word of the year | SEO & Social Media Solutions for Small Businesses | SBN Marketing | Stephanie Nelson

2020 is over. 2021 is here. And somehow, if you’re reading this, you survived the upheaval that overtook the world. That also means it’s time again to choose your word of the year.

Around this time last year, I wrote about tips and tricks for choosing your word. If you need some help choosing your word, feel free to check that out.

I reported then that I’d chosen the word “committed” as my word for 2020. At the time, I joked that it meant that I’d either remain committed to reaching my goals or I’d end up committed by driving myself crazy trying to reach my goals.

This year, I’ve chosen the word “better”. It goes hand-in-hand with my intention to focus on things I can control (read: trying to let go of my 45-year-old control freak tendencies). I’m making it a point to ask myself questions about my own actions that focus on how I, personally, can make something “better”. For instance, instead of asking “what could have made that pasta sauce better”, I’m asking myself “what ingredient(s) could I have added to the pasta sauce to make it better”. Here are a few other examples:

  • What do I need to learn to be a better business owner?
  • What can I do right now/today/in the next week to be a better friend to [choose friend]? To be a better wife?
  • What details do I need to compose better posts for my clients?
  • What can I do to make 2021 a better year than 2020 was? (This one’s kind of a joke, in the same vein as my outlook of being committed for going insane last year. I mean, 2020 was a dumpster fire. I’m not looking for the universe to say “hold my beer”, but 2021’s GOTTA be better than 2020, no matter what I do, right?!?!?!?!)
