Food For Thought Friday: Forget Resolutions, All You Need is #OneWord

Nicole Stulak, K-5 Instructional Coach

At a time when many of us are neglecting our New Year’s Resolutions and goals for the year ahead, maybe all we really need is one word.

The inspiring #OneWord concept is based on the book One Word That Will Change Your Life by Jon Gordon, Dan Britton and Jimmy Page. You can check out the One Word That Will Change Your Life Video here.

This powerful, yet simple idea has you select one word to focus on, a word that says who you want to be and how you want to live your life. One word that you invest your energy in and acts as a guide as you make decisions and go about your every day. One word that drives your goals and aspirations instead of lists of resolutions that often are time-sensitive, forgotten or never kept.


The #OneWord movement has the power to positively influence classroom culture and has gained momentum on social media as teachers and students return to school this month, ready to tackle the year ahead. Check out these hashtags #oneword2017 #OneWord #oneword365 and the links below to see how one word can make a BIG impact.
