Closing

  • M: Motivation-
  • You have to develop a motive or a purpose as to why you want to become a CDFM.
  • Is it because you want a promotion?
  • Is it because you want the designation behind your name?
  • Is it for respect?
  • Is it for shear educational reasons or purposes?
  • Regardless of the reason or motive, you must discover that purpose. Once you discover that motive, you can then begin to act on that motive. Motive plus action equals Motivation! Motivation is a motive acted upon. You must develop a motive and then act on that motive and display and stay motivated.
  • All successful individuals share this attribute
slide32

Closing

  • O: Opportunity-
  • You must take advantage of every single opportunity that presents itself for you to learn and to study.
  • For example research and find out where the Enhance Defense Financial Management Training Course (EDFMTC) is being offered and sign up and take it – it is centrally funded – that is, it is free!!!
  • Take advantage of mentors, advice, articles, and the like, which will help you study and obtain your CDFM.
  • It is absolutely essential that you seek out every single opportunity that is possible.

  • N: Network-
  • Seek out those that already have the CDFM and network with them.
  • Trade business cards with them.
  • Seek advice and recommendations from them.
  • Network each and every opportunity that you get with someone that you know that has successfully passed the CDFM exam.
  • You will find this to be tremendously helpful.

Slide 33

Closing

  • E: Education-
  • Set a goal to become more educated every day.
  • Take 30 minutes or an hour each day to study a segment of one of the modules of the CDFM.
  • It will make you smarter whether you are about to take the exam or not.
  • The CDFM, in of itself, is quality education – alone.
  • It will help you with your everyday work environment regardless of the branch

of service that you work for - as the CDFM is DOD specific.
