Making a Commitment

A few weekends ago some smart people got together on Twitter to participate in a New Teachers to Twitter (#NT2t) chat.  From that time together came new connections and so much more.

The conversation started with the importance/necessity of reflection and ended up with a small group of participants making a commitment to share our thoughts/reflections/tips/tricks/absolutely whatever via our blogs.  In simple terms, it meant it's time to blog.

I mention my personal value of reflection often.  In my experience, it's one of the first things that gets pushed aside at the end of a training/coaching session/meeting/chat/etc.  I believe in the value of reflection on a personal level and want to do it more.  That's why I'm making the commitment to share and reflect more often.  Let me rephrase that, I reflect all of the time already.  I'm making a commitment to document the conversations/journey inside my head more often.  There's an obvious difference between those two things.  Through this I'm hoping for extra clarity, connections, and wisdom.  Who doesn't need a little more of those in their life?

Using the hashtag #NT2tBloggers I'm getting that extra motivation to document and share on a more ongoing basis.  I'm looking forward to the personal and collective journey that will be our hashtag.

I'm ready.

Let's do this, #NT2tBloggers.
