Create a Personal Mission Statement
If done well, a personal mission statement will provide you with clear boundaries for all of your goals, plans and priorities. Every goal you develop should support your mission statement.
Create a ‘Must Do in Life’ List
Create a list of all the things you want to do, be, and experience before you leave this planet, then compare your list to your personal mission statement to ensure the items on your list support your statement.
Spend some Quality Quiet Time
Spend time regularly to reflect on your life and your next steps. An hour a month, a half-day every 6 months, a full day once a year – whatever works for you. Just find some time to quiet the noise for uninterrupted thinking and reflection.
Determine Your Ideal Life
Have you ever written down and defined exactly what an ideal day, week, month and year would look like for you? This is a great starting point to develop goals that will ultimately lead to a life full of happiness and joy.
Develop a Life Plan
Follow an effective life planning process to develop a life plan. A good life planning process will help you figure out exactly what you want to do with your life, develop goals, create a plan and help you prioritise efficiently.
Develop a planning schedule that works for you
Consider committing to a specific time period where you will revisit the direction you’re going and/or revise your life plan. Figure out what time period works best for you and put a recurring reminder on your calendar.
