The One Word Resolution (2014 Edition)

About a year ago I forewent a lengthy New Year’s Resolution and committed to one word: momentum. Momentum is essential when it comes to determining whether or not training and professional development will “stick.” If you’ve read this blog over the past year, I’ve documented the momentum I’ve been able to generate over the past year – from the post in March where I described the building of training DNA in SMEs to the post in September where a guest blogger (and SME) described his evolution toward more instructionally-sound presentations.

Looking ahead to 2014, I resolve to keep my energy up as I work to continue building momentum. I’d also like to add another word to guide me over the coming year: possibility.

When training and development is done well, it opens a world of possibilities to anyone in attendance. And that’s what learning experiences should be about: what’s possible.

As I look ahead to what’s possible in 2014, I’ll be stepping away from new blog posts until January 6th. I’d like to thank you all for reading, I’d like to wish you all a very happy holiday season and I’m looking forward to sharing a world of possibilities through a host of amazing blog posts in the new year!

In the meantime, I’d like to hear from you – is there one word you can commit to over the coming year?

Know someone who might be able to commit to one powerful word over the next year? Pass this post along.
