Finish – Give Yourself the Gift of Done
April 24, 2018

Bonnie Cain-Wood HeadshotDo you feel like you or your coworkers start a million things but rarely finish them? You aren’t alone.

“Many people think the problem is that they aren’t trying hard enough, so they get up earlier, guzzle energy drinks or hire a life coach. For many, though, nothing works,” said Marcy Luter, Staff and Management Development Training Coordinator at Meridian Technology Center.

On May 8 as part of the ongoing HR Matters series co-sponsored by the Stillwater Chamber of Commerce and Meridian Technology Center, join Bonnie Cain-Wood, Communication Services Manager for OSU Libraries, as she facilitates Finish – Give Yourself the Gift of Done, based on the book by the same title.

“During this session, you’ll learn something surprising. The most effective strategies to help people complete their goals are not those that pushed people to work harder. The ones that got people to the finish line did just the opposite — they took the pressure off,” said Luter. “If you’re tired of being a chronic starter and want to become a consistent finisher, you have two options: you can continue to beat yourself up and try harder, since this time that will work, or you can come to this session and give yourself the gift of done.”

HR Matters sessions are held from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. on Meridian’s campus. Registration is $15 per session and includes lunch. For more information or to register for the upcoming HR Matters series visit or contact Luter at, (405) 377-3333 ext. 297 or toll-free at (888) 607-2509.
