And The Results Are In!

I’m starting to hear back from several of you who took the State Distribution exam last January. So far, every one reports passing — and with some impressive scores. Nice going, guys!

I’m guessing those nice scores came from lots of hard work — you chose the road to Success, instead of the other route. There is no substitute for your own effort when it comes to being successful on the certification exams. In all modesty, I am a terrific teacher! (Okay, so that’s not so modest.) But it’s not the teacher, or the practice exams, or the text book, or anything else that matters most in your success. Number one is always your personal effort.

Well, no rest for the weary! The next exam is less than two weeks away. And you know what it will take to be successful: the same hard work that those who passed the January exam employed to get their high scores. So make sure to spend at least 20 – 30 minutes each day preparing for the exam.

In other news, thanks to Follower Chris for the following article. See:

According to the Public Policy Institute of California, water in this state is being mismanaged. I think it’s time for Doctor Watson to wake up Sherlock Holmes! What was their first clue, I wonder?

The PPIC describes itself as a “non-profit, non-partisan think tank … dedicated to informing and improving public policy in California through independent, objective, non-partisan research.”

That sounds really good. I have heard of this outfit, but I must confess that I really have had no interaction with them, so I don’t have an informed opinion of them. The only thing I can go by right now is that they’re headquartered in San Francisco. I don’t think anyone in San Francisco is non-partisan! And worse still, they’re Giant fans!

Seriously, though, this is a thought-provoking piece worth a few minutes of your time. And if you have an informed opinion — not like mine! — on the PPIC, please leave a comment on our blog for today.
