Three Words for 2016

Chris Brogan was my first teacher of social media by way of his books. He is very smart in my opinion, and constantly evolves. One of his practices for which he is now very well known is finding three words to inspire at the first of every year. To replace resolutions, the words are meant to inspire and represent goals.  On January 1 Chris will drop his words, as is his custom, for the eleventh year in a row.  Well done, Brother Brogan.  I know I am not the only one who appreciates your leadership in this exercise.  Three is plenty if they are kept alive daily for an entire year.  That is the idea of having only a few….. no excuse not to work on them.   I am looking forward to a happy and fun 2016.  My words are:

  1. Independence
  2. Simplicity
  3. Adventure

I plan to combine forces with a wonderful woman I met in Phoenix by chance.  She makes the best artisanal sauerkraut I have ever tasted.  The Garden Goddess was planning to expand her distribution to Pima County, where I live, when we met.  There are some logistical issues to work out, but we are looking at an arrangement that is extremely simplistic and independent.  I am very interested in the teaching part of the concept because I have become a fermented foods crusader and believer.  I am reading books and experimenting like a mad scientist  in my own kitchen as well as eating Suzette’s kraut daily.  This is a very exciting adventure for me.  I know most people might not be so turned on about teaching others to make their own sauerkraut, but I feel a complete sense of mission to teach the world to ferment raw food and feel so much better.  Fermented foods themselves are a simple, independent adventure you can enjoy at home.  It is an explosive and exciting new hobby/passion I look forward to cultivating in 2016.

I love your three chosen words. I could never pick just one but I think these 3 words definitely describe your goals and life. I think it’s the essence of the direction in which you are going! That plus the fermented foods (which I will be watching for updates)
