Attending conferences can be a bad thing when you don't keep the promises you make to yourself once you get back home.
One of the upsides of attending conferences is you get to learn new ideas, new methods, and challenge yourself to do better, perform better, and be better. However, if you fail to follow through on some or all of these commitments, you might as well have stayed home in the first place. Our most detrimental broken promises are the ones we break with ourselves.
So, set big goals, bring out the best in yourself and keep it out even after you get back home.
