Happy New Year 2023!
To ensure this year doesn't ski into the mediocrity of the past few years, I have adopted three words to guide my priorities in 2023:Care.
In longer words:
* Work with passion. Do what matters to you. Change something for the better.
* Think bigger. Take more (smarter) risks.
* Invite more people into your sphere, and ensure that all share the resulting benefits and impact.
Former Toronto-based entrepreneur Kunal Gupta (Polar Mobile, etc., now living and working in Portugal) has gone me one better. He chooses just one word a year to serve as his North Star and guide the ways he approaches life. Last year, his word was "Open." (You can read here how that worked out for him.) For Kunal, this year's word is "Build."
Kunal has also asked cavassed other entrepreneurs and leaders to identify the words most meaningful to them. If you're looking for a Word of the Year, (or maybe even three), you're bound to find your North Star on this list.
Which word is your favourite?
