3 Words for 2012

I have been a long time follower of Chris Brogan (@ChrisBrogan).  I bring up Chris in today’s blog because every year for several years now he has chosen 3 words to encompass that year’s “resolutions”.  In his own words:

Every year since around 2006, I’ve been challenging people to forego the idea of a resolution, and instead, to come up with 3 words that will help you define your goals and experiences for the coming year. Resolutions are often too vague, or too directed towards one goal. It might be “quit smoking” or “lose 20 pounds” or “get hired.” These are all fine aspirations, but I challenge you to dig deeper, to find three words that could be used as lighthouses to guide you through stormy seas, that can be used as flags on the battlefield of your challenges, words that will bolster you and give you a direction that goes beyond the goals you might attach as a result of these words.

In 2012, Chris’ words are Temple. Untangle. Practice.  Read the blog post and you’ll understand why.  In his blog post, Chris asks his readers to publish their own 3 words.  So here goes:

My 3 words for 2012 are:   Filter. Focus. Fun.

I didn’t mean to make them all start with the same letter, but it’s really easy to remember and with fun on the end, so far, every time I say it, it makes me smile. 🙂

What are your 3 words?
