Mini #141
In early January, member CathyJo,came across a new concept floating around the blogosphere: Word of the Year. The movement was started by a woman named Christine Kane.  She and a friend decided that since most New Year’s Resolutions don’t stick they wanted to try something new.  And so Word of the Year was born. In this Mini CathyJo shares how she adapted the concept to work with quarterly goals, monthly focus, and creating words for the week to move her forward.
