I’ve revamped my personal development How Tos page.  How Tos are simply step-by-step recipes for results.   They are powerful because they help you build a skill or learn a technique in a rapid way.   Rather than a lot of conceptual information, they are focused on action steps.   The beauty is they turn insight into action.  Rather than learn about personal development, you can “do” personal development.”

To get a test, here are a few examples to take for a test drive:

  1. How To Read Faster
  2. How To Use Timeboxing for Getting Results
  3. How To Solve Problems with Skill

Here is the current catalog of personal development How Tos:
