What you stay focused on will grow. — Roy T. Bennett
December is drawing to a close and so is my word for 2019 and I confess, I am sad to see it end! I started with an idea of how focus would change me and over the year my word took me on a much better journey than I ever imagined!
Your life is controlled by what you focus on. — Tony Robbins
At times during the year, I lost my focus but I learned how to refocus and how to improve my focus. I learned what was important to focus on. And, more importantly – what was not important to focus on.
Always remember, your focus determines your reality. — George Lucas
But even as I join with Juliann to put my word away for 2019 and make space for a new word, focus has become a permanent part of me! A part that will continue to adjust my days – and it will influence the New Year and my new word!
You can revisit my yearlong exploration of focus:
- January: Focusing Inward
- February: Focusing on me
- March: Why Focus
- April: Refocusing
- May: Focus Realized
- June: A Making Focus
- July: An Out of Focus Month
- August: In Focus
- September: Moving Focus
- October: Autumnal Focus
- November: A Gratitude Focus

I’m glad that you’ve made focusing on focus such a success. I’m sure that a big part of it was your year-long stick-to-itiveness, and exploring what (and what not) to focus on. Congratulations and I’m looking forward to seeing what word you’ve chosen for 2020!
I have a feeling that you will continue to explore your focus in the year (and years) ahead because you have made it such an important part of your life over the past 12 months.
Like Bonny, I’m excited to see what word you choose for 2020!
Isn’t it wonderful how these words become a part of us?! I’ve really enjoyed all that you’ve shared from your OLW journey this year – thank you!
I’m impressed that you posted about it each month – I missed a few, personally. I still reflected on my word a lot, though, and it was just right for me. I’m glad yours was just right for you, too.
I love these quotes on focus and following you posts. I can’t wait to see what 2020 brings!
Look forward to see where your next word takes you.
Focus is a good word and it is nice to hear you had a good year! Happy New Year!
