Personal Development Layout: Planning and Tracking

Personal or Professional Development Layout

  • I wanted a layout that could serve as BOTH a plan AND a tracker
  • This layout is basically a table that includes the following columns for personal development tracking:
    • Target  (which learning / knowledge gap am I tracking)
    • Course / Book / Podcast (what did I participate in to improve my knowledge in the target area?)
    • Date (when did I do the thing)
    • PDU (# of credit hours) – omit this if you don’t have this requirement for an official accreditation
    • Notes

Some key points about this layout

  • I recommend using a blank page as a worksheet to craft your learning targets for the year (or whatever time frame you are working in)
  • Customize the columns to work for you!

What to track?

  • Courses – both certified / accredited and uncertified education
    • Udemy
    • Paid subject matter experts / blogs
    • Linked In learning
  • Books (paper and audiobooks)
  • Podcasts
  • Online articles from reputable sources (blogs, news channels, 
  • Online Instructional videos (youtube or other free videos)
  • Documentaries
  • Mentoring
