Like I was saying....

Professional Development Meme

Emily started a few different Meme’s or challenges. Then she challenged me specifically with one. So I’m falling in line with it. It’s a Professional Development Meme. One where you get better at something professional I guess. Let’s read the rules:


Summer can be a great time for professional development. It is an opportunity to learn more about a topic, read a particular work or the works of a particular author, beef up an existing unit of instruction, advance one’s technical skills, work on that advanced degree or certification, pick up a new hobby, and finish many of the other items on our ever-growing To Do Lists. Let’s make Summer 2008 a time when we actually get to accomplish a few of those things and enjoy the thrill of marking them off our lists.

The Rules

  1. Pick 3 professional development goals and commit to achieving them this summer.
  2. For the purposes of this activity the end of summer will be Labor Day (09/01/08).
  3. Post the above directions along with your 3 goals on your blog.
  4. Title your post Professional Development Meme and link back/trackback to
  5. Use the following tag/ keyword/ category on your post: pdmeme.
  6. Tag 5 others to participate in the meme.
  7. Achieve your goals and “develop professionally.”
  8. Commit to sharing your results on your blog during early or mid-September.

Then I’m supposed to give my “professional goals”. Here goes.

  1. Read one book a month related to church leadership or spiritual development.
  2. Learn the basics and move to the intermediate level of Photoshop.
  3. Pray and read my Bible 6 of 7 days a week.

We’ll see how it goes. And I tag:

  1. Jeremy
  2. Rick
  3. Jason
  4. Pete
  5. Kem
