6 Lessons Learned (Summer 2019 Edition)
Now as I get ready to start my third week of school, I thought I would take a minute to reflect on lessons learned this summer as I join up with other bloggers who are doing there same thing. (Check their posts out at Emily Freeman)
1. A Goal Plus Accountability Helps Complete the Task
Last year about this time, I started an online program through a seminary that had classes that ranged from how to study the bible to church history to global missions. There were 10 courses in all. I knew that it would be easy to start and hard to finish. But I also saw that it was doable to do in a year if I did one class a month. The key was how to make myself accountable to do it. Each year for my job, I am required to set goals that either do with my job or my personal life. I decided to make finishing these courses my goal. It was just the push I needed.
This year my goal is to write a bible study. I have enjoyed doing the research but am finding myself reluctant to start the actual writing. Hopefully having it as a goal will keep me on schedule to complete it. Now I need to come up with a good plan of how to get it done.
