Making Things Happen: Part 4

  • Re-committing to sharing my knowledge this year. 
    • Creating lasting, quality tools at work, for friends, and even strangers to guide them through tough technology concepts. 
    • Send friendly e-mails to friends and colleagues when I come across a helpful tool.
    • Be open to receiving questions via e-mail and archive the responses. The time spent helping this person can likely help others.
  • Find an opportunity to volunteer, whether it be one time, once every couple of months or regularly. Look for organizations that could benefit from my strengths. 
  • Encourage and compliment daily. It is so easy to complain or discourage, this stuff takes time, but makes a lasting difference.

  • Making less wasteful purchases
  • First step: Looking over Mint.com and inspecting & accepting what's been spent and where. That can't be changed, but new habits CAN be started. I work hard to earn a paycheck and that money should work just as hard to create a wonderful and comfortable life for our family.
    • Transforming our family's health
      • First step: Signing up and committing to the Love Your Body Challenge over at Tone It Up. I love that this isn't just about be fitting, but truly loving your body and boosting self-confidence.
    • Mastering and maintaining my skillset
      • First step: Committing to taking Spanish this next semester, accepting that taking just one class is okay and awesome! I can always take a math class in the future. This is about making progress. 
    • "Best Day of My Life" by American Authors
    I love this song! Always make me feel happy and a great reminder to live each day to its fullest!
