1. Developing a Personal Vision Personal development can simply be for fun. Most of us, however,  find it easier to motivate ourselves to learn and improve if we have a  purpose in doing so. Developing your personal vision - a clear idea of  where you want to be in a few months or years, and why - is a crucial  part of developing this purpose. 2. Planning Your Personal Development Once you are clear about where you want to be, you can start  planning how to get there. Drawing up a personal development plan is not  essential, but it does make the planning process more realistic. For more about this part of the process, take a look at our page on planning your personal development plan. If you are struggling to identify which areas to target for  development and improvement and doing a personal SWOT analysis. 3. Starting the Improvement Process There are a number of different ways in which you can learn and develop. Our page on improving personal development explains some ways of learning, including a technique called expertise transfer. 4. Recording Your Personal Development It is often a good idea to keep a record of your personal  development. By writing down key developments in your learning and  development as and when they occur, you will be able to reflect on your  successes at a later date. This reflection may well help to motivate you to learn more skills  in the future. Try keeping a learning log or journal as you develop your  skills and knowledge. 5. Reviewing and Revising Personal Development Plans For more effective learning, it is important to reflect on your  experience, and consider what you have learnt from it. Regular review of  your personal development plans, and your development activities, will  ensure that you learn from what you have done. It will also ensure that  your activities continue to move you towards your goals, and that your  goals or vision remain relevant to you. --- Support this podcast:
