Continual self development in achieving objectives
- As Mark Twain explains, “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”
- Personal development is important. It voices our opportunity to create a better quality of life physically, mentally and spiritually. It opens doors and provides the satisfaction that comes only from accomplishment.
- Personal development helps you adapt to change more readily and ensures that you have the right skills in preparation for applying your chosen works in the fresh challenges ahead.
“Adapt to change quickly, the quicker you let go of old cheese, the sooner you can enjoy new cheese. (Dr Spence Johnson 1999)”
“Ken Blanchard (2004) explains that Confucius advises each of us: The essence of knowledge is having it, to use it”.
- “Colin Jackson (2008) outlines his new life after athletics, I started on that new journey at the age of thirty-five. I’ve proved to myself that you can change direction and learn something new at any time, you really can. It is possible – believe in yourself. You can succeed”.
