One of the most important goals people give up on, is that of personal development. From a business perspective, companies tend to focus more on training technical skills than personal development, focusing on courses that will directly benefit the business.

With the festive season now a distant memory, the year has gotten into its groove. This leads to many setting their New Year’s Resolutions aside or giving up on them entirely. Over time the idea of a New Year’s Resolution has become something of a ‘wash, rinse, repeat’ cycle – something we attempt year after year, often without real progress.

We talk about getting fitter, improving our work/life balance, learning a new skill, etc. Almost serving as a metaphor for what happens to most of our resolutions, gyms are full at the start of the year, but they are quieter by March. Somewhere along the line, something isn’t working. Could it be ‘reality setting in’, or is there something we are missing?
