Are you getting ideas for what your 2024 word might be? It’s not too soon to be thinking about it!
Take some time in the next few weeks to begin listening for a new word. Here are some questions to consider.
1. What aspect of your 2023 One Word worked for you?
For my word Human, it’s been easy to categorize into tangible, quarterly goals, alternating each month with a focus on Body, Heart, or Mind.
2. What about your 2023 word was difficult?
Human is such a broad topic that it’s been hard to narrow down. It’s everywhere and touches on everything since it’s the essence of who we are.
3. Would you rather your 2024 word be something similar to or completely different from your 2023 word?
Well, I think all my words—past or future—are ultimately connected to Human. So whatever word is next will also encompass humanity in some way. But I think I’d like something a little more contained for 2024.
4. Do you need something harder/easier/more playful/more serious, etc. for 2024?
I probably could use something more playful, but I will probably choose something serious again. I can’t help myself. (But maybe I can intentionally incorporate playfulness into whatever it is, getting the best of both worlds?)
5. Do you have unfinished business with your 2023 word that could develop into a 2024 word?
Yes, I’ll always have unfinished business with Human as long as I’m here, so by default my 2024 word will inevitably be an offshoot of it.
You might even draw a sketch of your One Words from previous years (if you’ve been doing this awhile), connecting the dots from the past, and see if they lead you to a new word for the future.
Let this be a fun time of listening and exploration!
Here’s the sketch I made of my words so far. . .
