My answer to the meme: How am I going to change the world in 2012?

Execution.

Okay when I first wrote that word, I was thinking ‘getting the job done’ and ‘doing my work’. Then, I started thinking about the word a little.. “Hopefully no one thinks I am going to try and execute anyone to change the world in 2012!”

So, I just want to clarify….
Execution (as in doing my job and completing tasks).

Last year was an AWESOME year!  My first full calendar year of work.  The year 2011 for me was full of learning, experimenting, learning from my experimenting, and then experimenting again.  And, I learned a TON!  From the things that I am passionate about, the importance of social media in advocacy, to smaller things such as the best ways to network.

In response to a call out by Lowell Aplebaum that stemmed from Maddie Grant’s post which was inspired by Craig Newmark’s mention of 16 people and organizations changing the world in 2012.

Changing the world in 2012…. for me?
Application of lessons and knowledge that I have learned the past year and a half and even before then.  I will keep learning about social media, social change and how the two fit together.  But 2012 is calling for direct action and execution from me.  Action through collaboration, volunteering, and working.

Making personal and professional deadlines, holding myself to them and executing to the best of my ability.  Realizing what I can and can not do for organizations and causes is key.

Here’s to a good 2012 that lasts longer than the Mayans predicted….

How are YOU going to change the world in 2012?
