A personal growth plan is basically a blueprint to achieve one’s self-development goals. Without a detailed plan to follow, it will become very difficult to attain these goals as everything will seem like wishful thinking, especially when doubt and laziness kick in.
This personal growth plan includes the overall objectives (long-term goals) per aspect in one’s life; the short-term goals needed to improve each aspect; and the detailed process on how to achieve these goals, including contingencies should things change. If constructed well, it will not be hard to stick to the blueprint and achieve self-growth.
For example, if one wanted to become healthier so that they could live long enough to see their grandchildren graduate (long-term goal), short-term goals may include a new diet and some exercise routines – the details of which will specifically state what to do, where to do them, how long to do them, how much this may cost, and when to change things up.
