Personal Growth Plan

I have always desired to be on a continual journey of growth in my life. But I’m sick of finding at the end of every year that my various ideas to lead toward growth haven’t led to very much. This happens because I get ideas, get excited about them, and then forget them. This time I’m writing it down. Here’s the plan for this year, September 2007-August 2008.

Abandon Annually
Oct. 4-6 – Catalyst Conference in Atlanta, GA
Nov. 16/17 – Good Sense training at Willow Creek
Jan. 7-12; 14-19 — Take classes in Indianapolis
Feb. – Anniversary getaway (2/22-24 or 2/29-3/2)
March 28-30 – A Weekend To Remember marriage conference
June/July – Family trip to DC
Aug. 7-9 – Leadership Summit at Willow Creek

Measure Monthly
Church consultation meetings with Ralph Funk, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. monthly
Spend remainder of day at The Hills evaluating myself and the church each month

Withdraw Weekly
Monday – Day off. Do at least one activity specifically for me.
Weekly fast day
Weekly refocusing and accountability with Brent at staff meeting

Divert daily
Daily PSD (personal and spiritual disciplines)
Physical fitness five days/week (cardio and basic strength training)
Read one book every other week, which will require daily time set aside for reading

    Your plan looks great.

    It encourages me to write a personal growth plan as well.
