My September must-do list revolves around the theme of professional development. It's a topic that comes up often with my friends, and we try our best to make time to improve ourselves professionally. My good friend recently decided to sign up for an accounting class at a community college for fun and that triggered the idea of setting up a professional development plan of my own. I'm aiming to do things that I believe will help me professionally, starting with my very first Toastmasters meeting tonight! I have other ideas in mind as well — books to read, TV shows to watch, and maybe even try my hand at finding a mentor.
It's going to take a lot of commitment, but I'm eager to share my experiences (good and bad) and check in with you every few days for support and feedback. Whether it's polishing up your job hunting skills, aiming to watch more Law & Order shows to prep for law school or even just reading one news article a day, I welcome you to join me on this eight-week professional development kick! Join my Professional Development Kick Challenge Group and share what you plan on polishing up, then update the group daily or weekly with your pitfalls and success stories. The community and I will be your number one fans!
