The truth is there are guarantees in life (change, challenges, opportunities, and choices) and the more we develop our natural opportunities like our identity, mind, emotions, health, faith, strengths, relationships, communication skills, plans, productivity, grit, and investments the more it prepares us for, and attracts, human-made opportunity.

Personal development is to discover, design, and deliver truths and principles to build wisdom and skills that help make better choices and create meaning.
While all development processes involve the same discover, design, and deliver structure, they are all based on personal development. The three levels of personal development are the discipline of self, the art of fulfillment, and the science of achievement.
The discipline of self or the personal foundation includes developing our identity, mindset, emotional fitness, and physical health. Our identity includes our background, worldview, character, and personality. The best mindset for anything you desire to do, is a positive growth mindset.
The art of fulfillment can be found in three areas, what we have faith and hope in, how we engage our desires and strengths, and our relationships and love. This is where we create meaning in life, which helps us feel fulfilled. Purpose is a deeper level of meaning and is rooted in one or more of our faith, work, or relationships. Purpose is based on how we apply our uniqueness to the world.
The science of achievement is best built on a strong personal foundation and fulfillment. Achievements can turn into long-lasting legacy when they respect the principles of planning, productivity, grit, and investment. Compound interest isn't just for money, it also applies to knowledge, health, and relationships.
While time is our most important natural resource, each of these areas are important natural opportunities. The more we develop these natural opportunities the more fulfilled we feel, the more meaning we create in life, and the more it raises our collective humanity.
Any deliberate self-improvement is good; however, to maximize the best use of your time, mind, and emotions, designing a plan to reach your goals can be priceless. Having a plan helps create self-accountability and scheduling the tasks of a plan is proven to help follow through on them.
You can download and use the one-page pdf below or create your own one-page plan by making a note of your identity or worldview, top three decision guiding values, top strengths, and record a short affirmation of who you are and how you want to show up in life to others.
Then record your top 1-4 goals with the number one lead measure or the most important action or habit that will help you achieve the goal (and consider scheduling them).
Then record your most important relationships and maybe have a specific day and time you reach out and connect with them.
Consider having a section of continued learning where you list what areas you want to learn about and the resources (books you will read or the websites or podcasts you will frequent for such learning).
Then consider finishing it off with what you are grateful for. Then consider reading it daily, every morning to help with affirmations and visualization.
The Miracle Morning by Hal Elrod provides six proven practices that help most people get their day started well including Silence (meditation), Affirmations, Visualization, Exercise, Reading, and Scribing (journalling) which spells the acronym SAVERS. Set your intentions the night before, put the alarm across the room and sleep in your workout clothes if it helps. Earn your morning shower (Hal Elrod).
