Welcome to Class, 2012-13

I want to welcome students at Crawford, Gibbon, Lexington, and Pleasanton High Schools to Entrepreneurship Class, 2012-2013. We have two sections of this class during the day (first and seventh hours). Assignments are located on the Edmodo.com site, a learning management system, to manage assignments and grades. I want to use this site to provide additional links and resources for class. In addition, students are asked to utilize their gmail email system for google tools and to share presentations with each other.

Making Resolutions

Making New Year’s Resolutions is popular by many people. A resolution is a goal that will improve your life in some way. Adults often make resolutions related to saving money, losing weight, or exercise. High School students and College Students have different priorities at times. Have you made any resolutions? What does it take to complete a resolution? Your assignment is to identify at least five resolutions to be completed in the next 90 days.

Michael Hyatt has some great tips in the link “Goal Setting” here.
In case you never received any instruction on this simple but important skill, I’d like to offer some pointers. First, why prepare 90-Day Objectives? Four reasons:

To identify what you want to accomplish.
To help you focus on what matters most.
To make sure that you and your supervisor are in agreement regarding your priorities.
To provide you with accountability.
