We live busy lives that often have our calendars filled like an overflowing glass.
We schedule calls, meetings, doctors’ appointments and so on, but often fail to schedule time for self-development.
Personal development involves getting in touch with your own strengths and areas for improvement.
It improves mental health and self-esteem, productivity and motivation, interpersonal and technical skills and much more.
While the benefits of personal development are generally well known, we still manage to find many ways to push it to the very bottom of our list of priorities.
It can sometimes be uncomfortable to identify weaknesses and address them with what usually seems to be an exhausting plan to work on turning them into strengths… but this doesn’t have to be such a scary task!
Start small! Schedule time for yourself every day to chip away at your bigger goal.
This can look like a lot of things! Maybe it’s reading a book or listening to a podcast, or going to the gym and eating healthier.
It’s time to start treating self-development like an important meeting, but with yourself! Find time to develop yourself within all the chaos.
What does self-development look like to you? We want to know!
