Start from the overall perspective and reasons, from what excites you and fulfills you and what you really want out of life.  Then go down to your goals and all the steps you will schedule to get what you want in life.

The LifePlan Notebook is a notebook in which you can create the hypothetical life you love - and then work toward turning it into reality.  It will likely have a master planning document that you can fill in - see Creating Your Life Plan   The first order of priority is to shed the limitations that our minds tend to make up, and then construct life as you'd love it if you could have anything you want - without fear, without judgments about yourself, without concern about being polite to others, with only what you want being the governing factor.  See Creating Your Life Plan.

                                                                                See Life As A Game, for a better perspective.
                                                                                See Life Plan Overview, for a structure.

CREATING YOUR LIFE PLAN

Creating your life plan will be the most significant thing you do in your life, as it creates the basis for the rest of your life!!!! 

Without it, your life is more random and definitely "less-considered", meaning you will do things in your life that you wouldn't do if you more wisely and purposely considered them.  Without doing this, you're more likely to lean your ladder(s) against the wrong wall(s), climbing them only to discover that wasn't what you would really want in the first place.

Yes, it does take some thought and some time, but it is THE most valuable time you will ever spend.

The initial plan is best done with some concentrated, set aside time, such as a 2-3 day "retreat", but it can also be done in chunks over a more extended time.  In any event, once you set up the initial plan, you will spend some time adding to or revising the plan - and, again, this will be incredibly valuable time for you.  If you want to grab a form or get an explanation go to the Detailed Contents/Links For The Planning Section.

Read:  Creating Your Life Plan (With more information than this brief intro).  Note that to set up a good plan, you should be aware of the 80-20 approach to life (see Live8020 site) and the perspective provided by First Things First, by Stephen Covey (or at least scan it).

Go to the next section if you want to get directly to The LifePlan Structure.


"IF I WANT TO LIVE AN EFFECTIVE LIFE,
I MUST  KNOW EXACTLY WHAT I WANT"

"AND, THEN, I MUST KNOW HOW  I AM GOING TO GET THERE"

See the About Me Notebook for some items that could be included in the Constructing The Life You Love Notebook but are actually things "about me" (about you).  You can include them in whichever you choose.  Set this notebook up for use, but fill in the most important pieces first.

THE LIFE PLAN STRUCTURE

This LifePlan numbering system and table of contents format will provide an easy reference system with which to build your life plan.  Of course, you can build it in pieces, after which you' would insert those pieces into this reference system and notebook structure.

Remember that you can also do the simple or medium plans also, but I would still recommend you use this structure. The Life Plan Table Of Contents.

Read:  Setting Up Your LifePlan Notebook and do it, as soon as possible. Note that you can populate the notebook initially with the blank sheets below.
