3 Words for 2022

3 Words for 2022

I’ve been following the practice of choosing “My Three Words” at the beginning of the year for some time now. The idea comes from Chris Brogan, who started in 2006 with “Ask. Do. Share” as his guiding words for the coming year. This is how he describes the process:

The My Three Words idea is simple. Choose 3 words (not 1, not 4) that will help guide your choices and actions day to day. Think of them as lighthouses. “Should I say yes to this project?” “Well, does this align with my three words?”

The words only need to have meaning for you and that there’s no need to define them. However, I like to write a few words about each one, just so that I don’t forget what I was thinking at the time. You can check also out my 3 Words for 2021.

Making your 3 words public is good for one’s accountability and the feedback can be enlightening. So without further ado, here is this year’s collection:


While I want to continue working independently, I also need the expanded opportunities and resources that come with an extended community. I will look for openings to collaborate with others in ways that are beneficial to all.


The spaces in which I live and work are changing. Attention is needed to creating spaces that foster creativity, comfort and security.


As is true for so many people, the last couple of years have been challenging to my physical and emotional well being. It is time to repair and strengthen those areas that have been compromised or atrophied over time.
