How to Make Your Own Personal Growth Plan
After creating and fine-tuning my own plan, I came up with a framework you can use to build your own.
Here it is:
This is pretty self-explanatory, but it’s important to focus on something specific. Rather than setting out to learn about business, narrow your efforts to something like online marketing.
2. Schedule time daily for learning
I’ve learned from experience that if I don’t schedule a block of time every day to focus on my personal growth—it won’t happen.
The best time to do this is in the wee hours of the morning. If you start waking up at 5:30 or 6 (before your day gets started) can get an insane amount done because your mind is fresh.
3. Read books and listen to podcasts
Tons of people HATE reading, but it really is one of the best ways to learn. I don’t know a single successful person who doesn’t read—it really is that important.
But if you’re like me and only can read in 30 minute chunks of time, you can supplement your reading by listening to audiobooks or podcasts. There are tons of great podcasts out there for business, which you can find easily on iTunes.
4. Focus on one thing at a time
One of the biggest pitfalls for entrepreneurs who set out on a personal growth journey is switching from topic to topic. The problem here is you won’t see any results in one particular area, which can be discouraging enough to make someone quit.
Be sure to focus on one particular topic for a couple months so you can see results—then you can move to the next thing.
Spending Time on Your Growth Is Guaranteed to Make You More Successful
The best, most successful entrepreneurs ALL focus on their personal growth. If you want to make more money and become more valuable to your business (or someone else’s) you really have to take time to learn.
