As a way to more actively feature our employees, we are going to begin an ongoing blog series—“Getting to know the Miron Team.” Our first post focuses on the year to come. We asked our employees, “What is your goal for 2015?” and the responses we received were both eye opening and inspiring. Take a minute to read what some of our ambitious team members are setting out to do this coming year.
WHAT IS YOUR GOAL FOR 2015?
To go to Las Vegas to see Elton John with my Daughter! To be the BEST grandma ever!!
My priority is to focus on family, friends and me and make more time for fun! Appreciate the good things in my life and not take anything or anyone for granted.
My goal for 2015 is to save money; so far this year I am doing pretty well, I have to say I am a little more picky about my purchases and ask do I really NEED this or do I really WANT this. Most of the time it is a want and I have been putting it down and walking away. It isn’t always easy but when I look in my bank account it makes me smile!
My goal this year is simply to become more efficient in my new role as Project Accountant. On a personal note, I’d like to take a road trip to one of the southern states I haven’t been to yet like Louisiana or Mississippi.
My number one goal for 2015 is to survive my first year of parenthood. I know there’ll be sleepless nights and moments of stress, but if I can just find a way to balance being a good mom with being a good partner, co-worker and friend, I’ll be a very happy camper come 2016.
To recreate me! Become healthy from the inside-out! Quit smoking, eat healthier, exercise.
Landscaping our yard at our new cabin up north this summer— lots of hard work ahead for Brian & myself … volunteers?
One of my goals for 2015 is to create a backyard oasis! We currently do not have any trees or privacy in the backyard. For 2015, my husband and I really want to plant some new trees and annuals in our backyard to create a border and add some privacy. We are thinking about adding a landscaping berm too. My husband and I plan on making this a spring project of ours. This way, we can enjoy our hard work and get some nice unwinding time in our backyard during the summer and fall. We also look forward to entertaining our family and friends for summertime get-togethers.
The goal I am pondering for this next year is pursuing my PhD…that and to have a killer garden and landscaping that I do myself.
One of my goals is to prioritize my workload and not get overwhelmed or stressed when my workload seems out of control.
My goals for 2015 are to run a half Marathon, refurbish my pontoon boat and buy a house. My professional goal for 2015 is to become proficient in CMiC.
I need to make my LEED Green Associate credentialing a priority this year.
I have several goals, short term and long, but here is one …TO BE A BETTER LISTENER. Leaders are good listeners, not just to hear you, but to truly listen, and understand the other person. Focus on the other person, walk a little slower and listen and grasp what is trying to be conveyed. Leaders Listen, Learn, and then Lead!
My goal for 2015 is to become a more organized person. Since having my baby, I feel as if I’ve lost the organization and drive (energy) I had to complete even the smallest tasks. I would also like to become more involved with my faith as I feel I’ve been lost on that path.
My goal for 2015 is to better myself personally by helping others in need. I would like to take one of the talents I acquired at a young age from my mother, which is sewing, and help the those in need by making hats, mittens and blankets and donating them to organizations that will have a need for them. I am at a point in my life where I have extra time on weekends so I think 2015 is the perfect time to start!
Building a raised garden bed for planting berries in spring.
One of my personal goals for 2015 is to lose weight. Although this goal may be a little cliché, I’m only 1 month into 2015 and have already lost 11 pounds. I’ve realized the success to losing weight is not a ‘diet,’ but rather a life-style change. Taking a few hours during the week to prep meals and snacks has been key to accomplishing this because even in a rush, there are healthy options ready for me. One of my professional goals for 2015 is to become more proactive rather than reactive. Coming up with solutions to problems early on is better for everyone involved because there is time to discuss and collaborate before deadlines have to be met.
To learn to fly fish.
My goal is to spend more time with my family. All too often we are running for this or that, and not making time for fun. This year, we as a family, are planning weekends to just have fun enjoying each other—going to the beach, camping, fishing, etc. Just relaxing!
One of my goals for 2015 is keep continually learning about the construction industry. This will be done through making an effort to talk with veteran co-workers and hearing about their past experiences as well as independently researching topics on my own. I am also looking at various options for a Master’s Degree in an applicable field.
Since I am new to the Fox Valley, one of my goals for this year is to become more familiar with the area. Not only would I like to explore what places the Fox Valley has to offer, but I would also like to try and get more involved with the community by volunteering.
My goal for this year is to resume my normal exercise routine.
