Principal Wardle's Weekly Blog

What’s your Blueprint for 2015?
This past summer I was surrounded by building blueprints as BG was under heavy construction.  It was fun and amazing to see the blueprints become reality!  

As we turn the page on 2014 and begin 2015, it is a great time to plan the “blueprint” of your year.  Without a goal or aiming point, we will never accomplish what we want; at the same time, I am always amazed at how close our results can imitate the blueprint we chose for our lives.  I don’t know about you, but the last thing I want to do this year is live an aimless life.

As you begin 2015 do you have a blueprint of the life you want to have a year from now? Can you see a preferred future? Are there relationships you need to rebuild? Is there a cause calling for your time?  Let’s build a great 2015 together.
