Throughout my career I’ve logged hundreds or thousands of hours of professional development and an understatement would be that not all of it has been meaningful. Today we had a PD via zoom with a motivational speaker. This man walked us through a number of topics, but one stands out. During his presentation he challenged us to write down 4 things that are important to you:
Now that this list of 4 things is written down, look at that list….. we were then asked if we gave enough time to those 4 items.
Personally, I had trouble with finding 4 things, but apparently the national average is 2 Yes answers and 2 No answers to devoting enough time to the 4 most important things in their lives. This reflective strategy is applicable to any profession or stage in life.
