Mapping My Future

My life is pretty great right now, probably better than ever in spite of a few challenges, but some aspects either seem to be out of control or lack vision.

Several years ago, I found Michael Hyatt’s e-book titled Creating Your Personal Life Plan at his website, filed it away as something that may be useful some day, and ambled blindly forward with my life. Thank goodness I pulled that ace back out of the deck and invested several hours designing my own life plan today.

Checking out Hyatt’s …Life Plan would be a worthy investment of your time. The man himself lays it out for you in his video embedded below. It’s a little infomercially–he gets paid to talk about leadership, life balance, productivity, and social media–but it gets the idea across in 2min 20sec.

…most people spend more time planning a one-week vacation than they spend planning their life. –Michael Hyatt

Great point, and true. I have spent more time deciding where to go for vacation than deciding where I want to be in five years. Now I am working to change that. The outline I’ve crafted so far is looking pretty good and I look forward to filling in the details so I can have a map to navigate my future.
