When we first begin to get involved in the concept of self-improvement, the temptation is to immediately start developing formal plan.

This can be a mistake; or at least, premature.

The quest for a plan assumes that, of all the plans or templates available, one is as good as another.

Or the assumption is that a particular standardized approach to self-improvement will work for each of us equally well.

However, we need to remember that we each have different personalities, different lifestyles, and different life situations.

That being the case, a “cookie-cutter” program plan or template (one size fits all) is not likely to maximize our potential in our search for betterment in our lives.

Before we can adopt a plan that will truly meet our needs as distinct individuals, we need to study and absorb a lot of information from a variety of sources and experts on personal growth.

We need to increase our self-knowledge and self-awareness as to which aspects of the discipline of personal growth we need to pay the most attention to.

Once we have an idea of what our real needs are, once we have prioritized what aspects we should focus on, then we can better develop a personalized plan that will have a realistic chance of meeting our goals and objectives for improvement.

As with any effort towards tackling a complex problem, we need to first do the research and only then set down a step-by-step approach for achieving solutions.
