Today's new technologies require a shorter attention span when it comes to goals. With traditional goal setting we tend to aim for a distant target, one we can...ummm...put off and do at the last minute close to the deadline.
A blogger in my Professional Learning Network (PLN) has challenged us to accomplish 30 goals in 30 days.
"What?!" you may say. "That's ridiculous."
Actually it's something I've been thinking about recently, the quick pace that learning in a PLN occurs is so radically different from anything I've every experienced. It requires releasing the notion of set plans, 3-5 year goal setting. Things change so fast...seemingly day by day, hour by hour and in some cases it seems minute-to-minute.
It's because someone can quickly send you a link that can challenge and/or change your thinking on a specific topic.
30 goals in 30 days. I bet I'll be blogging about it soon.
