Personal Processes for Success

The most interesting piece of info I learned recently is the most successful people are people with processes. Processes aren’t just for business. People need processes also. Be more efficient, consist (people know they can depend on you), focused (don’t get derailed), and continuously improve (always finding ways to be better and deal with challenges.


Implementing processes in personal life can significantly enhance efficiency, reliability, focus, and continuous improvement. Here are some examples of how processes can be applied in various aspects of personal life:
