CALP Connections: January 2018
New Year… New Beginnings!
Happy 2018 to all! I hope everyone is well rested and spent some quality time with friends, family, and loved ones over the holidays.
While I had my feet up by the fire, I pondered what I would like 2018 to be. January is known to be the month for goal setting, personally and professionally.
Some of the questions I ask myself are:
- What do I want to accomplish by the end of June in my program?
- Do I need some PD to make it happen?
- If so, what type of training do I need, and when would be a good time to take it?
- How will I manage my work/life balance? How will I manage my stress level?
A personal journal is a great place to record your thoughts and goals. Your professional goals can be added to your profile on the CALP Portal under Training and Events, click on “My Learning Plan and History”. At the end of the granting year, it is a great place to refer back to and record your PD on the Final Report. Please set SMART goals: Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Reasonable, and Time Bound.
As long as the needle is moving, we are making progress. Wishing all of you great success in 2018!
