Have you written a life-plan or do you feel that is not for you, or have you noticed and thought that life is just passing you by, feeling that you are just living your life from day-to-day?  When all you are doing is trying to make it to the end of the week or the end of the month. Isn’t it time you started to make simple goals that you can achieve? There is an old saying that is If you fail to plan you plan to fail. What is not said is that if you do not set realistic goals they’ll fail anyway because goals without set parameters go nowhere. 

To gain control of your life you need to set a simple life-plan together one that will help you to achieve some success in the areas of your life you feel are lacking!

A life-plan gives you:

  • A clear direction you are trying to go in.
  • The motivation to move your life further forward.
  • The focus for achieving your goals.
  • More certainty regarding your future.
  • More clarity and the ability to turn your visions and dreams into a reality.

Those of you who have run businesses know that a well thought out and logical business plan is one of the most important keys to running a successful business. In a lot of businesses I have gone into, you would be surprised how many of them have just put them into the bottom draw of the filling cabinet. It is the same with a life-plan, few people have taken the time and trouble to create a written one.

A plan that details all your visions, dreams, and goals as you go through life should be written down. Just as in business, if you want to have a fulfilling life you must work at it! You do this by writing a plan as the first step.

Look deeply at where you are now, look again at the visions, dreams, and goals you want to attain, one could say it’s like the chicken and egg. You must know yourself to discover those visions and dreams to shape who you are. However, to reach a conclusion, you need to write a detailed plan of how you intend to reach and achieve your visions and dreams, you must know who you are. To find out, you need to fill in a SWOT analysis this will give you your Strengths-Weaknesses-Opportunities-Threats, your core values, and beliefs.

Harvard Business Study

A Harvard Business study showed some remarkable figures relating to goals and success. It found that:

  • 83% of the population does not have goals.
  • 14% of the population have unwritten goals, but only a plan in mind
    3% of the population have goals written down.

The study found that the 14% who have goals are 10 times more successful than those without goals.

The 3% with written goals are 3 times more successful that the 14% with unwritten goals.

Clearly, a person is more likely to achieve a goal if it is written down.
