Planning For 2011
In the following section, I will list my four priorities, resolution description, timeline for completion, and the action items I plan to use.

Complete the Dissertation
This goal is a big one. Having completed all my required coursework in 2009, I need to close this chapter of my academic pursuit. Therefore, by the end of 2011, I resolve to finish all work necessary to write, submit, and defend the proposal and the related dissertation toward a successful completion of the D.B.A.

  • Send weekly update to list
Increase Total Listens of Room 3026 Live to at least 27,000
In 2010, the team successfully brought in over 10,000 listens. I resolve that by the end of 2011, Room 3026 Live will have at least 27,000 listens to the show.

  • Receive 27,250 listens (November)
Action Items:
  • Post pre/post show notes for every episode
  • Update episode description and title for every show on BlogTalkRadio 
The aforementioned timelines and action plans are broad strokes. This means that I can incorporate other action items to outperform my guiding numbers, which I plan to do.
