Setting Goals & Holding Myself Accountable in 2020

After a productive 2019, I am so excited to be looking forward to another great year ahead. One way I prepare for a new year is by setting goals. I plan out specific things I want to achieve and then create tasks that will lead toward achieving those goals.

While I am planning on continuing some of the strategies I put in place last year, I also have some new areas for myself to focus on in 2020.

I’m getting “back to work” on Monday after a [mostly] relaxing two weeks off. And I’m super psyched to start tackling this new year!

Happy New Year!

What You Can Expect

If you’re curious about what you can continue to expect from Katrina’s Resources, I can assure you that I will be regularly creating and posting new products in my Teachers Pay Teachers store.

A new product line is in the works right now: Common Core-aligned task cards for grades K-2 math. I’m releasing single packs and bundles in the upcoming months, so be on the lookout for them!

I will also continue to be interactive on my social media accounts, answering questions and posting inspirational content. Adobe Spark has been a lifesaver when it comes to creating content for my social media profiles. If you aren’t familiar with Adobe Spark, but find yourself needing to design posts, pins, and even animations, you may want to check it out.

Setting Goals for New Content

The biggest focus of 2020 is this page right here… My blog! I am planning on posting on a more regular basis about things my readers (that’s you!) care about. I will be focusing mostly on teaching and organization tools for teachers, students, and parents.

Another big change that’s coming is the implementation of video as a teaching tool. I’m super comfortable teaching in person and even behind a keyboard online, but when it comes to video, I’ve always been slightly camera shy. But that’s the old Katrina… I dabbled in recording and editing some videos in December and I’m sort of hooked on it now! Look for more videos on my YouTube Channel this year!

Learn from My Mistakes

One thing I’m doing this year is being more intentional with my business. I’m setting measurable goals, practicing time management, and taking notes about what works and what doesn’t. I’m planning on compiling all of my data at the end of the year to help others who are striving to run a business like I am. Not only will it help me when I’m goal setting again for 2021, but it will help teachers and business owners like you who are trying to grow your businesses, too.

If you want to sign up for updates about my business and tips and tricks I’ll be sharing with you, please do so in the subscription box at the bottom of this page. And, as always, be sure to contact me directly if you have any questions or comments!
