Goals for February 5-11, 2017

Decided to start a new project this week. It doesn’t have a name yet but involves t-shirts, healthy lifestyle and helping kids. This will be fun because I intend to use Pat Flynn’s “Will It Fly” process.

It is finally warming up! With the emergence of our neighborhood sidewalks from the recent ice age, actually took my dog on a couple of walks. Yes, I still almost fell down a couple times. And yes, my feet were wet by the end. But it was awesome to get outside!

Goals for this week:

  • Publish weekly goals
  • Add three more relevant people to LinkedIn
  • Comment on a Feedly article
  • Comment on a LinkedIn article or post
  • Post “Instagram” to Facebook, Linked In and Twitter
  • Take notes on Will It Fly process
    • Complete Mission Design
  • Can video become a regular part of one of my business’s promo tools?

Took an online Udemy Class (Learning to write faster at work). For $25 it was a decent investment. Learned a few things, though a lot of it was common sense. More importantly it showed a minimum level of teaching that can be done to create a course. This is very good news! I think I can do something similar in the future and now have a better understanding.

FYI, here is a link to the class I took. I gave it four stars because it was pretty complete and did a good job of using real examples. It wasn’t a five star because the beginning part seemed to be a bit out of order and didn’t set up as well as it could have. And it would have been great to finish the course with an actual time line that laid out how long each task was taking her. www.udemy.com/how-to-write-faster-at-work/learn/v4/overview
