Practice Like You Play

This article can be summarized with the sports phrase, "Practice like you play." Coaches are always telling athletes to approach practice as if it were a game. In the late 1990s, Roy Williams-the current UNC basketball coach who led the team to win the 2009 NCAA Men's Basketball Championship-gave a speech about how Michael Jordan, one of his former players, was drafted by the Chicago Bulls. Roy Williams said he was in awe at how hard Michael Jordan practiced, including during preseason workouts.

New Year's Resolutions
It is that time of year again. Not everyone starts the year by making a New Year's resolution, but I say there is no time like the present to set goals for what you want to accomplish in the year to come. You may set a goal to become a CMA or maybe to finish all your CPE well before the end of the year (nobody likes spending the holidays cramming in hours of continuing education).

What can a CMA certification do for you?
First, passing the CMA exam is a huge personal achievement. It takes a lot of discipline and dedication to study after work and sit through an examination. But, once you've conquered the first part of the exam, your momentum will carry you through the remaining part. You will feel on top of the world when you have completed both parts. This positive attitude will manifest itself in both your personal and professional endeavors.
