Intro: I Can Help You - But How?
You want personal development / self
improvement and now you're looking for a self
improvement plan. That's
great! By coming here, you're well on your way.
I can help you on many
different levels, and in several different ways. I am offering you something
you'll find nowhere else. (Or, if you find something like this, you'll know
they've copied it from here).
I can offer you several different types,
and you get to pick the one that suits you best. It all depends on who you are
and where you're at in your life and your personal development.
speaking you get to choose between three types of personal development plan:
goal oriented, person oriented or method/principle oriented. Here's a brief
description of each type - links for deeper articles about each one is on the
The Goal Oriented Plan
general type of plan for your growth and development which is focused mostly on
what you want to achieve.
This is the traditional kind of personal
development plan, more or less. When you search the Internet, odds are this is
the type you will meet.
I will provide you with both a helicopter view of
this - and a detailed example of a self improvement plan of this type. (If you
can just wait a while).
The Person Oriented
There's the type of plan that's specific for you, which depends on who
you are in terms of personality, habits, tendencies, preferences, etc.
This type is focused on how to develop you as a person.
This kind of
plan doesn't require personal one on one coaching (though
that might help and speed up the process), but it does require you to do some
tests to find out more about yourself (if you haven't already).
some free tests you can do with this in mind, and more are on the way.
The Method or Principle Oriented Plan
there's the general type of plan which is basically more of a method or a
principle that you can apply to problems and challenges in your life (or even to
your entire life all at once).
Every time a difficult and unpleasant
'something' arises in your experience you can use this kind of personal
development plan to both fix the issue and move on in terms of personal growth
This kind of personal development plan is versatile tool
you can bring with you where ever you go, sort of like a pocket Swiss army
My all time preferred method / principle is
How Easy, Fast, Efficient,
Scary and Safe Is Each Type of Self Improvement Plan?
All of the above three kinds of personal development plans
are tried and tested. They work beautifully.
If you ask
me how (potentially) easy, fast, powerful, scary and safe each
method is, I would rank them like this (from 0 to 10 with 10
being the highest score):Characteristics of the goal
oriented (or: traditional) kind of P.D. plan
Easy to do
(simple): 5 (medium easy)
Fast working (how soon you'll
experience the effects): 3 (slow)
Powerful (efficient in
terms of personal development): 3 (not so efficient)
(brings out your fear): 3 (not so scary)
Safe: 10 (extremely
safe)Characteristics of the person oriented kind of
Easy to do (simple): 3 (not so easy to do)
Fast working (how soon you'll experience the effects): 5
Powerful (efficient in terms of personal
development): 7 (quite efficient)
Scary (brings out your
fear): 7 (can be quite scary)
Safe: 10 (extremely safe)
Characteristics of the method / principle oriented kind of
Easy to do (simple): 7 (quite simple and easy)
Fast working (how soon you'll experience the effects): 7 (quite
Powerful (efficient in terms of personal development):
9 (very efficient)
Scary (brings out your fear): 9 (can be
Safe: 10 (extremely safe)
As you can see,
all three types of plan are very safe. The primary trade off
is between speed + efficiency versus scary.
and more efficient the type of personal development plan is,
the more it tends to bring out your fear. Not surprising,
considering most of us are basically afraid of change.
However, please remember that the old adage 'you have nothing
to fear but fear itself' is actually quite true when it comes
to self improvement plans.
Which Type of Self Improvement Plan?
- Well, You Choose ...
Which type of
personal development plan that's best for you depends on who
you are, what your situation is and what you prefer.
any case these different kinds of personal development plans
can be combined, and I certainly recommend that you do so!
Obviously, if you're a very goal focused person, the goal
focused type might suit you well. If you are interested in
people and psychology, the person oriented type of plan might
do you good. And (almost) no matter what kind of person you
are, you can use the method / principle oriented type of plan.
No matter what, the best place to start is this: With you.
