Hello permie friends,

I will be attending my first PDC this year and am looking for advice from those of you who have participated in one. There will be an immense amount of information to obtain and I was wondering if anyone had suggestions as to things you did to get the most from your experience.

FYI, The course will be in the second half of September at the Possibility Alliance in La Plata, Missouri.

I definitely appreciate any ideas,

Try to read as much as you can between now and then. I had actually read the Designer's Manual, cover to cover, more than once before I took my PDC and got a lot more out of it than if I hadn't.
When you are at the course site, try to immerse yourself in the experience as much as you can. Try not to be immediately referencing everything you learn back to your home place.....there will be time enough for that later.....
No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better. This time, do it with this tiny ad:
