Every year Arrow’s personal and professional development coach, Michael Buckley, asks everyone to pick a “Word of the Year.” The goal is to look inward and consider what we each need more of and what might improve our lives. Sometimes we need more focus or clarity. Sometimes we need more compassion. Sometimes we just need more fun!
Picking a word for both me and my community is a commitment to doing work on yourself and the “we” and “us” work we want to do as a community.
Looking back on 2022, I’m extremely proud of our staff and the dedication they have exhibited throughout the year. Their hard work and efforts are greatly appreciated. In addition, I’m thankful for the new staff that have joined The Madison team.
Now, looking forward to 2023, what The Madison Senior Living needs is perseverance. This is an essential quality for achieving success, requiring the team to stay focused on our objectives and passions when faced with challenges. Over the past couple of years COVID has changed many aspects in the world we live in. Due to these noted changes, we were confronted with new challenges and opportunities. As an organization, perseverance is critical in terms of staying the course regarding the community’s vision and mission.
At the forefront of our 2023 objectives will be the core value of perseverance. It’s a given that life consistently provides us with challenges. Perseverance will be a predominant core value utilized to confront challenges with optimism and to identify innovative solutions that are aligned with our organization’s objectives.
What is YOUR WORD? I hope you will pick one too. What does your life need a little more of in 2023? What does “future you” thank you for working on now? Our words are meant to inspire us. If it is not inspiring, it’s not the right word.
And if you are reading this, please hold us accountable. When you visit The Madison Senior Living or come to town hall, ask us what our word of the year is and what have we done to support it.
Please look forward to the December 2023 blog where we tell you all the ways we lived in line with our word of the year and all the ways it helped improve our community.

Did you know “The Twelve Days of Christmas” is quite a unique song? Besides the fact the singer’s true love gives a lot of very bird-heavy gifts, it has a long and interesting history. The first written documentation of the song was in an English children’s book from 1780 titled Mirth With-Out Mischief and the […]
