I help people live healthier and meaningful lives by sharing what worked for me in personal development, and I wish I had known before turning 45!

My Guide to Personal Development as a 45yo Dad

Younger Jim never cared for his well-being or for building healthy habits.

But as I got older, priorities shifted, and personal development came first on the list.

Now, as a middle-aged dad who's embraced working from home, I am in the middle of a transformation. I have already found out that small changes lead to significant shifts.

The journey of personal development often starts within. It's about fostering a healthier lifestyle, enhancing productivity, and cultivating positive habits. By doing these things—eating better, organizing my time, and making good habits—I've changed a lot for the better, both physically and mentally.

First off, being healthy! I've been eating better and MUCH LESS food. And guess what? I've been a lot more active doing the simplest workout we can all do: walking!

I aim for over 10,000 steps every day! It's like going on an adventure and it makes me feel super happy and full of energy.

Some would say it's a waste of time. Nonsense.

During my daily walks, I listen to podcasts and audiobooks, learning about entrepreneurship, business, and marketing! All this also helped me avoid negative self-talk, as well. Win-win.

Then there's doing more stuff without getting tired. Since I work from home, I have to make sure I use my time wisely. So, I've learned how to organize my day better. This way, I get lots of work done but still have time for fun things with the family.
