5 Year Plan
Unless you are really aware of what you want in life, you will more than likely get bogged down with the day to day routine, and the bigger things just get tackled as and when they come up. Not having a plan is a very reactive way to live – and a 5 year plan changes all that so you can be proactive and take back control. Creating a 5 year plan can pay dividends for where you end up after that time. It helps to create a focus on what your priorities are and you say no to things that won’t help you reach your goals. It shows you where you need to change things, what’s possible etc. It gives you the motivation to get where you want to go. Ask yourself some questions relate things back to the 5 areas of life “S.M.I.L.E” to ensure balanced plans – social, managing the home, income, leisure, energy. Of course, without any “doing”, you won’t get to where you want to get. It is not a magic trick, and it does require work on your behalf, but it is so worth it. Get a large piece of paper and split it up into 5 sections – 1 for each year of the plan. On the bottom – write down what your planned goals are. Then, work out what steps you need to have done to get to where you want to be. Some things may be dependent on others, and some may already have specific timeframes attached to them. Be as specific as possible, and give yourself the smallest tasks possible. This is because small tasks can more easily fit into your time and larger ones will almost always be pushed aside once day to day life takes over. Lastly – add in a timeline for each task so that you get things done within those 5 years – and then add these dates to your diary. Only scheduled things get done in life – never leave to a to-do list alone, as this is not a proactive way to get things done if you have a timeline around them.
