Develop top-notch time management skills

Ready to become an efficiency machine? Master the all-important skill of time management. Learn to organize, prioritize and make the most of every minute.

Re-evaluate your goals

Getting in touch with your goals and your 'Why' is perhaps the biggest step of all. And don't forget to turn your big goals into smaller, more attainable goals along the way.

Learn something new

Becoming proficient in Personal Development means you're constantly learning new things every day. Be curious. Ask questions. Be a student in the game of life.

Unplug from technology

Want to eliminate distractions? Turn off your computer and walk away from your cell phone every once in a while. You'll learn more, do more, and get zeroed in on work.

Reset your eating habits

Cleansing yourself from the inside out (Ultimate Reset/3-Day Refresh®, anyone?) is one of the fundamental basics of Personal Development. You'll feel better, look better, and have a more positive frame of mind.

Read between the lines

Make it a must to read at least 10 pages of a good Personal Development book every day. Need a suggestion to get started? Dive into "A Curious Mind" by Brian Grazer.

Get the most out of your commute

Here's the ultimate way to turn down time into "up" time: listen to inspirational Personal Development CD's or podcasts in the car. Talk about accelerating your success!

Find an accountability partner

Think accountability partners are just for exercise? Think again. The support of someone you trust can have a profound impact and help you reach your goals faster.

Listen to podcasts

The great thing about motivational podcasts is the flexibility factor. You can listen while working at your computer, driving in the car—even while you're working out.

Do daily affirmations

Whether it's a sign on your wall or a special screen saver, doing daily, positive affirmations can radically improve your mindset and help you stay on track.

Unwind at a weekend retreat

Self-improvement is also about recognizing the need to take a little break once in a while. Relax, rejuvenate and get re-focused on the important tasks ahead.

Tune in to the National Wake-Up call

Inspirational stories. Invaluable tips. Amazing featured speakers. It's the best way to kick off your week. If you can't catch it LIVE (US: 1-832-225-5055/Canada: 1-866-508-6941 – Password: 90405#), check out the recordings available in the Coach Online Office (Dial in Replay, US & CAN: 1-832-225-5065).

Step out of your comfort zone

Real growth comes from facing our fears head on. It may be uncomfortable at first, but the more you shake up your routine, the greater the odds you'll succeed.

Create an inspirational room

Need a recipe for results? Do a "room revamp" project and create a space that inspires you. You'll set the tone for your business, be more relaxed and watch your productivity soar.

Wake up early

If you're serious about getting more accomplished, wake up one hour earlier every day. Cultivating this one habit alone can be a definite difference maker.

Start a journal

Writing your private, reflective thoughts in a journal is a great way to clarify your thinking. You'll also gain self-awareness and be able to better track your progress.

Start a 30-day challenge

Have a bad habit you want to break? Set a goal and give yourself 30 days to achieve it. One month is just enough time to strategize, plan and succeed.

Attend events

Whatever you do, don't miss powerful Beachbody® events like Super Saturday or Coach Summit. You'll be around other successful people and can soak up their knowledge and best practices.

Take ownership

The most successful Coaches take 100% responsibility for their businesses. No blame. No excuses. Just own up to the fact that your results are based on your efforts.

Be persistent

Last but not least, be persistent and never give up. Personal Development guru, Darren Hardy, says that it's the little things you do every day that lead to success!
