and Happy End of the Year wrap-up.
In celebration of completing my work on “Life’s Battle Plan” with the excuse to learn a new skill, I’m creating a series of audio recordings that walk you through making a life plan – both for the long view and for the coming year.
If you enrolled in the 2-day teaser series for the Life’s Battle Plan email course (the full e-mail course has ended!) or if you bought the Life’s Battle Plan workbook, What Do You Want To Do With Your Life is an audio series you can listen along to in the course of doing your homework.
But if this is the first time you’ve heard of this, then welcome – start here.
This series prompts you to create a workbook full of bigger, bolder, time-planned decisions. You can go at your own pace. You can subscribe to this series both here and at my SoundCloud, and soon, I’ll make the files downloadable from the blog. The audio sessions will be gathered into themes by blog post, which may contain more than one episode. Let’s get into it.
Things you’ll need
- A journal or notebook
- A pencil
- Two colours of pen (you can use these for writing headings and post-pencil edits)
- Page flags or coloured paper clips to mark the important pages in the book
- Two different go-to spots for doing this work – such as a seat on commuter rail or a seat at a café and a cozy spot at home.
Day 1: Your Mission and Definition of Success
Like any good company or non-profit or campaign, you have to think first about how you want to be recognized or remembered. What do you want to be best known for, and what meaning does that have for you? How will you know you’re doing right by you?
You design your life’s map. Create one that has a satisfying destination and leaves a positive imprint in the world through your mission. There is no cap to what you can accomplish, but you must aim stupidly high.Jane Hwangbo, “How Money Doesn’t Work Without Purpose”
