130-My Personal Development Plan for 2015

I like the change of the calendar year. It's a convenient time to sit down and take an inventory of where things are and assess the plans for where things are going.

2014 was an awesome year. It was certainly one of the more challenging times of my life and was filled with change of all types. But it was awesome.

2015 will be transformative. This year, I'll be heavily focused on stepping up my game and making everything I do to be world class.

I have plenty of goals. But for me, the end result of achieving a goal is less important than who I become on the way.

Also, since there's no way for me to achieve a lofty goal without developing as a person, I tend to focus less on the goal or outcome and more on the plan of what I need to learn and who I need to become.

In today's show I share with you some of my areas of focus for 2015 and some of the plans I have for my personal development.

Here are three of my areas of focus for the coming year coupled with some of my action plans for development as an example with resources:

  1. I am a world-class business owner.
    • In order to be a world-class business owner, I need to sharpen and hone my personal productivity skills.
    • In order to be a world-class business owner, I need to strenthen my habits in these areas:

      • Plan each day's work in advance.

      • Complete my comprehensive monthly reviews, without exception.
    • In order to be a world-class business owner, I need to establish new skills and a new comfort level with outsourcing and team building. I also need to focus on automation and systematization.
