Goal: Start an Adventure

Part of the Goals 2010 Challenge Series, Goal 3

One of my long-term goals is to create new adventures for myself! For the past six months, I have been through some amazing journeys and met some amazing people, because I said yes and participated! These include traveling to Paris, Berlin, and Poland for conferences and meeting my Personal Learning Network (PLN) face-to-face. Saying, “Yes!” has resulted in many opportunities I never knew existed and I have learned so much. Everyone has something to offer and the way social media works is you have to participate and volunteer. Many of my family members thought I was crazy to do this, but now they are extremely supportive and joke of living vicariously through me.

  1. Congratulations Deena!

    My sister did the program and had some success with it until she had to suddenly move and quit the program. Our personal goals and those striving for health are as important as our professional goals. That is a great initiative.
