The start of a new year is one of my favorite seasons. I love blank calendar pages. I love setting resolutions and picking a word for the year. I even love reading productivity books and listening to podcasts. But I do think there’s something missing from the advice they give. It isn’t “one size fits all.” It doesn’t always fit special-needs families like us.
That’s why I’m offering a webinar with goal setting tips and advice for families like ours. We don’t move through seasons the way other families do. We face more unknown factors when looking toward the future. But the systems we put in place now will help us no matter what comes next week or next fall.
Here are some of the topics we’ll cover:
- Evaluating 2018 and learning from what we experienced
- Writing a family mission statement
- Learning when to say yes and no
- Developing routines that work
- Setting goals that will make your future self happy
