Shaping Your Life Plan

Having a life plan makes one get past the distractions and focus on what matters.Set aside an hour to do this planning exercise:

  • List 1: Jot down your lifetime goals, listing everything that comes to your mind.
  • List 2: Ask yourself ‘How would I want to spend the next five years?’ and note down the unbiased non-judgemental answer that comes in your mind.
  • List 3: Ask yourself ‘If I was to die in six months, how would I spend the time I have?’
  • List 4: Finally, list your most important goals, finding the common goals and aspirations from the previous three lists.

Looking through the most important goals, find the common thread and draft a plan of action for your life, a compelling Mission Statement, taking as much time as you want. Let it sit there for a few days and do not think about it.

Review the statement after a few days, see if it carries the magic that can be a guiding torch of your life, making any changes if required.

  • To support your mission statement, make a list of the next action steps that can be taken, however small.
  • Pick three goals from the list that can be done quickly and three that are most impactful and important for you.
  • These six goals will provide you with a road map to accomplish the Mission Statement.

If we have to master the domains of money, health, career, and relationships, we have to start from where we are.

  1. Take care of yourself with a good diet, regular exercise, and being stress-free.
  2. Take stock of the situation, performing an inventory covering your current financial situation.
  3. Know where you want to go, how you want to improve your financial life. Having a reason for the change, a personal mission statement, or internal motivation, helps move in that direction.
