How often do you track your personal growth?

Oct 27, 2020

Staying on track when it comes to a self-improvement journey is not easy; focus, commitment, and passion are constantly needed to keep you going and help build on your personal development. How often do you track your progress? How often do you follow-up on those ambitious goals and high-minded targets? 

Many people have goals they have set but ultimately fail to stay on track. 2020 is almost ending. It has been a challenging year for everyone and of course, I know we all had goals we had set at the beginning of the year. How are they progressing? Do you see yourself achieving them by the end of the year? Ensure you track your progress; it is of paramount importance. 

Jordan Belfort once said that “the only thing standing between you and your goal is the negative story you keep telling yourself as to why you cannot achieve it.” What is that hindering you from completing your projects? I feel like this is the time for you to refine your annual, monthly, weekly, and daily goal-setting process and find out where you are going wrong. 

You will not grow if you are not measuring your progress. Why? Because there will be nothing reminding you of how hard you should keep pushing, you will run out of motivation and you will not know whether you have hit your goal. It is through measuring the progress that you are fully capable of creating the life you crave to live. 

It is quite disappointing that many of us while pursuing personal growth we do not take measures to track personal growth. I am challenging you today to put measures in place that will help you track your progress. For me, at the beginning of the year, I had put the following measures that have kept pushing me each day;

  • I set my goals. I had to understand where I am headed to and for me to do that, I had to set SMART goals. These are goals that are Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant, and Timely. 
  • I had to keep track of my progress, which I still do. I had to implement measures to track my habits, goals, and personal development. And one of my BEST tracking tools has always been a journal. I love putting my thoughts and ideas on paper. 

Remember, while tracking your personal growth, you will have those low points and failures. It is normal. What you need to do is accept your mistakes, it is part of life and part of your personal growth too as long as you can move past them and keep growing stronger and wiser regardless. 

I feel like personal growth is an essential aspect of our lives that need no ignorance. Is it possible to complete a monthly personal review of your goals? Very possible.  They will eventually evolve into something you find beneficial for helping you track your progress.
