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.
