In this episode we look at personal development measurement. There are many things we can measure in life, such as our goals, our progress on projects, our return on investments, but so few of us measure the quintessential foundation of all we achieve, the basics if you will…ourselves!
The crazy part about personal development is the effect it has on all areas of our life. So in the feature episode we dig into what we should be measuring at bare minimum and some tools we can utilize to make it effortless. Trust me, this topic not only will benefit you personally, but will help you “crush it professionally”!
I also discuss some other podcasts like Pat Flynn of Smart Passive Income that have helped get the show off the ground and running.

This sessions quote, we analyze the familiar “an apple a day, keeps the doctor away” by Benjamin Franklin.

Specifically we’ll dig into measuring personal development;
- Our activity levels. How active are we really? If you’re anything like me and spend a lot of time at a computer, the results will be quite surprising.
- Our sleep. I know I have a hard time with this one. I have many times quipped “I’ll sleep when I’m dead”! But the fact is, sleep is super important to health and performance on every level.
- Food. No this isn’t a diet session, although it could be. If we think about it our food might just be the single greatest inhibitor to us achieving our hopes, goals and desires. Food itself can make us under perform, especially if we are ingesting too much of the wrong stuff. Tracking what we eat and drink is the beginning to understanding its effect.
In the “prescription” part of the show, we discuss some tools for measuring personal development and these three key area’s of our life. I really believe that in order for measurement to be effective, it must be easy to do. If it’s not, remaining diligent, will be a challenge despite the great benefits. This is especially the case in the early stages. Below are the links to tools and resources mentioned in the show that can help make this tracking easy.
