I’ve been writing a My Three Words post every year since 2013.

If you don’t know what it is all about, check out this post for context 👉 About My Three Words


For me, 2020 included a lot of the same things as everyone else: uncertainty, anxiety, concern, frustration, and anger.

While most of these were emotions brought about by externalities, my own personal trip around the sun included some notable events and challenges.

This year, my mother passed away, my daughter was born, and I started a brand new business. My journeys into the lands of fatherhood and solopreneurship have been extremely rewarding though not without serious challenges. I've had to grow in a variety of ways and I'm happy to say that, largely, I've managed these transitions effectively.

Mostly, I want 2021 to be a continuation of some of the things that worked well for me in 2020. I think I've found three great words to shape the year.

Here are my three words for 2021:


Movement is a word that will carry a triple meaning for me in 2021.

In 2021, I want to stay active, so I will engage in movement.

In 2021, I will build a movement of people who want to use their time at work and off work to make the world a kinder, safer, and more equitable place. I haven't spent nearly enough time building my community. I need to focus on enrolling people in this concept of superheroism in business and at home. My Facebook group is small and mighty, and I want to add to it. My email list is far too small, and it's entirely my own fault for not promoting myself.

In 2021, I will be a vocal advocate for and an ardent supporter of the movements that seek to protect people's civil rights, and that work to create a peaceful and equitable world. I will use whatever platform I have to amplify the efforts of those who are putting in the work on behalf of humanity.

2021 is about Movement.


Though it happened midway through the year, 2020 was the year I started getting really serious about my habits. 2021 is the first year where I will be starting out the year focused on habits.
