Theory: I keep an education ad training spreadsheet that includes five organizations to which I need to submit continuing education. At the beginning of the year I layout plans and expenses to complete that year's segment.

Practice: I accomplish maybe 60% of what I plan to, but procrastinate on the rest and have to get the remainder near the end of the renewal period. As they say, a plan is great but it's the action that counts.

Nope I'm completely on top of it.  Once it sort of slipped up on me and I almost didn't have time to get it finished, so now I'm months and months ahead of time. I also make sure agents at my office are as well.

I'm constantly doing continuing ed so I always end up with more hours than required.  The only thing I need to look out for is the required core law here in Florida so I try to take that at the very first opportunity after my renewal.

Try to do a little at a time. If I need 12 hrs and have 3 months, I'll do 4 a month so it's not overwhelming.
