Why Optimize Is My One Word for 2022 – Easy EdTech Podcast 144

In this episode, I dive into why optimize is my one word for 2022 and what I hope it will look like in action throughout the year.  You’ll also hear my personal goals and focus areas, how I plan to use the word optimize to guide me, and how I plan to stick with it throughout the year.

This week’s podcast is titled: Why Optimize Is My One Word for 2022 and I thought that it would be a perfect topic to kick off the year. Now if you’ve followed along with the podcast for a while you can probably guess that I’m recording this in December, since I like to plan ahead and prep content on the blog and podcast ahead of time. So maybe it shouldn’t come as too big of a surprise that my word for 2022 is optimize.
