The plenary speaker, Craig Zablocki, was awesome. Thanks to his presentation, I have challenged myself to only entertain the things I can control and let go of fear, ego, and worry (F.E.W.) for 21 days. Craig states, “Out of 100 things people worry about, half are in the past.” What an amazing statement! Many people spend so much time worrying about the past. Hopefully, after my 21-day challenge, this practice will become a habit. As the old saying goes, “There’s no time like the present time.”
I also enjoyed the breakout sessions regarding Retirement Planning and the TSP by Jim De La Torre. I was particularly impressed to learn more about the various phases of the retirement system. Jim was very knowledgeable and thorough and has set me on the right path to enhance my retirement investments.
I am very thankful to have had the opportunity to experience this year’s conference. I want to extend my appreciation to the NCBC for making this experience possible. Attending the Conference allowed me to attain ideas which can ultimately enhance my effectiveness and efficiency at work.
