Your 2022 Word Of The Year: How to Pick Something That Resonates With and Guides You Over The Next 12 Months

As we near the start of a new year, many of us have begun thinking about what we want to achieve over the next 12 months, and for some, picking a ‘word of the year’ is their first port of call. 

When we can narrow down everything we want to accomplish into just one word, that can become our guiding light throughout the year; our North Star that promises to not only keep us on track with our goals, but can also play a role in decision-making over the coming months. 

The only problem is, picking just one word to encapsulate everything we want to achieve can be overwhelming in itself. Is it even possible to narrow our dreams down to such a degree? More importantly, is it really necessary?

In this episode, Matt Johnson returns to the show to share how he’s gotten better at defining his word of the year, and how it’s impacted his business.

“The whole point of a ‘word of the year’ is to find something that resonates with you and brings up emotion.”

-Matt Johnson
