Steps in Personal Development Planning Process
Personal development is no rocket science and one really needs to have patience and believe in oneself. There is no specific formula and you cant expect miracles to happen all of a sudden. Personal development requires meticulous planning and careful analysis. As an individual, you need to know in which all areas, you need to work hard or what all new skills would help you deliver more than hundred percent. Simply joining a course without understanding the need to join it and how it would help in your career is of no use. Never join anything unless and until you yourself are fully convinced.
You need to first know what your goals and objectives are. Ask yourself as to why do you need personal development? Why do you have to take the pain of attending training sessions, or taking time out to upgrade your knowledge? What is your vision in life? Personal development planning refers to the process of creating a detailed action plan as to what should be an individuals course of action and how should one approach to gain as much knowledge as he can and acquire additional skills. Without a proper plan, trust me, you would end up in a big zero. Do not look for shortcuts in life. It is always better to adopt a step by step approach. Never do anything in a rush.
