The One Trick To Push Your Personal Development Through The Roof


We all want to become better at this thing called life.  To continuously improve and move closer towards greatness.  But a lot of times we have no rhyme or reason how we go about it pursuing it.  Well, I learned early on that one way works.  Not just for myself, but for many others.  It’s all about your daily routine.

What do you do day in and day out that keeps you on track?  Really think about it.  Do you wake up at a certain time?  For me, I try to make sure I do the same thing and start the same way each day.  I read some inspirational quotes, go over my affirmations and check my glucose levels.

Then I devote at least ten minutes to reading something that enriches my mind and then I soak it all in.  I write down in a moleskin what I took away from the reading and limit it to one page.  Why?  Because it really makes me think about what I read and how it affects me.

Then I grab a sheet of paper and get to work on my list for the day.  I use the Ivy Lee Method to keep me on track and focused on what I want to accomplish for that particular day. I try to do all of this within the first two hours of waking up.  Then I start on my day job.  Everything is a process, but I learned that if you have a routine, it makes things a lot easier and productive.  But all of this helps to increase your personal development, tremendously.

You see, becoming better is all about doing small things, with a routine, day in and day out. It’s called Kaizen.  It means improvement in Japanese.  It’s the art of doing small things each day to become better. This way it allows you to concentrate on the tasks for the day and grow at the same time.

This is my routine, but I didn’t write it so you could use it yourself.  I want you to think long and hard and work to build your own.  Something that you can cater to your life and put to good use.  Give it a try.  What have you got to lose?  You have everything to gain.

What does your daily routine look like?  Comment below and let me know.

P.S.  If you liked this post, please share it with a friend  who you who think needs to see this.   Thanks.

  1. My hoped for routine is a period of meditation in the morning. Free writing that may or may not turn into a blog post. A smile on my face when my littles wake up. The way I use my mornings makes all the difference for the rest of my day.

  2. My daily routine currently feels scattered and unproductive. I have so much to do that I often feel like I spend half my day organizing and prioritized and not enough time doing. I think it’s time to put some thought into establishing time limits and break the bad habit before it really sticks. Thanks for the share.

    1. Mine used to be the same way Renee. Glad you recognized it and going to bake an effort to change it. Good for you and you are welcome! Try the Ivy Lee method and let me know if I can help in anyway. 🙂

  3. I really did enjoy this blog. I liked how you discusses the steps you take in your daily routine, but you didn’t give us so much information that we copy your routine step by step. Thank you for the external links as well because I found them very helpful. 😀

    1. Thanks so much, Kirsten. I am glad you captured the point I try and make each post. I aim to provide just enough information to get people to try things out on their own.

      Again, I am glad you enjoyed it. Stop by anytime! 🙂

  4. I really enjoyed this a lot! Especially because i have been feeling the same way lately and have noticed that routines help me a lot! I just wrote a post about this actually because i got a nice planner because it helps me to see my week planned out (with fun stickers too!) i think it also has something to do with focusing day to day and taking each day as it comes kind of a thing … Thanks for the share!

    1. Shannon, I am not sure how but I missed your comment! And I am like you, a visual person. I like to see things laid out in front of me, but still like to take it one day at a time. Thanks for commenting and I am going to check out your blog now! 🙂
