And the best way to keep moving forward in what has been a challenging year is to set reasonable goals and celebrate wins in October daily. These can be small wins, big wins, personal and professional. Everything counts, it’s making lunch or making progress on a project. I will be keeping track and cheering you on via The D*E*B Method social media pages – Facebook, Twitter, Instagram. And sharing my own goals and wins too!
The October #GoalChat topics have been designed with surviving and thriving in mind. We will talk about loneliness, endurance (and NaNoWriMo), joy, and creativity this month. Join the Sunday Night #GoalChat Twitter chats and #GoalChatLive conversations on Monday afternoons. The recaps are on TheDEBMethod.com.
