Typically during this time of the year, I start cleaning up and throwing out papers and magazines. As I began this process, I stopped and reflected on something I learned at our October training session.
Deborah Boswell stated during her session Building Powerful Presentations, “create an “Ah-Ha” file.” She shared hers with us. Her “Ah-Ha” file was filled with resources to assist her in creating training courses. It included articles out of magazines, books and her personal notes.
With this in mind, I began to create my own “Ah-Ha” file. It includes articles (not the entire magazine), books and quotes. I now have a resource of information available for use when I create new training classes for 2011.
So as the year ends, begin to create your “Ah-Ha” file for 2011. You will be amazed at how much you overlooked in the past.
