Your Life Plan –  General Structure

To be successful, a life plan is needed to turn dreams into reality. It should be simple and have basically two parts.  Knowing where you want to be at a given point in your life keeps you from wandering aimlessly.

  • What is your destination? Where do you want to be in 8 to 10 years?
  • How do you get there?

Some Simple Steps to Begin:

  • Review past history to see where you’ve been and how it differs from where you want to be. Try to determine “a purpose” in life.
  • Determine how big your dreams are?
  • Do you just want to live comfortably or accomplish something specific or important?
  • Determine and settle on a final destination.
  • Make short-term goals as a first step, but know the final objectives.
  1. Short-term goals make reaching a final destination easier.
  2. Break them down by year, by month, by week, and start with today.
  3. Measure progress.
  4. Make changes along the way as life altering things require.

Once this initial part is defined, focus on part two.

Part Two:  How to Get There   –

  1. Begin by learning how to market talents to others as needed to accomplish goals.
  2. Identify and maintain principals and personal values.
  3. Be ready to quickly change with the times or conditions. After the first goal is accomplished, evaluate performance and situation and adjust as needed.
  4. Stay focus and determined to reach established goals.

Success is never accomplished alone.. Build relationships and expand friendships.

A perfect plan isn’t as important as getting started and adapting as required. Modify the plan as it suits you, but have a detailed plan for a better life.

Isn’t it time you got started?

    Children today are more self centered and wondering what they will get rather than what they will give.

    Howard -good solid stuff- created a mindful of “awareness”- reminds me a little of Golf- when things seem to be going wrong sometimes it means going back to basics- grip/swing/slow speed- the first “muscle memory/ habits- if you will that got me back on track!
