M.A.D. Your Personal Growth

This is the fourth in a series of M.A.D. Moments based on different areas of your life to inspire you or give you a boost at this time of the year.

What does personal growth mean to you?
  • What new skill would you like to learn?
  • Do you have an activity you’d like to try?
  • What have you always wanted to do or learn?
  • Do you have a habit you’d like to change?
  • What are you tolerating in your life, work, environment?

We all have areas where we’d like to improve. In our work or business we probably spend time learning new skills, keeping on top of the latest development in regulations, products or technology but how often do we spend time on our personal development.

Perhaps you’d like to learn a new skill, drop an old habit that is no longer useful to you or develop a new interest. Most of the time we’re too busy rushing around from day to day to think about allowing time for ourselves. It can take most of our energy just to get out of the bed in the morning.


Action:

What difference could you make to your Personal Growth this week?
  • List out at least 10 new activities or skills you’d like to learn – perhaps something you haven’t done since you were a child or something you’ve been meaning to do – paint, cook, learn to play golf, tennis, horse-ride, join a football/running club, learn a musical instrument … etc.
  • What habits or behaviours would you like to change? Think of at least three habits that you’d like to change. What behaviour do you display that annoys you or that you know annoys others? Think of at least three things that would enhance your life if you did them differently.

Take some time this week to find the course, club or workshop that will give you your new skills and sign-up. Don’t put it off any longer. Decide to learn at least one new thing this year.

Developing new habits or behaviours takes longer than a week but at least become aware of what and when you’re doing it. Think about how you would to do it differently instead. If you want to create a new habit, give yourself time.

This week, pick one thing that you'd like to improve.
