No Time For Personal Development?
I used to feel like I had so much to do, therefore, I didn’t have time to fit in personal development too! Do you ever feel this way?
Successful People Find Time For Personal Growth
If successful people all find the time to do personal growth, I knew I had to change my habits to add personal development into my daily schedule. It was very tough at first! I was working 14 hrs/day at my corporate job, and I couldn’t do it there, so I started to think how could I fit it in?
Turn Your Car Into An Audio Library
Back then we had cassette tapes of personal development books, and I had to drive to work 6 days/week, so if I listened to tapes in my car while I was driving, then I could get my personal growth in my car! Then I remembered, I didn’t have a tape player in my little Nissan Pulsar. 😕 Hmmm, well I decided to buy a little hand held cassette player with speakers that I could put on the passenger seat, and play my a personal development tapes! Yes, that worked and I kept on doing this! Now I have a CD player in my car! 😀
Daily “Pockets of Time” Where We Can Learn
I also found other blocks of time in my daily routine where I could listen to personal development tapes. I placed a tape player 5 steps from my bedside and always “pressed the play button”. Here’s a list of the times I found to utilize and “press the play button” for my personal growth:
1) Getting ready in the morning from the minute I got out of bed,
2) Shower or bath time,
3) Preparing meals and cleaning up in the kitchen time,
4) Doing laundry & folding clothes time,
5) Any cleaning time in any part of the house,
6) Bathroom time,
7) Bedtime (fell asleep to personal growth tapes).
Here’s how my plan was developed:
I found times to “fit in” personal growth into my daily routine. Once I was in this routine, it became a habit, and once it was a habit, I couldn’t go a day without it! Everything changed after that! 😆 Do you think you could find some time for your personal growth plan? We’d love to hear what your personal growth plan is and how you find time in your daily routine.
