Here we go again! Another year, another chance to make plans for the year. My family does not do new years resolutions. We do goals for the year. We each have a personal goal, an education goal, a travel goal, and a BHAG (big harry audacious goal) that seems unreachable. We write them down at the first of the year and put them on the side of the fridge so we can remember them. A goal gives us something to work towards. We help our kids develop steps to get to their goals over the month of January and how we are going to put those steps into action. It helps them to learn the planning and the small steps it takes to reach something. My personal goal for this year is to go out once a month with friends (which can be difficult with my schedule). My education goal for the year is to get another NEF certification (yay education!). My travel goal is to go to a place where I can see a Beluga whale (my favorite animal). My BHAG is to get my CAPM certification (education, again!). Any goal, small or big, gives you something to work for and a feeling of accomplishment when it is done. Consider what you want for this upcoming year and try to set some goals that will make you feel accomplished over the 2022 year.
Speaking of accomplishments, we had a great December 2021. Our Christmas party at LBMC was a great time where we got to play a few games and eat ALOT of food. Our December meeting with Deb taught us about business etiquette and some of the mistakes that are commonly made.
More committee updates are below, but I want to ask again if anyone is willing to lead the nominating committee. This involves reaching out and vetting new board members for the 22-23 year. Nominating committee will start kicking off hard in February and will go until the beginning of June, so please let us know if this is something you are interested in.
Thank you for being great, engaging, members! Please do not hesitate to reach out to Tiffany or me if there is anything you need.
