Recently Components Company’s leadership gifted employees with a little red book entitled “One Word That Will Change Your Life.” The concept of the book is to guide the reader through a process to help him or her discover their one word that will become the theme and vision for the entire year.
The One Word Process
“One Word That Will Change Your Life” works upon the premise that more than 206 million people make New Year’s resolutions every year yet most don’t follow through with them. Sometimes the resolutions are too complicated or daunting for the people who make them. “One Word” tries to simplify this concept by asking its readers to focus on a single meaningful word.
The book breaks down the process into three steps:
- Prepare your heart; in which the reader is encouraged to step aside from their hectic life for a moment, take a deep breath and make space to discover and embrace their word.
- Discover your word; in which simple questions are asked about the reader’s personal and professional life to help them find the word.
- Live your word; in which the authors help the reader experience their word and apply it to every aspect of their life.
The third step in the process is the most important. After the reader’s word is discovered, the book explains how to use it to improve different parts of life such as education, family and business.
