Hey There 2020! Resolutions and Trends for the New Year_Blog Header 800x350

Get ready, 2020 is coming whether we’re ready for it or not. As we approach this time of new beginnings many of us will set goals or resolutions for the new year.

If you’re having trouble coming up with your own resolutions, have no fear, my friend.

We’ve got you covered!

We recently asked our team here at eLearning Brothers what their new year's resolutions are for 2020. The answers were all quite awesome. As we share our resolutions, maybe you’ll see something that sparks something for your own 2020...

Let’s take a look at a few of our favorites:

First up are a couple of great pieces of life advice, that maybe some of us need to apply ourselves:

“Be proactive instead of reactive!”

- Brennyn Beesley, Customer Success Manager


“My 2020 New Year's Resolution is to find more time for myself, away from the everyday grind.”

This next one will inspire you to think about your own personal learning and development goals for next year:

“I want to learn something new every day.”

Brie’s goal reminds us that working hard is only meaningful if you can take time to spend with family:

“Save up enough to travel to New York with my NZ in-laws before July!”

When you start to master something the way Rich has, it’s only fitting you’d want to share what you know with everyone:

“Create a multi-episode podcast.”
