Personal growth 101: The Importance of focusing on action November 14, 2017

One of the traps inherent in good personal development programs is that they are interesting media in themselves — they are entertaining — and if we aren’t careful, we can end up doing a lot of “research” on them but not implementing much of what we are learning.

This is especially true when we first start out on our deliberate path to develop our personal potential. But study should be an adjunct to growth, not a replacement for action and implementation.

So we need to make a decision on what program or philosophy we are going to implement.
Perhaps it will be a single system of ideas from one of the many recognized experts in this field.

Or an effective program can be one that we put together and systematize ourselves, choosing the best elements of different expert approaches that we feel will work best for our personalities and circumstances.

Another less programmed approach to implementation is to read, listen to, watch, and ideally make notes on the work of a variety of self-improvement experts, and then draw on this knowledge when situations in your life call for a little extra help beyond your intuitive resources.

There’s no absolutely right way to begin the journey of self-actualization.

The important thing is to be taking some form of action whenever possible and as soon as possible.
