DJH 455: how to achieve in 2023
Focus on Daily Progress
The PDP is better than the New Year's Resolution.
The PDP (personal development plan) creates a frame, and focuses on daily action, daily habits, and daily progress.
- Practice French every day for 14 days via DuoLingo
- Create an 8 episode podcast series in 3 months
- Cold-email an influencer every day for 7 days
- Read a Career Hackers blog post every day for 7 days, and write your OWN blog post about what you learned
This little games and bursts can catapult your growth.
And they focus on daily progress.
When you grow 1% a day, you grow 3700% in a year.
Focus on that, not just big lofty "someday" dreams and goals.
Where Will You be in 1 Year?
We overestimate what we can do in 1 day, and underestimate what we can accomplish in 1 year.
