I’ve never been one to do New Year Resolutions, but I do take time to “reflect” on the goals I set for each new year to measure my accomplishments!
Here they are for 2017!
Starting from the Top
Let’s start with The Quest Project®, after all it’s the #1 program in my practice.
- I facilitated 62 adolescent boys on a 10-week modern-day-rite-of-passage, known as The Quest Project in my office.
- I facilitated 60 adolescent boys at a local public school for ten-weeks. The “School” Quest Project included two groups of ten boys each from the sixth, seventh and eighth grades respectively. This was a first for me, and the results were off the charts successful!
- I held an inaugural The Quest Project for Men! For 10-weeks 6 men committed to working through the same processes the boys do; and the results were fantastic. This will be a new offering in 2018 and going forward.
- I began training a protégé to expand The Quest Project here and reach more boys. As well, developing “train-the-trainer” materials so that we can offer The Quest Project nationwide in 2018!
Putting It on Paper
In April, writing began on the second book, this one directed to dads with guidance on how to be a better father to their sons. It has been a labor of love and I expect it to be very helpful in bringing father and son back together, which is of great importance. Self-publishing is a lot of work; the book will be released when I’m sure it’s the best it can be!
I published 52 blogs, yes that’s one a week for the entire year! I hope some of those were helpful to you in your parenting journey. In addition, I authored a 116-page dissertation titled “The Difference of a Ten Week Counselor Facilitated Adolescent Boys Group on Behavior.” Its theory comes from the work I do with boys in The Quest Project®.
Lots of housekeeping on the business side with the help of business, legal and financial consultants to keep me focused.
Best for Last
I held true to my mission “to create healthy lifestyles by teaching, facilitating, writing, research and example.”
And…to top it all off amid of all of the above, the crescendo of the year, I completed my Doctor of Philosophy in Education and achieved my ultimate goal to be Dr. Clayton Lessor!
What will 2018 bring? You can be sure I’ve set my goals!
