SMARTtarget Personal Development December 2014

The goal is to have some dialog about the skills that are most helpful in living a fulfilled life. Some suggestions to get you started include; financial management, time management, learning, and communication. It can also be suggested that you develop a creative hobby which is a right brain activity. The value of this can be appreciated by watching the TED talk Stroke of Insight, by Jill Bolte Taylor. http://www.ted.com/talks/jill_bolte_taylor_s_powerful_stroke_of_insight?language=en It is also brain stretching and respectful, to try and learn another language. This may become more important as the world becomes flatter.

It is also suggested that you watch the video on the Blue Zone project, where there is discussion on what people are doing that seems to help them make it to 100 without much problem : ) http://www.ted.com/talks/dan_buettner_how_to_live_to_be_100

To get an A in Personal Development, you need to spend 5 hours per week to improve your knowledge or skill. Make the 5 hours count :)
