My 2014 Word of the Year



Sarah Leonard of ACatLikeCuriosity challenged the Curiously Gorgeous Sisterhood to choose  a word for 2014.  My word is ---
FOCUS!

My thesaurus lists the following synonyms:
Emphasis
Attention
Effort
Concentration
Motivation
Application
Single-mindedness

I want to focus intently on certain challenges and problem areas in 2014 -- monetizing scraps, expanding my vintage shop, Aunt Pheba’s Vintage, adding new items to Pasque Flower Creations, and re-focusing my efforts to exercise and eat healthy foods. 

In order to focus, I will need to limit distractions.  I will try to limit computer time to scheduled times each day (eventually), so that I can focus on production for uninterrupted blocks of time, and not be sucked into the vortex by tantalizing posts on Facebook, Pinterest, and blogs.

I’m afraid my focus may remain a little blurry until after tax season.

    1. Thanks, Duni! I may try to adopt your one hour time limit -- probably in two 30-minute sessions.

  3. Great word! Focusing is always good. My mom always warned us against being "scatter brained" :)

    1. Ha.Ha. I'm guilty of being scatter-brained sometimes, hence the need to focus. My grandmother's term was flibberty-jibbet.

  4. Focus is a great word for the new year. I have been pondering what word I want for this year and I have yet to come up with something that works. I will keep thinking about it, I want to have on before the end of the month. Thanks for the inspiration.
