How To Stick With Those New Year’s Professional Development Resolutions

by Trevor Strome on January 2, 2013

Professional Development ChoicesStarting the new year off right

It wouldn’t be the beginning of a new year if I haven’t made some resolutions pertaining to my professional development as a healthcare analytics professional. Of course, like all resolutions, even the professional development ones can be hard to keep!

In an interesting post on entitled “How To Stick with a Professional Development New Year’s Resolution“, leadership and professional development expert Art Petty (see his site ““) outlines seven ideas that can help you keep those resolutions throughout the year.

Read Art’s posting for all the details, but a few of the points he makes are:

  • Listen more and talk less
  • Ask questions
  • Learn to graciously accept constructive feedback
  • Change your meeting habits (spoiler alert: meet less!)
  • Read more

I know that many times I get so busy keeping up with work that I forget to think  about what I am doing, and if I am doing things in the best, most efficient way possible.  The advice in Art’s article will go a long way in helping to achieve that.

If you have any professional development New Year’s resolutions, why not share them with us in the comments section?

All the best in 2013!
