Word for the Year 2017: Discipline

16 January 2017|


I have always been a fan of a new year and a fresh start – the A-type in me loves to be organized and prepared for a new year. I love to plan, make lists and set goals for the day, week, month and year ahead. A few years ago, I found the amazing Powersheets from Lara Casey and have been following her blog and inspiration ever since.

This year is no different – I have my Powersheets ready and have started working on my goals for the year (some of Lara’s best advice is that not everything has to be done and ready on January 1st) and I cannot wait to share my goal-setting journey and my yearly and monthly goals with you.

One of the first steps of the Powersheets tasks is to choose a word for the year. A word that will inspire you and keep you motivated through all your goals and areas of life.

My word for 2017 is… Discipline.

What is your word this year? And why?



  1. Am I breaking the rules if it’s two words? I am a rebel…..My word(s) are “be brave” We board our flight to New Zealand on 30 January 🙂 Starting a brand new adventure. Exciting. And scary!
