Follow-up to @Sloan and @Denari previous COTs to share my “Word of 2021” — “ACTION”.   While I seem to always have good intent to do/accomplish something, I am very good at “putting it off until tomorrow…or next week…month…etc.”.  Holding myself, and each other, accountable, I plan to keep the word “action” top of mind as a reminder to not wait and to take action while I think about whatever it is I’m intending to do (family, personal, work).  @Sloan reminded us of tbe QSource term for this as “manana is a crackpipe”.
