The UN-word is a word that you are rejecting for the new year. You would like to Un-Do it.
I have one little word for 2014 - Evolve. I am a big fan of the one little word so my anti one little word for 2014 or un-word would be the opposite of evolve. Of course my mind goes to combust but I am picking STUCK. You can't evolve if you are STUCK. I have actually had the quote below on my blog side bar FOREVER -
"You can’t make footprints in the sands of time if you’re sitting on your butt. And who wants to make butt prints in the sands of time?"- Bob Moawad
I think some people thinks it takes a monumental effort to get unstuck. I have found that not necessarily true. I think if you make a little change or little effort it generates energy for movement. Stuck is what I am avoiding this year -Stuck in my thoughts, Stuck in my rut of life, Stuck in not trying and taking risks.
Things that help me from getting stuck or how I un-stick myself
1. Play the game of "What is the worst thing that can happen?"
2. Get moving (physically) Get off the computer! Get off your butt! When I am more active, my brain is clearer.
3. Old military trick I have - I can do anything or almost anything for a set amount of time. I use to say when I was doing the physical fitness test. I can do this for 18 minutes. Because after 18 minutes, I am done. Sometime timelines are good. They push us to do the unpleasant task and sometimes after we are done we say, "That isn't too bad." Sometimes 1 little unpleasant task stands in the way of a truly great opportunity.
4. Get Creative! When I am being creative, I am less likely to be stuck. I take risks. Sometimes the risks propel me forward.
