Plan for Your Life

Your education will be ongoing. It will continue through your life. For the truly living, it's not going to ever stop.

In the words of Bob Dylan, "a man not busy being born is busy dying."

It might just be that we don't really die. We just stop regenerating and healing. With this commitment to your life locked in to your consciousness, you can begin to plan your life as if it might just go on forever.

Everything you learn, perceive and experience, every communications and contact with others is potential information that could be usefully integrated into your plan. But you must be very discerning not to include information that is irrelevant. So be alert, listen carefully and don't miss the diamonds in the rough.

With what you've learned in this course and the other continuing education programs to follow, you can confidently step into structuring and planning for financial independence to meet your goals and objectives. So now you are going to start doing a plan for your life.

Your Life is the Project

Your life is your most important project of all. Imagine and think deeply about what might be the action steps necessary to take this project, your life, from concept to action to completion. Now, this is quite a forward-thinking plan. You might have to look ahead seven generations into the future. But let's begin by creating a 3-month plan, a 1-year plan, and a 5-year plan. The rest will follow. Begin by formulating your purpose, if you have one. And if you don't have one, then it's time to consider what the purpose of your life just might be.

Taking Inventory

Consider your life a research project as well as your business development. If you do not have the information you need to begin or complete your individual or business plan, then you must do your own research. You can accomplish this through networking access to the key people, projects, programs and media in your local area? There is your local and regional area, national and global resources that might have to be found. You can learn how to use Internet search engines to be able to selectively find exactly what you're looking for. Remember, to have discernment in all areas of your research and be able to sort through the information and the disinformation.

As you begin to assemble the research and all the pieces of the puzzle, be sure to have a tracking system, some method of organizing and filing the information so you can retrieve it at will. Information is only as good as your ability to track it.

So first you're doing research and taking inventory. Second you've got to evaluate the information and screen for relevance. Third, you might have to create communications as well as writing a business plan, doing market research and a capitalization plan. Do not be overwhelmed. Take one step before the other, just like walking. Once you get good at it, you'll be able to run.

In summary, planning skills and evaluations include:

  1. A plan for your life
  2. Considering your life is a project
  3. Taking inventory of your resources.
