January 2018-Time for a New Start

The beginning of a new year has many of us thinking about goals, planning for new projects and looking back at what didn't work in the past.

Most of us look at the new year as a fresh start.

What does my view of the year look like?

First, staying on track of the many things I need to get accomplished each day is a must.
I played with using a bullet journal last year and it was helpful. When I used it! 
This year, I am making it a priority to incorporate it more in my daily planning along with using Evernote and Trello to keep me on task.  

Second, my personal research has been put on the back burner as client work, teaching and writing have taken up more of my time. Carving out time for my ancestors is on the action plan for this year. 
I really need to find out where my great great grandfather Campbell Price disappeared to and when my Daughrity ancestors came to South Carolina!

The third point on my new start plan for the year is to continue learning and growing as a genealogist.  Education is important in any field. Keeping skills fresh and gaining knowledge of others as opportunities arise rounds up my genealogy goals for the year.
Attending conferences, listening to webinars and participating in online classes and hangouts along with reading books and magazines will provide the necessary knowledge needed to be the best I can be. My big to do this year is to learn more about DNA and understanding test results. 

Lastly, I would like to help more of you climb your family tree this year. More presentations, classes, coaching, client work and blogging have been added to my schedule with additions to come. 
Let me know what I can do to help you! 

Taking the time to chart a course for the year can help us all get motivated and begin anew. 
The most important thing is to put that plan into action and go and do!

So what about you? Are you planning on a new start for your genealogy pursuits this year?
What plans have you made? How are you going to accomplish them? What will keep you motivated?

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Helping you climb your family tree,
