A good stopping point is a place where you can pause a project that is not yet complete. You can come to a “good stopping point” when cleaning your room or working in the yard. You want to get to a place where you can take a break.

Good stopping points also mean that you can pick up where you left off- often with fresh energy or a fresh perspective.

As we get ready to ring in 2023, don’t forget to put a bow on 2022. Otherwise, we run the risk of dragging our past right into the future. Finishing the year doesn’t mean that everything is complete. It just means that we have arrived a good stopping point. A place where you can look back and make some plans about what to do next about where you are.

The end of year provides us with a good stopping point. I hope that you will take advantage of this “stopping point” to allow you to look back at where you have been and take some great steps from where you are. Finishing well helps us to start strong.

This year, use the month of January as preparation for the new year- one whole month to slow down and prepare for the next eleven. So when the ball drops and this year comes to a close, it will be a new year. Consider joining us as we share the process of picking our words and prepare for the journey with our words in 2023.

We have just released the My One Word Shared Experience which guides you through the process, so grab a few friends and share the process together. We will be updating this blog and you can follow along with Mike’s teaching, at Port City Church, as we share the process of picking our words together. You can stay connected here and on our social media platforms and we’d love to hear from you by dropping a comment.
