As I type August 11th this morning, I can't believe we only have a few weeks left until school starts back again!

What a year we have had and with school just around the corner, it brings on so many mixed emotions for many young parents.

This summer has truly flown by and I personally take pride in trying my best by 'living in the moment' and appreciating each day. I am not sure how much faster it would go by if I didn't live with intention.

We are heading into the fall, and the last quarter of 2020. Now is a good time to reflect on this year so far and make a plan for the fall.

The goals we created for ourselves at the beginning of the year may not necessarily be the same goals that we would create for ourselves after being in a pandemic.

Take the time now, in a quiet place to reflect on your year, your goals and decide what is working and not working. What you need to celebrate (if you have reached a goal)? What you need to recommit to (if you're quite not there yet)? What goal you need to revise? Heck, what goals should you consider need removing, allowing yourself permission and grace to do so? Then, look for something you can replace that goal with.

Setting a re-set button frequently, is a way of life. We can get caught up in the moment and go with the flow and before you know it, time has passed and we haven't achieved our goals for the year.

Pearl, what are your goals for this year? Personally and Professionally. Are you reaching them? Are you where you want to be?

Creating goals and achieving goals will give you such satisfaction.

Growth = Happiness.

Feeling stuck at work? Step back, reflect and create a goal for yourself. Something that will get you excited and have you looking forward to researching and implementing.

Goal setting sounds a bit like ADPIE to me.

A - Assessment - Do a Self-Assessment - check in on yourself professionally and personally. Where do you want to be?

D - Diagnosis Statement - Create your Goal Statement

P - Plan - Create your action plan to achieve your goal

I - Implement - Implement your plan

E - Evaluation - Celebrate success, Reflect, Revise, or Remove and Replace

Speaking of ADPIE, Beth Parkes and Kerry Lepicek set a goal to create a Process of Care course for rdhu. They have achieved this goal and ready to share this at our facility and online.

Thank you for reading! Please take a look below to see what is coming up and any exciting news to share.

Have a great week ahead and thank you for being a part of rdhu!

Kindest regards,
