Instead of ‘resolution’, think of a new term: ‘evolution’. This makes it an on-going process.

NAPW Honolulu Chapter met at the Pacific Center for Advanced Technology Training (PCATT) located on the Honolulu Community College main campus on January 20th, 2012 at 12:00pm to learn about how to commit to and keep resolutions with speaker Laura Lund of Your Authentic Story.

The Main Campus of Honolulu Community College, a short distance from the heart of downtown Honolulu, occupies over twenty acres on Dillingham Boulevard in the Kalihi-Palama area. The College also has facilities near Honolulu International Airport for the Aeronautics Maintenance and Commercial Aviation programs, automotive and heavy equipment shops on Kokea Street, and the Marine Education and Training Center at Sand Island. Honolulu Community College is a member of the American Association of Community Colleges and the Western Association of Schools and Colleges. Honolulu Community College has been continuously and fully accredited since 1970 by the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges, Western Association of Schools and Colleges. NAPW Honolulu Chapter is very appreciative to PCATT for their generosity in allowing us the use of their conference room at no charge.

Leslie Lewis, President, kicked off the meeting by welcoming everyone. Attendees exchanged business cards, flyers, and samples.

Laura Lund, Your Authentic Story, presented about New Year’s Resolutions. The discussion included why people make resolutions and don’t keep them.

Individuals make resolutions out of habit, the feeling that it’s time to change, for self- improvement, and for new opportunities. People don’t keep them because they feel too hard, they weren’t committed, change is hard, and because life circumstances change.

“To keep you resolutions,” said Laura, “have a plan, have support, track your progress, feel successful, and see the return on your investment. Instead of ‘resolution’, think of a new term: ‘evolution’. This makes it an on-going process.”

Included in the packet was a personal master plan for each attendee.

After the presentation Leslie talked about NAPW and the goals to connect, learn, grow, and inspire.
