zachary (8): FOCUS (in karate, in school, while eating, etc.)
Emma (11): BETTER (be an even better student, dancer, friend, sister, etc.)

It has been a great reminder for us all that when we keep life simple and don’t over-complicate it, we actually accomplish more and have a lot more fun while doing it.

What will your ONE WORD THEME be for 2015?

Adventure? Smile? Fun? Health? Faith? Awesome? Love? Connection? HEART?

    […] Johnson, The Positive Energy Guy, a couple of years ago and it really impacted my life.  Today, Brandon’s blog was about a “…fun…fresh…easy” way to create a theme for those things […]

    Mind, body and spirit! I am so glad that I was at this speaking engagement where you shared this story of you and your family picking a theme….and then being able to think about it and discussing it with the people at my table. I am so grateful that my significant other was there with me to share this and we have both chosen words that are really guiding us in life today. In fact, we have chosen activities recently that reflect our themes and it has helped us to eliminate some things that didn’t reflect our themes! Thanks Brandon!
