LinkedIn Learning: New Year Challenge
12 January 2021
LinkedIn Learning have put together a three-week New Year challenge that highlights a number of videos and activities that you may want to try out this month to set yourself up for success. Check out below for an overview of the challenge and your daily activities.
New Year Challenge: 2021 Edition
Welcome to 2021! The New Year is a time full of optimism and possibility when we reflect, we dream big, and we set goals for the future.
However, research suggests that while about half of us set goals at the start of each new year, only about 8% of us achieve them. Yikes!
This year, we invite you to participate in the LinkedIn Learning New Year Challenge, kicking off January 12th, designed to help you set realistic goals, hold yourself accountable, and create habits that stick.
Challenge yourself to complete each day’s short learning. Each can be completed in ~5 minutes.
Happy New Year, and happy learning!
