Resolutions Suck - 2023 Word of the Year and How to find Yours

Resolutions Suck - 2023 Word of the Year and How to find Yours

What is a Word of the Year?

Each year apart from reviewing goals, we like to select a word or phrase that we think is key for success in the next season of work and effort. Knowing this One thing (An amazing book by Gary Keller about success worth reading) that we can come back to will help inform our work and efforts.

Word of the Year: A single word or phrase that brings you back to focus on the mindset or work that will have the largest impact on your goals.

What is the one lever that is the backbone of growth and focus. 

It is ok to have the same word for multiple years, consistency and focus is one of the main keys to success after all. 

So why pick a word? Because it recenters us daily as all those shiny objects and opportunities come up. 

Last Year's Word

Our word for 2021-22 was Launch and boy did we, thanks to our awesome 1400+Crowdfunding Backers. We refined our Secret Whiteboard design, generated our first photos, videos, raised over $250k, built our Sableflow.com website and delivered those Secret Whiteboards!

It was a season of pushing and problem solving on a weekly and daily basis. There are so many things to figure out with our first foray into crowdfunding, and manufacturing a large product with many elements of complexity.

We could not be more proud of the product we fulfilled and continue to offer on our site.

Our 2023 Word of the Year: Partnership

For 2023, we are focused on growth. The solution to how we achieve that growth is one word:  PARTNERSHIP.

Through Partnership we can achieve our goals of:

  • Reaching New Audiences

  • Adding New Products to our Catalog

  • Building our Art Store with amazing work from current artists

  • Offering bonuses and benefits to you

  • Developing Educational material to help you achieve your goals

How to find Your Word of the Year?

  • Identify your main goals for the year or “season”.

  • Ask some questions:

    • What if these goals could be accomplished easily and calmly (or in a fun way)?

    • Identify the key element for each goal that would make it happen? The winning setup that makes the goals inevitable.

    • What do those goals and key elements have in common?

    • What consistent effort from you would make the largest impact on all these goals?

  • How would you summarize the effort you need to do in a single word or two?

Comment your word or phrase below and why!
