  1. Decide a specific goal. Whether you want to lose weight, get better at painting or go to school to get the degree you always wanted, you need to set a goal.
  2. Once a goal is set, plan what you need to do to get there. Making a plan gives you a head start and a path to your goal, whether you apply for financial aid to the school of your choice or sign up for exercise classes,
  3. Start your development process. If you are building new habits, be patient with yourself, but also be determined to succeed.
  4. Create a personal development record to keep track of your successes and work through parts of your plan that aren’t working as you’d like them to.

Personal development skills need to continue during people’s lives to ensure that the individual’s life experience is satisfying.
