1. The first step you need to take is creating an honest assessment of your strengths and skills. Doing so will help give you a realistic guide for how to achieve your goals. Include everything you can think of, including any special training or personal interests you have pursued.
2. Now, explore what skills are necessary to succeed in your chosen endeavor. Take the time to research what special knowledge or skills have helped others to achieve in the same field. If possible, interview or read interviews with others who have found similar success. Make certain that you consider how technology may impact this list.
3. Compare the two lists and make note of any areas that you need to develop. Be honest with yourself. If you are weak in a particular area, address it rather than sweeping it under the carpet. Be thorough, this is only a list. You do not have to tackle everything on it at once.
4. Once you have created the list of skills you need to achieve your goals, you need to create a plan of action. Prioritize and organize what you need to learn. Break up larger tasks into smaller, more manageable segments. Use these short and medium term goals to create the path toward your long-term development plan. Account for the time and money your activities will require.
5. After all of that hard work, you are ready to begin. Immediately start working toward your short-term goals. Each evening, make a note of what you did to work on your goals that day. Periodically, you should review your goals and refine them. There may be obstacles or opportunities that alter your timeline; adjust your goals accordingly. Stay on top of your progress and continually push toward your greater goal.
6. As you are working toward your goal, share it with others. Eventually you will grow a support group to help you achieve your goals. You may also discover mentors along the way who will be able to give you special guidance. Accept the feedback and wisdom of others while remaining true to yourself.
Whatever your personal development goal, taking these steps can help you to achieve your desires. If you dedicate yourself to the process and are honest, you can develop a realistic plan to help you. Do not allow yourself to be weighed down by indecision and inaction. Make the choice today to do something different with your life. You can create your own destiny and live a more fulfilling life if you take charge of your goals instead of passively watching life pass by you.
