The 2009 Outlook -Tenure Track Goals...

I am too excited about this new year! It seems that 2009 is going to be one of the BEST years. I am finished with my doctorate, my family is settled in our community, and I am ready to write. Here are my goals:

a. To maintain work-related interpersonal relationships.
b. To write a scholarly article every two months.
c. To keep the blog updated at least two times every week.
d. To read at least two scholarly articles a week.
e. To keep an organized and updated calendar.

     This year's goals are smaller when compared to last year's goals. I shortened this year's goals to start on a focused path towards tenure. Last year, I gained wonderful mentors that I need to stay in contact with this year. In addition, I will try to attend as many academic conferences as I possibly can. Networking and organization are the keys to a successful 2009!

  1. These are great ideas you share. I am completing my second year of doctoral studies and would like to start writing also. However, I find it extremely difficult to find the time while completing course work and tackling a full time administrative job in a junior college. Your plans to achieve your writing goals seem very reasonable. After reading your plan, I have decided to write my own goals and develop a plan to achieve them.

    Networking, as you present it here, is very valuable. I also like the references you include.

    Thank you for sharing your goals and your strategies.
