One Word 2016

For 2016, my one word is pursuit. There are two common definitions for pursuit: (1) the act of pursuing and (2) an activity done for pleasure.

The visualization of the act of pursuing focuses on the journey. It's one thing to have vision and a goal but the heart of the matter is the pursuit towards that goal. There will be obstacles, setbacks, and triumphs along the way. Rather than focusing merely on the end goal, I want to be more mindful of the pursuit. The process. The journey. This is where the learning occurs and happens along the way.

Besides the act of pursuing, the definition also includes activities done for enjoyment which speaks to my larger goal of balance. In 2016 I want to focus more on things outside of work that bring enjoyment. Creating, reading, sketching, and running were all things that were limited or either non-existent in 2015. I look forward to the pursuit of these activities and enjoying the journey.
