So . . . I sort of like this video blogging thing (vlogging, I believe, is the actual term). After I get beyond the fact that I look like a doofus, it’s sort of fun to experiment with the medium. I might do it more in 2017, or I might not. We’ll see.
Today’s video post is about that very thing: goals for the new year. Actually, that’s not true. It’s about reviewing what my goals were for 2016. Step one of setting new goals is checking in with how you did with your old goals.
A few things I want to mention. First, this post, A Summit of One, by my colleague Rosie Molinary, is a terrific resource for reflecting on your year and thinking about the upcoming year. I highly recommend!
Secondly, in the video below, I mention that finding “the loving reason” behind things was one of my goals for 2016. I neglected to mention that this idea comes from my brilliant friend and writing colleague, Kate Hanley. This is one piece she’s written about looking for the loving reason (though I’ve been hearing her talk about it for years—she is my go-to person for it)!
So, the first video below is me recapping 2016 goals. The second is a bonus video of me tumbling. I figure I can’t just tell you about how fun it was to meet one of my goals. I should show you. You’ve been warned.
And now, for the bonus video!
Have a great rest of 2016!
