"Productivity is never an accident. It is always the result of a commitment to excellence, intelligent planning, and focused effort."

What are you planning for at the moment?
As I write this, it is early January 2018, and like many I am trying to get some planning done and set myself up for a good year. As with many who write blogs or record podcasts, I am trying to build in some buffer-space, some articles that can be scheduled to appear at set times; while I have time during the holiday period when Miss One is napping during the middle of the day.
This includes recording a number of FTPL videos that have been uploaded and are ready to be scheduled into articles. It has been an incredibly productive period, having written several articles, recorded nearly a dozen FTPL videos, and completed the Flipped Learning Level II Certification course and there is still time before the students return to school to get some more done.
I have also been thinking about how I want to plan my year out vis-a-vis travel to regional areas in order to be more strategic and proactive than I feel I was last year, and thus far, have had some good conversations about my thoughts on that with Mrs C21, as well the person in the ClickView office with whom I work most closely and frequently. It will hopefully make things easier, more structured, and less reactive - always a good thing!
I hope your summer break has been restful and if you have been aiming to be productive in some way, domestically or professionally, that you have also been able to achieve that.
