It is almost the end of August!!
Time is flying by, and at work, we are talking about the Fall Push! Crazy because it feels like I still have an AWFUL lot to learn.
One fantastic thing that I have learned from almost everyone I consider to be a mentor –
set goals and meet them!
Breaking up the calendar into smaller portions makes goals reachable. For the fall, I have made 5 vows, yes vows – and those are pretty serious! These may spark some of your own goals, you may want to do more, you may want to do less. But setting a goal that can be reached is an important step, once you break through that goal… on to the next one!
This fall is going to be great!
1. Tweet a unique person every day –
Challenge: Sometimes I feel timid and think that the person won’t value my opinion
Solution: Get rid of the fear! If the person gives a cold shoulder, then you’ll be right where you were before you contacted them.
2. Find one new, relevant blog
to follow each week –
Challenge: Carving out time to find a ‘relevant’ blog. It is easy to say – “I’ll research later!”
Solution: Mark it in your schedule!
3. Blog twice a week – at least
Challenge: Most of the time when I put off blogging it is because I feel like I don’t have interesting content to put out there for readers.
Solution: Just like #1 – get rid of the fear! You will grow as a writer by writing. Keep at it, keep the conversation flowing, and creativity will follow.
4. Post an article for our MillennialChat group once a week –
Challenge: LinkedIn is not usually in the forefront of my mind.
Solution: Put it on the schedule as a reminder and let it become a habit to check LinkedIn
5. Make one video post per month –
Challenge: Starting! A lot of the time, I think too much and get in my way of just STARTING.
Solution: Hijack the Nike slogan and JUST DO IT!
