New Year, New Goals, New You

Many of our readers may be coming off the high of Christmas. In the US, following Christmas there are HUGE clearance sales and then a need to purge and prepare for a New Year. I’m always left feeling a bit anxious this time of year. I find myself thinking about my priorities. How can I learn more, improve myself and bring more good to the world in the upcoming year?
 
Of course, moving into the new year, many of us tighten our budget to prep for all our new year plans. Today, here are a few ways to improve yourself educationally, professionally and personally in a low cost way!

Think of it as Global Learn Day’s New Years Gift to you, our readers.

 

1. Improve your writing game.

2. Continue your Professional Development in January.

4. Live Your Truth!

Live Your Truth is a program by Carol Tuttle to help individuals learn how to dress comfortably and confidently.

This course helps you learn about yourself and in doing so many have found that they are more confident.

5. Learn a New Language!

ASL University has free online courses to help you learn a new language! American Sign Language is a fantastic and often intuitive language used widely in the Deaf and Hard of Hearing Communities. It is also useful for parents in theaters, museums, churches and virtually anywhere Silence is Golden because it is silent. This could be your year to learn a new language!

So, what are you doing in 2018! I hope we have inspired you to try new things, to learn even more and to embrace One Planet, One People in all that you do!
