The Year Of How: day 3 Goals



I'm joining Angie, from Lucky Little Learners, and Ashley, from Schroeder Shenanigans in 2nd, with their #2getherwearebetter monthly linky topic on goals. As you know from my New Year's day post, my theme for 2016 is HOW. Day 3 of the Year of How and #thestruggleisreal!


I've realized that there are so.many.things. I don't know how to do. I decided to set some groundwork for my theme so I got together with my more knowledgeable partner in crime, Jenn, to create some vision boards. "Begin with the end in mind," right? I was all ready to go big!

Ok, so it's still blank. What do you really expect??
So after a very productive meeting, my vision board remains blank. However, I will say, after a couple uninterrupted showers and a night of pregnancy induced insomnia, I've gained some clarity! I've come up with my plan: 

GOAL 1: Learn more about TpT, business, and technology
GOAL 2: Invest in my blog, TpT, and social media accounts
GOAL 3: Explore credentialing for Life Coach certification

My plan of attack is to try to learn as much as humanly possible....by the baby's due date in April. Ambitious? Maybe. Stupid? Probably. But day 3, and I've placed the following in place to hold me accountable:
I think that's a pretty good start. What are your goals or themes for the year? Comment below!

Happy New Year!


"Don't you just love New Year's? You can start all over." - Forrest Gump

I do love New Year's. I can't help it. Everything is sparkly, shiny, and new....

I know, I know, you're shaking your head thinking "I hate New Year's - it's overrated!" Not me. I love it.

I love it even more this year. Change is in the air. I can feel it. A few months ago I started Speckled Moose Counseling, and I'm excited to see where Teacher Entrepreneur School and blogging will take me in a few months. Aside from that, I've got a baby on the way. No big deal!

Each year, my mom decides on a theme for the year. I decided that 2016 will be the year of HOW - how do I do the things I'd like to do, how do I become more tech savvy, how do I overcome "limits" and "barriers" that are placed in my way, how do I give my time and energy to the people I most love...

The Moose and the Lab

I'm up for this challenge, and figuring out all of the "how" questions that 2016 will bring. I hope you'll join me.

What's your theme for the year?
