Why? To further define the boundaries between work and personal life.
My personal word came from a few sources. Girl, Wash Your Face by Rachel Hollis and the blog post on Depth Year come to mind. I am pretty good at fulfilling promises I make to others; keeping promises I make for myself is a work in progress. My personal word is "Commit". Commit to creating a peaceful, uncluttered home, eating healthfully, moving my body more. Commit to getting more sleep and allotting realistic amounts of time to get things done on my to-do list, instead of making unrealistic "wish lists" each day. Commit to saving money to spend on experiences, not things.
At work, I feel overcommitted, hence the need for another word. For work, my word will be "Habits". I have a lot of set habits at home, especially in the morning--empty dishwasher, make coffee, pray, read--but I lack set times to complete necessary, repeating tasks that must be done to run my library program. I'm going to work on scheduling those times so that those tasks become routine, freeing myself to focus on the creative and service aspects of my job.
Here's to a productive and fulfilling 2020!
