I love to learn! Each year I give myself the gift of professional development. This week I am at NAPO 2023 Summit, the annual conference for our professional association and industry. I prioritize what is important to me which is learning with my peers for the benefit of my clients. Pictured with me here are NAPO Summit work team including Mimi Brown, keynote speaker for our Summit.
Know what is important to you
Education brings me joy. It is easy for me to know this is important for me. How do you know what is important to you? Think about what brings you joy.
Make it happen
- No matter what date, there will always be conflicts in scheduling. We have to make choices. I choose to make this happen by writing this on my planner well in advance. I share this love of learning with clients who know I will be away at this time. You can make your priority happen by writing it in your planner.
- I have learned that we need resources to make our priorities happen. I save funds each year for this opportunity. I allocate appropriate resources to travel, meals, and registration. Make your priority happen by using your resources wisely.
- Sharing what I love with those I love helps me prioritize. They are my cheerleaders and encourage me to follow my path.
I encourage each of you to write a list of your three top priorities and make these happen!
