INTRODUCTIONThe planning for development which is based on personal and professional developmentis very much important in order to realise the full potential of an individual. It helps the person togrow in a professional as well as personal capacity. The process targets various areas in which anindividual can work in order to improve and strive towards achieving Excellency (Hoffman andLee, 2017). There would always be suggestion coming from various streams regarding thepersonal development but one should stick to his own idea that where he wishes to seeimprovement in himself. This would allow him to gain strength and maintain efficiencythroughout. Finding faults within yourself doesn't make you a coward but proves that you arewilling to develop yourself and remove all the weaknesses it is a position of strength and oneshould always continue on those lines.TASK 11.1 Assessment of strengths and weakness of selfThere are a few pre-requisite one should know before going forward to personal development. Athorough analysis of one's strength and weakness has to be done in order to improve theirpersonality.Strength: - these are the skills about which an individual is particularly confident andknows that in any circumstances he would be able to execute them and solve the issue (Mertensand Dierckx, 2017). Like if a person has a good physique he could always pursue a career inmodelling and become a gym instructor etc. This good physique proves to be that person'sposition of strength on which he could build up a relevant career.Weakness: - are the attributes of personality which one needs to change, in order to notsuccumb under the pressure of society. In this era of cut-throat competition, where people arefighting for every possible opportunity available one needs to up their game in order to survive.Weaknesses tend to pull back a person and try to mentally block their mind that they cannot do aparticular thing which is not the case (McConville, 2017). A person should be able to spot theweakness in himself and work diligently so that they remove it and become a better person.1.2 SMART objectivesSpecific:refers to improvement in a particular field. Individual needs to have specific targets inorder to see that where they can improve and this would ensure that most of their energy goes1
forward in getting that particular thing done. And mean that person has his priorities sorted andis working to get a hold on to things he will he is not capable to perform in effective manner.Measurable: when an individual is able to measure his goal and track his performanceaccordingly that is when his chances to succeed in life increases. The goals/targets should alwaysbe measurable this would allow him so to see the amount of time he is taking to get a task doneand how he could enhance the speed and get it done quickly.Achievable: refers to the targets which could be attained in a time frame and are not fake/hoax.This is a very important aspect as it ensures that targets made are within the limits of the personto achieve and he is able to do it by getting the things right in order (O'Sullivan and Dallas K.B.,2017). The targets should always be achievable in nature as chasing unachievable task wouldonly bring despair and would lead to confusion regarding where he is moving forward in life.Relevant: is when the goals/targets designed to personal development align to the real life goals.The person would never be able to achieve glory in his life if he would keep on doing irrelevantjobs/ task. So the whole idea is to make developmental process relevant so that a person doesn'tfeel distracted and works towards achieving their goals.Time-Bound: refers to allotting to each and every goal and making sure that all the tasks aretime driven allowing a person to track his progress. This would enable individuals to see wherethey stand in life and what needs to be done in order to improve themselves (Lander and Foster,2018). They should be able to allot time to each and every task they do in order to see what timeeach activity is taking and how they could improve their efficiency.TASK 23.1 Notes Taking from oral and written sourcesNote-takingrefers to the subtle art of framing points which would help individual infurther study of the topic. It is very important to analyse these notes in order to see that mistakesfrom the past are not repeated. Making sure that all the important points are incorporated inimproving the study.
