New Year’s Resolutions Again?

Yes, it’s that time of year. If I think about a new year as an opportunity to write some exciting and worthwhile pages in the book of my life, then I have a healthy attitude. It is never too late to try and make the year ahead of me even better than the one that came before. (Last year was a hard one, so this one should be better.)

If I choose attainable goals and avoid resolutions like winning the lottery, I will feel a sense of accomplishment each time I cross one off my list.

Here are just a few attainable goals that you might wish to consider:
  • Get more sleep whenever possible.
  • To avoid frantic mornings, prepare for the next day on the night before. 
  • The night before, prepare your lunch or decide where you will eat lunch.
  • Set out your keys, coat, shoes, briefcase or purse and a reminder note about your lunch.
  • Leave your desk at work organized and tidy. Write reminders on Post-it Notes.
  • Write a list of absolutely necessary To Do’s and cross them off as you complete them.
  • If you have way too many essays to grade, don’t take them all home at once. Complete them in increments depending on what you have going on in your private life at the time.
  • Plan, plan, plan. Have a plan, know your plan, work your plan.

Remember that you are human and not a robot. You can only do what you can do.  
Teachers have a really challenging job. Teachers are amazing. Teachers are changing the world one child at a time. 

I hope both your new year and your Valentine's Day are enjoyable.
