How to Create a “One-Page” Plan for Your Life
What specifically would I like to learn in my life?
How much money will I need? By when?
Who do I want to be around?
How would I like to be with the other people in my life?
Here again – keep your answers short.
Examples: How do you want to feel? Short phrases may be all that is necessary to capture the essence - creative, in-the-flow, non-stressed, adventurous.
Who do you want to be around? People who are intelligent, creative, positive, free-thinking, supportive, accepting, and/or energetic?
You want to identify top-level strategies that will make you successful in achieving your objectives over time. Ask yourself:
What strategies are appropriate and specific to who I am – my skills, desires, temperament, needs, values and how I work best?
How can I capitalize on the opportunities I see around me that I may not yet have taken advantage of?
How can I solve the key problems I see?
Take your objectives one by one (or simply pick one to focus on and begin there) and create strategies to achieve them. You may have strategies in several areas – financial, growth, partnerships, etc.
Your plans must derive from, and tie back to, your objectives and strategies.
State what actions you want to initiate and complete this year to implement your strategy(ies). Keeping a longer time frame in mind – rather than just planning for a day or week – will help insure that your Life Plan stays at the right level – not mired in day-to-day struggles.
