One of my goals for October is “What goals have you not accomplished yet?” There’s also a corresponding goal beneath it that says “Start goal planning for 2019.” Have you checked-in with your goals lately? Do you know where you stand? The year’s not over yet!! There’s still time to dust off those milestones and start something amazing.

(P.S. It’s that time of year to send in speaker abstracts for all the spring annual meetings! Check out SRA and NCURA to fill out your speaker proposal forms! You can do it! I have faith! Let me know if you want to collaborate on something!)
