Plan the Next Year

All of us want a healthy, peaceful, prosperous life. That comes with planning and then implementing.

Consider these 12 areas when making your plan:

Category 1: Health & Fitness

Defy aging, up level your health. Create a compelling vision for how you want to look, feel and be in the future.

Category 2: Intellectual Life

Develop a vision of how you want to grow in your skills, nurture your talents and expand your learning potential. What do you want to receive: education of yourself and input from the outside world? What do you want to give: your thinking as a result of what you receive?

Category 3: Emotional Life

To have a great life, you have to experience quality emotions on an ongoing basis. What emotions do you want to consistently experience in your life?

Category 4: Character

Character – setting goals for self-discipline, goals for staying true to our words, goals for overcoming procrastination and so on.  Choose the character you want to bring into your life. The character of a doer, or the character of a taker?

Category 5: Spirituality

Almost all of what we believe about spirituality comes from what we were told as a kid, by our parents, our church or religious institution or by any other member of our family. But this may not necessarily describe your truth. Take a deep look at your own beliefs and discover what has to be added or subtracted to your own believing.

Category 6: Relationships

More than any other single factor, your relationships will determine your happiness. Take a look at 3 different kinds of relationship: our romantic love relationship, our relationship with children, and our social Life – our relationships with our friends and family. What do you want to add to or subtract from in this category?

Category 7: Parenting

Raising a child can be one of the richest, deepest experiences imaginable. It’s an intellectual, emotional and spiritual journey that can’t be duplicated in any other way. As a parent, you are under a microscope. Everything you say, everything you do – you are what a “human being” means to them.

Think about the beliefs, values and goals you have in this area. What do you want to add or subtract?

Category 8: Social Life

You are the sum of the people closest to you. Your friends and acquaintances do matter. What do you want to add or subtract?

Category 9: Finances

What do you want to add or subtract? Which financial model do you practice? Which might work better for you?

Category 10: Career

Are you doing what you love, what you’re good at and what gives tremendous value to the people around you? What do you want to add or subtract?

Category 11: Quality of Life

This category is about your happiness and joy. This is where you define the stuff you want. If you’re a “car person” this is where your cars live. If you’re a boat person, this is where you create and manifest that vision. This is where your dream house lives. It’s where exotic travel, and helicopter rides, and white sand beaches live. This is where all the material rewards for doing all this work can be found. What do you want to add or subtract?

Category 12: Life Vision

Your Life Vision – this is where all the thinking you’ve done so far will really start to come together … It’s here that you’ll realize that this isn’t about 12 things – it’s about one thing… you.

So. What is your vision for the person you want to be and the life you want to experience?  By thinking about the above areas, you’ve clarified what you want out of life. Now. Look into the causes to put in motion to create the effect you’re after. And develop a plan that outlines what it will take to achieve your vision. Take action by doing one powerful action toward the accomplishment of each goal. The main objective is for you to feel your life move in the direction you want it to – and action is the active ingredient!
