How to create your life plan

I saw this write-up online and decided to share it here. I am sure it will move you a step towards creating your life plan if you don’t have any yet. Think carefully and honestly about where you are now in your life. Consider work, recreation, relationships, [tag]finances[/tag] and anything else that’s important to you. And then jot down some simple, succinct bullet points in each of these categories:

  • Quality rating of your life on a scale of 1 through 100, with 100 being the best possible life
  • Realities of your life, including responsibilities, funds available to [tag]start a business[/tag], expenses
  • Things that make you happy
  • Things that make you unhappy

Your Ideal Life

This is a snapshot of your “ideal” life, in a very brief, bulleted list. And remember, the sky’s the limit, so don’t be afraid of being bold or maybe even a little grandiose. Factor in things like family time, hobbies, charity work, early retirement – anything that gets you really excited.

Your Loves: What You Really Like Doing

Think about the types of things that you love to do, whether at work, at home, or at your local soup kitchen. List these things out briefly. And don’t worry if some themes are starting to repeat in each section, that just means you have some really focused ideas about what you want in life!

Your Skills & Capabilities: What You Do Well

List the abilities, experience and strengths you can build on to attain that ideal life. Bear in mind that your skills need not be strictly from your professional life – list skills developed in your personal life as well. It may be a combination of skills that leads you to a [tag]business startup[/tag] that’s best suited to fit your needs.

Your Track Record: What You Have Experience Doing

List those accomplishments in your professional and personal life of which you’re most proud. Pay particular attention to successes you’ve had that would be helpful in starting a [tag]business[/tag] and managing it successfully.
