Writing a Life Plan

If I asked you to sit down and write out a 7-page plan for your life, could you do it?

livingforwardBefore I read Living Forward by Michael S. Hyatt and Daniel Harkavy, I can definitely tell you that I could not. Yet that is exactly what I did after reading it.

It has been a long time since I have been as motivated by a book as I have been by Living Forward. It is practical, straight-forward and helps you to make a plan for your life that meets your desires for your life, not theirs.

But enough about the book, because that’s not what this post is about. Really, the post is about writing my life plan.

I’ve frequently considered older women in my life who I want to be like and consider what I need to do now to be like them when I am their age. Writing my life plan allowed me to imagine who I could be in 50 years, and then making a practical plan to become that person.

By writing my life plan, it helped me put on paper (or should I say on a screen?) my priorities, making clear the reasoning behind some decisions I have made, even though I was unable to voice them at the time.

Writing the plan was relatively easy. Putting into action will require continual dedication. Yet I hope to use my life plan (reevaluated occasionally) to help steer myself in the right direction.

I thought about sharing a part of my life plan, but to be honest, it’s way too personal than I feel about placing in a public forum. However, I will likely be posting about some progress I’ve made by implementing my life plan. It’s only been a month, but I have seen progress already. Now for the hard work…
