Episode 180: Why picking a “word of the year” can help you get laser focused on priorities (and why my own word for 2022 will give YOU more time for the things and people who matter most to YOU)
This week, I’m sharing why having a word of the year can be important for really zeroing in on your most important priorities, and why my own “word of the year,” can give YOU more time for the priorities and people who matter most to YOU.
HOW THIS WEEK’S TOPIC RELATES TO INFLUENCE: Building and sustaining influence has many dimensions. One of the most important — perhaps THE most important — is learning to manage ourselves. That means knowing when and where we spend our time in order to have the greatest impact. Another key to building influence is forging strong, mutually beneficial connections that grow into real relationships. Both of these things require that we carve out time (and SPACE), and make the proactive, conscious effort needed to grow our networks and create valuable connections.

JOCELYN GLEI QUOTE REFERENCED: “In design, white space is negative space. It’s not blank space because it has a purpose. It is balancing the rest of the design by throwing what is on the page (or screen) into relief. The white space helps you focus your visual attention.”
