My Word for the Year

Friday, January 6, 2017

We're almost there. We've almost made it through the first week of 2017.

How did you do?

Did you tackle to-do lists like a boss? Did you go to the gym every day? Did you start working on your book?

If not, that's OK. Give yourself a bit of grace.

Grace -- that's my word for 2017.

Grace is my word for the year because I need a reminder to be gentle with myself, because sometimes I need to give myself a break and others the benefit of doubt.

This doesn't meant 2017 won't be the year of the hustle. I plan to work harder than I ever have before to make all of my 2017 dreams come true.

But sometimes gumption and grit aren't enough. Sometimes you need grace.

Sometimes you can't rely solely on willpower. Sometimes you need a higher power. If you're a person of faith, perhaps that power is God. If not, perhaps that power is a belief in your muse or a belief in the causes you defend. Whatever it may be, believe in something bigger than yourself. Believe that this power will give you all you need to do the things you need to do. Believe this power will give you grace.

What's your word for the year?

A IEEE Domain project Final Year Projects for CSE system development life cycle is essentially a phased project model that defines the organizational constraints of a large-scale systems project. The methods used in a IEEE DOmain Project systems development life cycle strategy Project Centers in India provide clearly defined phases of work to plan, design, test, deploy, and maintain information systems.

    This is enough for me. I want to write software that anyone can use, and virtually everyone who has an internet connected device with a screen can use apps written in JavaScript. JavaScript Training in Chennai JavaScript was used for little more than mouse hover animations and little calculations to make static websites feel more interactive. Let’s assume 90% of all websites using JavaScript use it in a trivial way. That still leaves 150 million substantial JavaScript Training in Chennai JavaScript applications.
