One degree makes all the difference

One degree is the difference between hot water (211 degrees) and steam from boiling water (212 degrees) that can power a machine. What small effort can you exert that will yield expotential results?

Sam Parker and Mac Anderson wrote a small book, "212 degrees, the extra degree", to motivate and inspire us to go the extra mile, spend the extra hour, and make the extra call. The difference between an Olympic gold medal and no medal can be less than a second. The average winner in four major golf tournaments over the last 25 years prevailed in less than three strokes. B.C. Forbes said, "Triumph is often nearest when defeat seems inescapable". This new year I encourage you to commit to the extra degree for a Happy, Healthy, and Prosperous 2008!

US Forest Service sees the forest through the trees
  A story of the extra degree
The PMP (Project Management Professional) certification is so important that the Federal Government is starting to require it on certain contracts. Todd Butler, with the US Forest Service, realizes the certification's value and participated in Achievement Consulting &Training's "Comprehensive Project Management with PMP prep" workshop the last week in November.

Here's what Todd said about the workshop: "I took a 5 day PMP class from Achievement Consulting & Training a few weeks ago and it was outstanding. By and large instructors simply lecture the material and force as much info down your throat as possible in the least amount of time. The material presented in my class was very dry and tedious by nature, but the instructor really excelled at presenting it in a lively and succinct manner that made it more productive and motivating than your typical "fire hose" class. She had multiple interactive and hands on exercises each day, encouraged active participation, and was able to facilitate the classes' progress keeping things on track. She also provided a first-rate workbook to outline and supplement the information in the course's text book."

Thank you Todd! Congratulations on making the extra degree!
