Every New Years, I end up setting goals for myself. May it be personal or professional I am a goal setter, sometimes I meet my goals and other times they fall to the way side. This year starting a new decade I find it more important to truly look at where I am coming from and where I would like to go. I think sometimes I set too many goals and I get overwhelmed, so here are two goals I really want to keep.
Goal 1: Enjoy my family & friends
I want to make sure that I don't let life get in the way of truly enjoying my family and friends! I cannot believe Will is already 9 months and Jori is in Kindergarten. Finding the balance between family, work, projects, conferences, my PLN, and other passions can be tedious. The key for me is going to be to prioritize and not do so much that I can't enjoy anything. I am actually presenting at Educon 2.2 with @thespian70, @tcmgrath, and @lorisheldon on this very topic. It has been something I have been interested in talking about for a very long time. So here is family & friends and enjoying the time I have with them!
Goal 2: Blog, Blog, Blog
First and fore most blogging is something I have always wanted to do, but I end up failing at it. My excuses always seem to be I don't feel like I am a very good writer, but what is the best way to become a better writer...WRITE! I also have some other motivation in that my wife, Michelle Lutz @mrsblutz01 on twitter has started her own blog and is writing her second entry next to me. I also, have started doing the 365 pictures in a year challenge, in a way that is a blog within in itself. My other focus of this blog will be to share technology integration tips with the teachers I coach and others who would like to read my blog.
So here on January 3rd 2010, I am starting Goal 1 and 2 by posting a blog. Hopefully it will continue!
