Thanks for visiting. This site is about personal growth and professional development. What’s the difference? Personal professional development is about what you need to thrive in your workplace. If you are fortunate, your company pays for pro-d and determines the training you get to benefit the business. That sounds fair.
But what about the other areas you are interested in outside your job? That’s where personal growth comes in. It could be work-related yet not directly focussed on your current job. Most organizations won’t pay for this but here is where you can make a commitment to invest in yourself.
Personal growth is about steering the ship of your life with you as the captain. It is about figuring out your areas of giftedness (some dormant), passion (some forgotten), and call (the need of the world). It is about discovering your personal sweet-spot where gift, passion, and call intersect. Most of us live on autopilot. If we are lucky, we had some input in setting the original course and live some part of our lives in the sweet spot.
When you invest in your personal growth, you intentionally identify the elements that make up your sweet spot and make it grow bigger! If your sweet spot is small today, you can grow it bigger next year, and the year after. Most of us overestimate what we can do in a year, but grossly underestimate who we can become in a decade.
