What exactly is personal development?

Personal development focuses on achieving personal growth through enhanced self-awareness and the acquisition of additional knowledge and skills that will help you achieve your goals. Those goals and aspirations will vary significantly from person to person and they could include, for example:

  • Being more proactive
  • Read more
  • Travel more
  • Learn about other countries, cultures, politics, nature, etc.
  • Find more time to spend with family
  • Take up skydiving
  • Increased motivation at work
  • Learn a new skill
  • Take a course in this or that
  • Be more confident
  • Take up yoga

This list endless and it is really all about doing the things that make you happy.

Even though a lot of personal development courses focus on the individual's non-professional life, what is done in this area has a direct reflection on their work-life. Leading a happier lifestyle will always have a positive impact on your professional life. This in turn feeds back to create an even happier life. It's the kind of positive cycle that has the ability to lift one to greater levels of happiness and contentment.

The tools to achieve personal development

There are many tips and tools to assist you with achieving your personal development goals. You need to formulate clear goals and then you can work on how to turn them into reality. Some tools that help you achieve this are:

  • A Personal Development Plan
  • A Professional Development Plan
  • Personal development courses

The Personal Development Plan lets you map out your goals, obstacles and a plan of action. The Professional Development Plan allows you to combine your professional aspirations with your personal development goals and to make sure they do not work against each other. For example, your personal goal may be to travel more, but at the same time, you may be acquiring professional skills that will make you a likely candidate for a management position. If the latter prevents travel, then you need to revisit your plan. If travel is more important, you may want to guide your career in a direction that will enable you to become a freelance consultant some months or years down the line.
