We all hear the same personal development tropes, but I’d like to hear about instances where personal development changes have actually made an impact.
Personal progress is the foundation of change in our lives (in my opinion). I’ve made a lot of changes in the past few years, and the real thing that doing so has been able to unlock is this: I’m able to do things I didn’t even think were possible before. So, I’m curious: what things have you done to make this kind of progress?
For me, one big change was recognizing that 1) A big reason behind why I used to be tired all the time was because I wasn't getting a full 7–8 hours of sleep, affecting mental performance and 2) Implementing a solution by recognizing that staying up for 1 more hour is taking out a mortgage on mental performance the next day. I feel like a new person now that I recognize this (personal) fact.
What about you? What things have you done to make this kind of progress in personal development, that have made a big impact? What did they unlock for you? And what are you working on now?
