Popular Posts for June 3

Some of you may have noticed a slight drop in my posting frequency recently. As I mentioned in a previous post I have been hard at work on an interactive program to teach goal setting. I am really moving fast with the program because I want to get it into your hands as soon as possible (for free no less). The full program has eleven chapters with around 20 000 words in total. Consider my small drop in posts to be an investment to get the equivalent of around 15 blog entries all at once later in the summer. 😉

I’m nearing the end of my own habit experimentation to reduce the amount of internet/e-mail/RSS usage I have to 30 minutes once per day. Limiting internet usage and being a more efficient surfer is an extremely difficult habit to control, so hopefully I can share some of my own experiences in a future post. I’m considering running an experiment on various energy management techniques or starting a daily journal as my next trial. The great thing about running a personal development blog is that even if an experiment I run goes horribly wrong or just doesn’t work, I still have something to blog about.

I’m pulling out three articles from deep in my archives for you to enjoy.

  1. Balancing Today and Tomorrow – How do you achieve balance between enjoying the current moment, and improving your future for tomorrow? I have some fairly unconventional views for how to handle this problem, but they allow me to be extremely happy right now while simultaneously improving for my future.
  2. Overcoming the Frustration Barrier – The Frustration Barrier is a big reason we fail to extend past our comfort zones. Learning how to overcome this barrier can allow you to experience far more adventure and variety in your life. This was my very first post here.
  3. Enthusiasm – Enthusiasm is a necessary component of achievement and enjoyment. Become more enthusiastic to really get the most out of your life. I also include some tips on how you can easily create more enthusiasm.

Seeing as this post doesn’t have a specific focus I am going to leave the comments open for a few questions. I’ll use this feedback to help me direct future posts, so feel free to help me out.

  1. Question One: What topics/posts do you like most from this website? Is there a topic/post you would like me to write about?
  2. Question Two: What are the biggest stumbling blocks you find in your own personal development?
  3. Question Three: Has this blog helped you in your own personal development? Have you used any of the suggestions or techniques featured here?
