Feb 28 Status: Project Completed.
Course completed and I'm having a glass of wine.
I am so proud of myself. I have had access to this course for a year, but I would only log in when I felt like it and study something that peeked my interest. In the past 30 days, I really got everything together and moving.
It did not take a complicated plan. I think I just needed to see the big picture on paper to understand the scope and have a compass.
The two biggest factors were motivation and making time.
Am I lazy? What is the problem? Once I would get started, I really enjoyed what I was studying. I had wine and cheese snacks. This is all career related and I love my work, it is meaningful. I am not sure why I had so much trouble just deciding to sit down and study.
Also, it seemed that as soon as I made the decision to finish this course in 30 days, all sorts of crazy issues suddenly appeared out of the wood work. Like seriously, out of no where. They were constantly competing for my time. Now that I'm done, suddenly there is literally nothing to do.
I'm done, but can't take the test until June. I already started the additional training resources and I feel they will help keep my knowledge up to date. Also, I do this kind of work at my job every day.
Thanks Cindy, for sparking the motivation to get this done.
This is so exciting to see:
I even get a certificate:
Now I think I will take a creative course on Skill Share.

Also, I have been reviewing some training materials from IAAP and find them quite good to keep me studying until June.

Considering I have been procrastinating on on this program a year, it is nice to see all the completed sections. The past three weeks have been intense, but I still think I have something to show for it. The drive to see all sections marked as completed has kicked in. The last two sections are dense content, but I think I can finish by March 1st.

Ran into my first snag. Today I found out I can't take the test until June and there is another certification I need to get. Not very happy at the moment, but I will take a moment to note that I have progressed quite a bit in the past two weeks. This project is growing and will need to be re-evaluated to include more content and more time. I am losing access to my current study content on March 2nd. Need to research next steps.
For now, I will continue to study this course work, but at a less accelerated pace. Jumping to the two testing course will be the best use of my remaining time.

Not a pretty bujo or anything, but I will admit, this is the most thought I have put into this project and I think the end result is actually doable. Not easy, but doable, and... wine is included.
