Hello 2020. Here’s to changes.
2019 ended with a new child for me. My first. And oh boy is it incredible. I want to dive into 2020 with a new energy to support him and grow personally and professionally. He has taught me so much already, but there’s always more.
My goals this year are:
More effective communication: This means both professionally and at home. Professionally I’d like to grow as a public speaker, really focus on story telling in my designs and get better at drawing. (I know, that’s been on my list since I can remember)
Disconnect from tech to connect more with people: I’m trying to get less compulsive with checking my phone. Last year I turned off notifications to various apps, but this year I’ve deleted everything except for the functional apps on my phone.
Both of these are kind of shooting for the same goal. Being more present in my life. I think communicating better will make me a better listener and observer, and obviously the lack of tech incessantly pestering me in the back of my head will help me free up some mental space for the present.
