Reverb 10 is an annual event and online initiative to reflect on your year and manifest what’s next. The end of the year is an opportunity to reflect on what’s happened, and to send out reverberations for the year ahead. I just heard about it via Buster Benson’s blog and thought it sounded like it was something worth trying out.
The idea is that each day you visit the Reverb 10 website to get a new creative prompt and then you respond to the prompt via a blog post, photo, tweet etc.
So the day 1 prompt…
Encapsulate the year 2010 in one word. Explain why you’re choosing that word. Now, imagine it’s one year from today, what would you like the word to be that captures 2011 for you?
Action is my word for 2010. I tend to be much more of a thinker than a doer, but this year I’ve put in place some deliberate attempts to ‘do’ more…. getting involved in TEDxCanberra, making an effort to connect with new people and starting a new side-project with Em (instead of just daydreaming about all the side projects we could start)! We’ve also taken some action around the house – building the deck, painting some rooms, installing the blinds. Stuff we’ve been thinking about for ages but hadn’t quite gotten around to.
For 2011, I think I’d like my word to be commitment. Jason and I are getting married in April so that’s clearly a big commitment which is going to be a big focus of next year. I’d also like to commit to a path forward for my work/future career (at least a short-medium term commitment).
So, that’s day 1… If you want to get involved too, sign up at Reverb 10.
