From the Trenches: New Year’s Resolutions

Every New Year comes with a clean slate—a chance to start fresh and improve. For those of us at Digital Works, a program of Connected Nation, that means connecting with all our students, graduates, and future participants in a new way.

This year, we’re launching a new blog series we’re calling “From the Trenches.” In this series, we’ll look at the unique challenges and opportunities we face before, during, and after going through the Digital Works program from those who are actively involved.

We’ll also look at common problems employees face while working remotely or in an office setting and provide solutions to those problems. As 2018 gets underway, it’s a great time to set goals for improvements in the office. It’s where we spend most of our time, after all.

If you want to be more effective at work, make these top five resolutions a priority for 2018:

  • Declutter/Get Organized
  • Help Others/Volunteer in Your Community
  • Kick a Bad Habit/Quit Smoking, Drinking, etc.
  • Eat Right/Exercise More
  • Set S.M.A.R.T Goals/Short Term & Long Term

Happy New Year from your friends at Digital Works and Connected Nation!
