“We spend January 1 walking through our lives, room by room, drawing up a list of work to be done, cracks to be patched. Maybe this year, to balance the list, we ought to walk through the rooms of our lives . . . not looking for flaws, but for potential.”
—Ellen Goodman, American journalist and Pulitzer Prize–winning syndicated columnist
Welcome to 2014! It’s a fresh slate for all and the season for getting clients and ourselves on track with goals, dreams and ambitions.
Helping your clients to define and achieve their fitness milestones comes as second nature to you. The question is, are you applying the same standards to building your career and your business? How do you hold yourself accountable for growth and advancement?
One way to get started is to evaluate your education and inspiration needs for 2014. On a basic level, perhaps you need to renew your certification(s) by refreshing with some CECs. Did you know you can amass all of your continuing education needs at one of three events IDEA is planning for 2014? Mark your calendar, and start planning for an array of IDEA experiences that will plug you in, turn you on and push you forward on your goal continuum!
