This year, I have combined two goal setting practices: one word and 20 for 20. For several years, I have selected one word as focus for the year. I’ve chosen relish, intentional, and others I can’t remember. (That shows it hasn’t been super impactful if I can’t recall the words!) Last year I tried 19 for 19 based on Gretchen Rubin’s idea in her podcast Happier. I think I was able to check 7 things off my list last year, which isn’t great, but is a start. So this year, I decided to merge the two! I have selected the one word connect and my 20 for 20 list ties to ways I can connect.
I am working to connect more with God, myself, my family, friends, teachers/students, and nature. One additional practice that I have incorporated is a monthly reflection with my word and my 20 for 20 list. It’s time to for my March reflection. How am I doing? What ways have I connected with myself and others? What things need to move to the top of my list?
Glows–writing everyday, started a blog, planned an outing with a friend, encouraged the new teachers and 5th grade team, planned a family vacation, volunteered at church
Grows–write a handwritten note to a friend, go hiking, set up a lunch with high school friends, memorize another verse,
Now off to make the most of this day and connect!
