One of my new goals is to develop my own bucket list. I have read on many a sites recently different types of bucket lists that inspire me for the moment, but I am too lazy to create my own. The bucket list does not just get you motivated to live life, but it also gets you to somewhat organize your plans for the future. And that is why today’s article is called Organizing Your Life’s Plan.
Before I move forward, I want to state that I, by no means, think organizing a life plan will fall into place exactly as I write it. I doubt half of what I write down will actually end up happening. However, it will get me to think about what I want in the future and how I can attain such. Looking ahead is amazing when thinking positive and when living life to it’s fullest currently. I also want to make it clear that this isn’t just a push to make a bucket list. I think they are great and need to make one yesterday. But this is more a life plan involving one’s career life, family life, goal life, etc. which includes one’s bucket list. Organizing a life plan now doesn’t mean you can’t change it down the road. It is just a guide towards furthering yourself towards your dreams. Now that that is explained, let’s move to the fun part…planning a healthy, exciting, goal-driven, success had life.
There are countless factors that need to be brought into consideration when planning one’s life. If you want to experience all life has to offer, you are going to want to view any and every opportunity as a chance to build upon your plan. Without taking those opportunities, you may never realize the full potential of your life. So if chances are present, take them and let them build upon your life’s plan. Another factor is who you are going to want to build your life with. Whether it is with lifelong friends or a big family, you will want to consider who you want to share your wonderful life. These friends and family will be a great support team in your growth. What many would consider an important factor is one’s mode of financial backing. Whether that is through a career in a big law firm or as a wandering nomad, discovering what financial needs are needed through planning will help get you to your lifestyle destination.
In combining these prime factors and then building upon them, we can come up with the following Organization Plan for Your Life:
- Dreams/Goals: What are your dreams, goals, desires, aspirations, etc.? These will be your base for structuring everything else that you do in your life. These are the single most important factors in one’s life. So definitely address these from the get go.
- Talents/Skills/Characteristics: What skills do you have and/or want to develop? Your skills and talents will mold the person you are. If you are a philanthropist, then who you build a family with, what type of career you choose, where you live and so on are all based on those characteristics.
- Bonds/Ties/Relationships: Who you build your life with will determine the importance factor of each of the preceding life factors.
- Worst Case Scenario: This may sound counter-productive. However, I have taken Tim Ferris’ attitude towards this. What is the worst case scenario and build a structure from which you can restart up your path to your dreams and goals. I always look to be positive, but I also consider the worst case scenario. By doing so, I begin to think about my actions following such. Once again, this is a plan and by planning for the worst case scenario, you will be better prepped for making a comeback. And even ig the worst case scenario does happen, truly how bad off will you be. I think not so bad and still capable of achieving one’s dreams and goals.
This developed organized plan is just a starter. You have to build it to what fits your life’s plan. Hopefully, this is a great jumping off point to planning a glorious excursion through life.
