Individual Development Plan
Acacia’s Individual Development Plan, or the IDP, encompasses
every aspect of personal growth.
Each member first assesses his current life with a personal
mission statement. Fundamentally, the statement should outline
what a person wants to be and do, qualities to develop,
future accomplishments and potential lifetime contributions.
The next step in the IDP exercise identifies goals in
four key life components: Physical, Social/Emotional, Mental
and Spiritual. Under the balanced approach of mind, body,
soul and spirit, men will identify their goals for each
account. This identifies the actions men can take on a daily,
weekly or monthly basis in order to maximize their net worth
in each of these accounts.
IDPs enable members to devote the most precious resource
– their time – in the areas of greatest importance. These
wise investments contribute to members living out their
personal mission statements.
