““Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?”
“That depends a good deal on where you want to get to,” said the Cat.
“I don’t much care where –” said Alice.
“Then it does’t matter which way you go.””
From Alice in Wonderland

You should have a clear goal where you want to go so that you can make a plan that will take you there. In this post we will learn about personal development plans and how it can help you achieve your goals.
You must have a clear and very specific personal development plans that you want to achieve. Now we will get into details.
What are Personal Development Plans ?
Personal development plan are list of goals and action that you want to achieve it can be as simple an
- Being a more positive person

The list can go on the important thing is that you should know clearly what you want out of your life. Get everything out don’t stop yourself keep writing until you feel like there nothing more in there.

Writing something down give you a sense of accountability that you have do this. Now all you have to do is break that goals in time frame like

- 5 year goals
- 1 year goals

What are the goals that are still important to you. Remove those that you don’t think that you want to achieve. For example my long term goal for a long time was to get a PhD. But as time pass by and I change it and cut that out of my list. Now I have new things that are more worthy of my time. Like making many sources of passive income so that I can travel world. I like to really see the world know how people live in different parts of the world how they think what are there goals and dreams.
You can also change your goal if you don’t want it now. There is no shame in it. It’s your life you should take total control of it.
