New Year, New GoalsResolutions? Make them AND keep them!There is nothing like a getting a fresh start with your goals…and the the new year is a great time to do just that. As an SLP, I know it is easy to be overwhelmed by all of the influencers, researchers, and super clinicians when I am setting aspirations (sorry, I love a good SLP pun!) for myself, so I try to focus on just a few big goals at a time, then take small steps on a regular basis toward that goal. For example, I wanted to keep up more with current research, so I set a goal last year to read an article on dysphagia for 20 minutes every Friday. I found myself looking forward to that quiet time so much and ended up reading more than I thought I would!Another trick to achieving those resolutions is to look for help. In the gym, that might mean a personal trainer…but if your goals are focused on improving your knowledge base in swallowing, I want to be that person for you! Please share with me what would be most helpful to you this year by clicking below, OR if there is something very specific you need, let me know!Looking forward to hearing from you, and to helping you conquer those resolutions!!

Now…off to dust my treadmill!
