In a world so full of commitments, it is an absolute must to consider your own priorities and work from there. My number one priority was, is and will be my family. I put them first and make sure they are taken care of. As commitments pile one on top of the other, sometimes it is easy to lose sight of your number one priority because deadlines are looming and you are just buried in work. Ask yourself “what is more important in the long run?”
I am a live long learner. I learn every day. There is so much to learn! So, I have a plan what I want to learn in the New Year. One of my big goals is to learn how to self-publish a book. I already signed up for a challenge to make sure I stick with it and have the accountability. I got several books that I want to read about the topic as well. Naturally, I am looking into social media and connect with like-minded people in that industry. Additionally, I will be teaching several classes. You know you have learned something well once you can teach it to others. In 2014, I will teach computer coding for the first time to preteens. I am sure I will have a great learning and teaching experience.
Plans are all great. But they are just plans and nothing happens with them unless you do something. This is where the action comes in. Plan what you want to achieve and then act on it. Don’t overthink. Even in the Kindle Challenge, there is a lot of talk about getting it done. Sometimes you just have to do it to make it happen.
