New year. New energy.
Since this is the time of year we’re all usually thinking about goals or our intentions for the year, our CEO Tamika shares with us a few goals, commitments, and feelings that have been on her mind. Plus, we asked our team members to share their word of the year for 2024. Keep scrolling through to see what everyone had to say.
“After the year that 2023 was, the first goal or commitment that comes to mind for me is creativity or creation. As somebody who enjoys creating, I know that you need to have time and spaciousness in order to be creative or learn or find new ways to be creative. And honestly, I don’t know about you, but for me, 2023 was a year of putting out fires. And when you’re putting out fires, you do not have spaciousness to be creative and focus on building or growing or creating something really awesome or new.
So I’m really excited about next year because there’s going to be some really cool opportunities to be creative in the year. I think in order to have the inspiration to create and be creative, you have to have some sort of balance.
Balance is another commitment I have for next year. And I know so many of us in business or as entrepreneurs are not so great at that. The word balance, and I don’t mean a 50-50 balance, but just some sort of balance between personal life and business life. Which, I think, will help open the doors for creativity. I don’t know exactly what that looks like, but I’m working on trying to map that out.
My third point, commitment or feeling or goal for 2024, is focus. In order to have balance, you’ve got to have laser focus on what needs to be done and what does not need to be done, what you need to say yes to and what you need to say no to. I think I’m good with focus, but like so many of us, we can get distracted and pulled in many directions. I want to hone in on that focus in 2024 and be unapologetic about where I need to be focused.
