2011 = action

I read about an idea today where you choose one word as a focus for the year ahead instead of making up ‘resolutions’ (thanks to @pipcleaves on twitter for the find). I like the idea and my word came to me within about 3 seconds – ‘action’.

It sits perfectly with me and I feel is the ideal word for what I need to do in the year ahead. To reflect on my past I think I know a lot more and have far more ideas than I implement and often over analyse and hold back at the expense of trying something and reflecting.

So 2011 will be about doing more with what I know. Putting ideas into action with my classes. I certainly feel I need to bridge the gap between what know and what I do and a focus on ‘action’ in 2011 will hopefully help bring these closer together.

Next few posts will outline some of these ideas.
