Personal Development

One Day Today

Commit to yourself, start now

  1. Define
    • Decide on what you are going to do and most importantly the ‘why’ behind it. Motivation will not always be there but your innate passion and belief will drive you to success.

  2. Plan
    • Create an outline of your idea in a way that is simple but covers all the bases of what you want to achieve (goals) and the steps to get there (action plan). Once you have this at a high level work backwards and fill in the smaller steps that you need to take to get to each major milestone. For example, for this blog I bought an excel tracker from Etsy to help me define and envision what I wanted this blog to represent from aesthetic to content categories and platforms. Once you have a clear vision you can move on to Step 3.

  3. Execute
    • Based on your plan that you defined in Step 2; start at the start. Take the first task and complete it. For me, I needed to set up a host and domain. I needed to meet up with an expert to advise me on the best options as I am not knowledgable fully in this field. When planning in Step 2 this is the type of granular level task you need to consider when building out a plan to reach your milestones.

  4. Monitor
    • Once you implement your vision and begin to get traction monitor your progress by key performance indicators (KPIs) that you define. For a blog this could be traffic, number of posts per week or advertising revenue. By monitoring your KPIs this enables you to see what is working and what needs to be adapted in order to improve your outcome based on what your goal is.

  5. Adapt
    • After gathering your data in Step 4 analyse and reflect on it. What do you need to change? Or do you need to change at all? Use your plan from Step 2 in order to tailor your next actions.
