Way back in January, did you notice how everyone seemed to be coming up with their 3-word vision for 2014? It was going to be the MOST EPIC and MOST UNBELIEVABLY FUCKING AWESOME year of their WHOLE LIFE EVER because they had three words written to describe themselves, their businesses or their hopes and aspirations for all of 2014.
I’m not going to lie: I get excited about a lot of stuff. I can be damn near evangelical when I’ve had a great experience in any way, shape or form. But there’s just something about lemming hype that gives me a special sort of pause. I’m never one to jump off a bridge just because everyone else was doin’ it, especially when it seemed impractical.
Honestly, New Year’s Day has started to really gross me out, especially as a health & lifestyle professional. It’s become a time for gimmicky fast fixes, yet quick returns to old habits. That’s not my style. So, this create-your-3-word sword exercise that will radically slay all of your shortcomings was banned from my task list in 2014.
So, I thought…
As an entrepreneur, I often set aside time to be creative and introspective about my business and how I can better fit into it. I found a writing exercise that asked me to write down the first 10 words that describe me. Nothing like a beach-y change in scenery over Independence Day to get the creative juices flowing.

Done and done. Then, I gasped when I saw the next instruction:
“Good. Now use the first three words on that list…” Sometimes, you have to eat those words.
What are YOUR 10 words? How about sharing them in the comments below?
