I hope you had a great holiday season. :-)</strong></p> <p>You may have noticed that I haven't published any articles for a few weeks. Instead I've been relaxing and reconnecting with friends and family. I've also been reflecting on my successes and failures from the previous year and <em>thinking about my goals for the new year.</em></p> <p>Like many people, I have tendency to set many, overly-ambitious goals for myself that are impossible to achieve. <em>Have you ever done this?</em> ;-)</p> <p>That's why this year I've decided to systematically choose only ONE PERFECT language learning goal. To be "perfect" it should:</p> <ol> <li><strong>Make a big difference</strong> in my language learning journey, and</li> <li><strong>Be <em>actually</em> achievable</strong>.</li> </ol> <p>In this article I present <em>three simple questions</em> that I used to choose the perfect language learning goal for me in 2013.</p> <p>Don't make any more empty promises to yourself!</p> <p><strong>Read more and use the same questions to discover the perfect goal for YOU!</strong></p> <p><a href="http://www.linguatrek.com/blog/2013/01/discover-the-perfect-language-learning-goal-for-2013-3-simple-questions" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.linguatrek.com/blog/2013/01/discover-the-perfect-language-learning-goal-for-2013-3-simple-questions#comments language learning New Year's resolution Tue, 01 Jan 2013 15:00:00 +0000 David Snopek 224 at http://www.linguatrek.com My language goals for 2012 http://www.linguatrek.com/blog/2011/12/my-language-goals-for-2012 <div class="diag align-right" style="float: right; width: 106px; margin: 10px 0 10px 10px"><a href="http://www.linguatrek.com/sites/www.linguatrek.com/files/imagecache/Large/image/2011/12/fireworks.jpg" rel="lightbox"><img src="http://www.linguatrek.com/sites/www.linguatrek.com/files/imagecache/Small/image/2011/12/fireworks.jpg" alt="Fireworks!" title="Photo by Trey Ratcliff" /></a><div class="caption"><a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/95572727@N00/2374904960">Photo</a> by <a href="http://www.flickr.com/people/stuckincustoms/">Trey Ratcliff</a></div></div> <p>I know a lot of people think New Year's Resolutions are stupid. Personally I've always liked them and I <em>try</em> to make some every year. Unfortunately, I can't remember the resolutions I made for 2011. :-/</p> <p>But that old, tired year will be behind us soon. It's time to start thinking about the wonderful New Year!</p> <p>While I have a number of New Year's Resolutions - including to start flossing my teeth more often :-) - the main topic of this blog is language, so I'm only going to talk about my language learning goals.</p> <p><strong>Read more to see my language goals for next year!</strong></p><p> </p><p><a href="http://www.linguatrek.com/blog/2011/12/my-language-goals-for-2012" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.linguatrek.com/blog/2011/12/my-language-goals-for-2012#comments New Year's resolution personal Tue, 27 Dec 2011 16:00:00 +0000 David Snopek 107 at http://www.linguatrek.com
