Think back on the past year in your life. Do you feel like you made significant progress in life? Can you say without the shadow of a doubt that you grew as a person during the last year? Or, did you catch yourself wasting important time on mindless activities that lead you nowhere? Do you feel like you have no control over your life, spending your days in a rush? If you finally want to kick gears in your development, then writing a development plan is the number one thing you can do.
“Life is like a sandwich! Birth as one slice and death as the other.
What you put in-between the slices is up to you. Is your sandwich tasty or sour?”― Allan Rufus
The power of having a precise plan lies in the fact that you are able to focus all your activities in the right direction, aligning your compass. This does not only give you more control over your life, but will also help you to stop drifting along doing whatever comes to your attention.
Think of your personal development plan as an attack plan for your life. This plan is necessary for the battleground called life where you develop strategies, implement the tactics and arrange the necessary logistics for a prosperous future.
