Word for 2021!

Do you have a word for your 2021?  Back in 2017 I started to have one word for my year.  It’s one word I could focus on every day. The one word could sum up who I wanted to be, how I wanted to live, or what I wanted to do.

When I started the Planner project, back in 2018 this exercise had to be included in the Planner because it became my northern star, the compass for my year.  For the last 3 years in the Planner group we have been sharing and using our word for the year.

And we discovered, if you let it, your one word will shape not only your year, it will also shape you. Be careful which word you choose – it can take on a life of its own!  


You can’t break a word as you could a goal!


Here’s my four easy steps to finding yours:-



WRITE DOWN the first thing that comes into your head when you think of a Word.

Some words to get your juices going could include COURAGE, MORE, EFFORTLESS, ABUNDANCE, GRIT, BALANCE, JOY, ENERGY, GRATITUDE, THRIVE



LOOK UP the Word on Google and find the dictionary definition (and what the opposite means).  Search hashtags on Instagram and Pinterest and see if it feels right for your year.



THINK HOW the WORD impacts your life in the following areas:-  


My Self care

With my Family & Friends ….

My finances  …

My Business ….

Life Planning  …

Learning ….

Habits ….

My Health ….



CHOOSE your WORD and write in down your Planner and share here.


Once you have decided on your word, surround yourself with reminders.  

  • Create a Pinterest board
  • Add images to your screensaver and phone screen, update your passwords to include the word.  
  • Look for images and quotes which encompass your Word.
  • Follow hashtags on Instagram.
  • Create a Facebook Collection with the Word and save videos and quotes to your collection.  
  • Search for books and blogs which help support you to make it happen.
