I hope this message finds our membership well and excited for a bright 2020! It was really great to visit with many of you at our Christmas dinner in December and I look forward to seeing you next week at our January dinner meeting! When I started 2019, I decided to make “Intentional” the word of the year; intentional with family, business, friendships, responsibilities. This word pounded in my brain daily while seeking to find new and creative ways to be intentional in all I do. Filter the static and chaos and focus on what matters most. The end result was astounding as I reflect back on 2019 and find my friendships grew by numbers and quality, business chaos became less chaotic, if you will, and quality of life with the family blossomed. I have chosen to again use “Intentional” as my 2020 word of the year and look forward to a challenging yet rewarding year.
So here is my 2020 challenge to you: What is your word of the year and how do you envision it will impact you and your career in 2020?
