I have undertaken a good deal of personal and professional growth. Sometimes it's not noticable, you go on with your life and you don't notice any change in yourself, but it sneeks up on you. You can't order or yell at yourself to change or improve; it's a process, not a one-shot event.
I have a yardstick for measuring your personal growth, I call it the "Five Year Plan." I look back at my life as it was thrity years ago, asking, "How was I doing? WHAT was I doing? Where did I live? Ws I getting my education? How was I sustaining myself?" Then you ask yourself the same question about your life twenty-five years ago-then twenty-then fifteen-then ten-then five-to measure your progress.
