    1. Move forward on my training library as much as is currently within my court to do so, 2. have a meeting with my manager about some development she has in mind for my professional growth (it's her idea but she's hard to pin down!) and 3. finish at least one of the books I'm currently reading about management.

        I just finished "What Got You Here Won't Get You There" by Marshall Goldman, I'm currently reading "Positive Leadership: Strategies for Extraordinary Performance" by Kim Cameron and a Maddie's published book about shelter metrics, and I'm waiting on two holds about staff training from the public library. ...I tend to overextend myself. But there are just so many things to read!!

    1. Get ready for Clear the Shelters.

    2. Eat lunch (got this idea from KatieKN).

    3. Communicate with at least 3 staff and volunteers each day to let them know how much I appreciate them and the work they do!

    I'm a member of a newly formed animal advocate group. We are working with a local shelter building their foster programs, transport programs, playgroups and Doggie day out programs. As with everyone we struggle with finding fosters Any outreach to recruit ideas is welcomed!

    1) Get as many of our long stay dogs into foster as possible, 2) Begin creating an online training for fosters, and 3) Actually eat lunch every single day
