I know this title sounds a little bit a la Jiminy Cricket but that’s just how it came to me and it’s sticking!  Last week, a reader asked me how I come up with these Tuesday Tasks.  Well, I don’t really come up with them so much as they come up to me.  And usually, they show their faces on the previous day.  This particular task is a shout out to reader, Tina Lane, who inspired me by her comment on Sunday’s post.

When I started this blog and decided to post a weekly task to help you balance, organize, de-clutter and create I wondered how it was all going to work out.  Turns out it’s working out just like everything else in life.  Put out the intention, do your work, and let the magic happen.

For those of you just tuning in, you can find all of the previous Tuesday Tasks here.

And now, for the FIRST TUESDAY TASK OF 2012!!!  I’d like you to answer the following question with one word.  Let it be the first word that springs to mind. 

What do you want to see more of in 2012?

Let that word be your guide.  Write it out everywhere you can.  Jot it down on a post-it note and stick it on your computer screen.  Tack it to your bulletin board.  Paint it on a canvas and prop it up in your creative space.  Break out your crayons and set the word loose in colour – put it up on your fridge, or any other household appliance for that matter.  Keep it in a desk drawer at your office so every time  you reach for your stapler you remember what you are really looking for this new year.       

Can your word change throughout the year?  I hope so!  I think change indicates movement and it’s always more fun to move than be stagnant.  Follow the first word and see where it leads.  If your word changes, be sure to do this task again!

My word is happiness.  I want happiness to permeate every cell of my being, every item on my to-do list, every relationship, every moment.  What about you?  Care to share your word?  We’d love to hear it!

Have a great Tuesday, everyone!
