Making goals is easy…the challenge comes in actually making them happen.
My goals this year aren’t exciting. They aren’t earth shattering. They are, however, going to be accomplish-able, which to me, is the whole point. Some build on things from the fall semester. Some are in conjunction with accountability from my friends, my peers, my PLN. I like sharing my goals on the blog, it helps hold me accountable and allows me to reflect upon the past years (2104, 2012) to see where I have fallen short, and where I have had success. Both are important pieces to moving forward.
Here are my expectations for 2015:
- Complete the Am-centered bucketlist created with Melinda Miller. (She’ll have an MM version!) This bucketlist will be full of activities and challenges that we’ll complete throughout the year that keep our energy and purpose aligned to what will keep us true to who we are. There’ll be just as many leadership tie-ins as there are mommy/wife ones. Balance! No more idle yes’s, or wasted moments. We’re going to be FOCUSED, and have a bucketlist to help keep it all in front of us. (we’ll share that when we are done!)
- Read more. I dropped the Goodreads ball late in the year, but am excited to begin afresh with 2015. I expect to read more in 2015…and will document each book in Goodreads. Follow my progress here.
- Document. Schedule. Write it down. I expect to STAY on top of things! One of the ways I plan on maintain this semblance of completing expectations is to utilize my Erin Condren planner. I have high aspirations of being a scheduling machine, and bought new colored pens just to make that more fun. Want an Erin Condren of your very own? Here’s a coupon!
- Connect with friends, near and far. 2014 was trip and friend filled. I was so lucky to see so many of the PLN people I now consider friends. While I don’t have as many national events on my radar this year, I do expect to cultivate those relationships. Taking a page from one of my Voxer bf’s, surprise happy mail is a great way to make sure those I hold dear know that I am thinking of them.
May your 2015 be filled with your goals, your expectations, and all the things YOU want to accomplish. Anything I can do to help with your expectations?
