Although I usually come up with my words in August (the beginning of the "year" for me, as an educator), I really like this idea. I'm not one for resolutions, but I am one for goal setting, and like the idea of focusing on 3 words. I have two this year, but will work on adding a 3rd.

Thanks for sharing +martin shervington

What will be your 3 words for 2015?
I did this last year. And am working on mine today...

Thanks +Chris Brogan 
#Brave   #NewYear2015  
Since 2006, I’ve been inviting people to shift how they approach their year and how they frame their goals and intentions. I created the “My 3 Words” exercise because most resolutions aren’t especially helpful. We decide something vague like “I’ve gotta get in shape” or “I’ve gotta quit smoking” or “I need to make more …

Rather than just having a general goal of getting back in shape, I decided to put some intention behind what I am doing (along with getting in shape). My body will be ready to complete a triathlon and surf by the summer of 2016. Both are on my "dream board", as is hitting National Parks, so I could add hiking to the list too.

Thanks for your encouragement +John Laine +Chris Fink +Neil Elliott +Albert Yates +Brock Hatfield +Justin Miller!

On the short journey to my in-laws for dinner I see the snow we had has pretty much cleared off the pavements, what better way to start the year than a nice run this evening :-)

Not sure that Animator would be number one in my book, but it is cool, and animators do use math!
 
SERIOUSLY COOL CAREERS THAT NEED MATHS

№1 - ANIMATOR
As well as cool jobs at Disney and Pixar, animators can work in computer and console game development, television programming, broadband internet animation, broadcast and web advertising, education, research, and military and corporate training.

An Animator uses linear algebra to show the way that an object is rotated and shifted and made larger and smaller.

Thank you notes are essential! Personal expressions of appreciation!
 
Not sure how often you write #thankyou notes, but consistently writing them, will literally change the way you do business with your #clients, #prospects, and #business partners. In my most recent blog http://buff.ly/1AeTjge post, I share 5 things that I always do with my #thankyoucards that get me the biggest impact. You can learn from them and do the same... you'll be amazed with the responses that you receive back. Thanks, Brandon.

I admittedly need to read this. I have an ingrained paranoia that my Thank You notes are inherently flimsy which makes me hesitate to send anything more than just a simple Thank You.
Thanks ;) for the post!

Many great moments doing #HourofCode this past week. Not sure how I feel about this one: "Can we just do #hourofcode for the rest of the year?" Considering they are learning to program robots, I was a bit taken aback. Once the robots are competing, they might take over the love of #CodeCombat .

One of my favorite parodies so far. Right up there with Straight No Chaser's parody of All About that Base.
 
NASA is "all about that space, 'bout that space (space travel)" in a new music video recently released by the space agency.
