Happy New Year!!!
I’m hopeful you all had an enjoyable holiday and are welcoming a brand new year with all its possibilities. For those that know me, you know that I am a goal-oriented person who embraces #challengeaccepted. So no surprise, my strategic planning has led me to change up my posting and social media habits to encompass what I want to accomplish this year. After seeing Simon Sinek’s TEDtalk Start with Why, I created my own Golden Circle around the ‘Why’ for Incessant Bookworm:
Why: Spread bookish knowledge to inspire the love of reading
How: Provide personal and relate-able information and narratives that is meaningful beyond synopses.
What: Produce bookish content on various social media platforms
Vision Statement: Be a legitimate resource for book-related inquiries through readers and authors
Through reflecting over these statements and values, I was able to start digging into how these are going to come about, the plan of action. If familiar with the process of Design Thinking, this is where I entertain the Ideate phase. One strategy to develop creative new ideas is to draw out a Mind Map. Let me tell you this was such a rewarding experience.
From here, I believe I have a good start to the next 3 months – before I do an audit to see what I should Stop/Start/Keep doing with bookish content. Fingers crossed that I’ll continue to learn and grow in my blogging experience.
Now back to the annual New Year’s family brunch!
Happy New Year!
