YOUR LIFE A-Z: PLAN
It is the experience of the TWENTY-MINUTE COACH that without a PLAN nothing much is accomplished. Busy in your day-to-day world, sometimes a PLAN does not seem very important because your day is fairly scheduled. This lack of PLANNING is where life can get tricky because when you are so busy with life’s details you don’t notice life might be just passing you by. If you flip back to the word focus and observe those eight threads of your life what is your PLAN for each thread? What in your life needs attention in order to make your idea, dream or goal a reality? Intentions are nice but they usually go nowhere without a well designed strategic PLAN. The more detailed your PLAN of action the better you will feel about what you are doing because you are able to see the small steppingstones completed along the way. When you are not able to observe the small successes along the way discouragement often sets in and you find yourself derailed. With a written PLAN of action you are able to check off the list of steps accomplished. PLAN for each thread in your life as well as the stages of your life. You hear about PLANNING your will, your retirement, and even today we pre-plan our funerals. Hearing about something and executing a PLAN of action is the difference between living your life and watching your life from the coach of passivity. Write a PLAN, follow it and tweak it when it needs to be adjusted.
