How long can you plan?

I went to the National Strength & Conditioning Association’s (NSCA) website this morning to confirm the prerequisites for the┬áCertified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) certification. I plan to take this in June 2019.

The preparation has to be rigorous. And from experience, I can tell that lack of focus and intensity during the prep phase is what kills ambitions and kicks the candidates out.

That said, this statement below astounded me.

Thes folks are prepared for 2030! That’s impressive, given that organizations usually don’t put something out like this in public. Although, in all honesty, I’m not even sure if companies are willing to go the extra mile to think about their 5, 7 or 10-year vision/mission, let alone start working towards it.

I had a hard time coming up with a “49 & back” exercise. Took me almost two months to complete it. And that’s just my personal vision when I turn 49! Imagine what an organization would have to go through when they plan for something like this!

Truly commendable.
