Companies have logos, schools and sports teams uniforms and mascots, countries flags... they pick something to stand for what they're trying to showcase. Why not you?!
Each year I choose a word(s), and for the last few years a color, to represent the year ahead and I encourage the Mappers who take my workshop to do the same when they're creating theirs. I got the above picture from a friend who was at the January workshop and she chose Vitality and the color Violet for her 2014 theme. She was excited to show me how these shoes represent what she is creating for herself this year. Would she have gotten some new shoes anyway? Maybe, but when we theme projects and endeavors I think we give them an extra kick (pun intended).
Another friend/Mapper is going with the theme: Faith, Friends, Fun, Fitness with the color Fuchsia. They both picked colors that had same letter as their words (mine doesn't) but to get into having a theme for your year I highly recommend having a word and color that you love together.
Mapping out our year is by far the most important step but after you know what you want why not summarize it in a word and color and then get out there and go create an amazing 2014!
My color: What's yours?
