After following my personal development plan for several months now, I have decided to revisit my PDP and identify some primary areas of Improvement. This week I have identified that my time management skills seem to be slipping up, and it seems to be affecting the ability to do work within a certain given times, I have decided that I need to start tracking and managing my time by creating a timetable to do list in which certain work will be completed within a certain personal goal.

Personal Development Plan
I plan on finishing my A-Levels and achieving above 250 UCAS points.
Once I have this I would then like to;
Continue my job and aim for a higher level.
Eventually learn how to drive and obtain a motor vehicle
I would also very much like to travel the world, to be specific New York USA and Antananarivo.
Look into computer sciences and develop a further understanding of the subject.
Pursue a career in Business Management or Computer Science
I would like to become healthier by staying fit and exercising.
Eating healthier will also let me continue my healthy lifestyle
Develop a side career in either web design or similar graphic designs.
Focus more on my leadership styles to help me progress as a successful leader. Being an autocratic leader is not always the best form of leadership and has weaknesses. I need to target the elements of autocratic leadership that could create conflict and eliminate them from my overall leadership style. Although I believe being an autocratic leader still is the most effective for getting work done, if I were to take a more democratic view on leading and incorporate a more consultative leadership style this could not only prevent conflict between my self and my co-workers/team mates it could also help me in achieving the common goal of the group
