Life is best lived with purpose

Life is best lived with drive and clarity. Our goals provide us with a navigating compass, helping us decide where to put our precious resources like time and money.

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.

Personal Objective Key Results - OKR

OKRs take big lofty goals, segment them into objectives, and then tie each of those objectives to actionable Key Results.

The Objective is the point on the horizon that you want to get to, and the Key Results are the measures that confirm to you that you’re making progress.

A personal mission statement is a written declaration of your core purpose, and what your priorities are.

It is different from a 'vision' statement and is a briefing on what you would be doing, not what you would be achieving.
