Three Words for 2013

by Jamie Sanford on January 1, 2013

As mentioned in my last post, I’m working on Chris Brogan’s Brave New Year. Part of that was to come up with the 3 words to guide my year. I have had trouble with a clear vision of what I need to work on, but I think the words are more of a guide to remind me of what I’m aiming for in general in 2013, and beyond.

Here we go.


Queens take care of business – both the royal kind and the drag kind. I need to remember that I am the queen of my world and I need to keep the kingdom in check. My kingdom, my rules, my life.


I chose werk (check that Urban Dictionary link if you need more on the term) because I want to think about werking instead of working. Every time something “feels like work” I am going to remind myself that I need to werk, and that will be how I move forward. Take every opportunity to turn it into something to accomplish and celebrate, something to add to my skill set, whatever that item might be.


On Smodcast 207 (one of my favorite podcast episodes of 2012), Kevin, Scott and Bryan talked about procrastination, and someone said something along the lines of “you plan for future you, because you think future you is some perfect version of you that will want to do X thing that current you just cannot do.” Future me is just me, later. I need to remind myself that today is no different than some later date that I think is going to be the day I change. It has to be today.
