In this episode, (and video above), I share with you how a single sticky note helped me stay motivated during my 6 to 9 months of studying for the PE Exam.
Here Are Some Key Points Discussed in This Episode:
- Passing the exam will grant you the title of a licensed professional engineer (PE) and bring numerous benefits to your career.
- A sticky note reminder, such as writing your name, with “PE” after it, and placing it on your monitor, can keep you motivated and focused during the studying process.
- Sharing your exam plans with others can provide outside motivation and accountability to help you stay on track.
- Another thing that kept me motivated to study for the PE exam was because I knew that new licensed professionals would be taken out to lunch by the CEO of our company. Passing the exam and having lunch with the CEO was a significant turning point in my career, and it’s a day that I will always remember.
- If you pass the PE exam and become a leader in your company, consider ways to motivate, encourage, and support other engineers in your organization to obtain their license.
