Happy New Year!
This new year is different though…it’s not just the start of a new year but it’s the start of a great new decade. A lot can happen in 10 years!
Since the new year is a popular time to set resolutions; for many, working on our financial goals is at the top of the list. The best advice I have for you if you are a technician is to get yourself registered. This is the area where you can have the most impact on tackling that goal.
You might be thinking where will I find the time in my already busy life…2 quick tips:
1 – Wake up early EVERY day – for some of the most successful people, waking up early is the key to their success. (note the opening habits quote – read that again)
2 – Pair down your social media time – it’s no surprise that social media has become a huge part of our lives and sadly, it’s responsible for thousands of wasted hours.
Start taking small steps to work on your goal to becoming registered:
1 – Read – There are a lot of good technical books out there but my go to recommended book for my students is Fisch and Spehlmann’s EEG Primer: Basic Principals of Digital and Analog EEG.
2 – Move – Make it a habit to get out of your EEG or Sleep lab daily. Talk with your doctors….ask them about their patients. Your doctors are going to be your best teachers. If you don’t work in an area where your doctors are available; read the physician reports on the tests you run. Did you see what they saw?
3 – Connect – Access productive Neurodiagnostic sites that are going to support you in your goal. Reach out to other technicians that are already registered for advice and support.
4 – Join – Look for a way to build your study resources. On-line courses, trainers, tutors…they will all support you in your goal to becoming registered.
You might feel overwhelmed to do them all at once…commit to making 1 change a week. The goal is to add new habits to prepare yourself for taking the board exam this new year.
It’s a New Year of possibilities! Are you ready?
