Every time I hear the word ACTION, I find myself silently chanting:
ACTION! ACTION! We want ACTION! A-C-T-I-O-N!
No, I wasn’t a cheerleader. (I’ve got no hand-eye coordination. I fall down just thinking about doing a toe-touch.) I’ve just always thought that particular cheer was a catchy little motivator.
And sometimes I NEED motivation.
I love to create plans, concoct ideas, contemplate dreams. But if I am honest, I have a tendency to talk a big game. I sit on the sidelines, perfecting plays, coveting others’ talents, simply stalling…a virtual spectator in my own life.
So when my friend Alece asked us to choose one word that sums up what we want for ourselves in 2010…I decided mine would be ACTION!
In 2010, I am going to stop talking and start doing.
So as soon as I decided my word was going to be ACTION, I DID something, two things actually. (And you thought I was all talk.) I did two things I had been dreaming about but…just sitting on.
Look at me, a star in my own little ACTION movie.
Do you have a thematic word for 2010? What is it?
