Life’s Battle Plan – become clear, committed, and congruent with what you want out of life

Life’s Battle Plan is meant for people facing a period of change and renewal. It can also be used whenever New Year’s or Labour Day approaches.

If you’ve landed on this page, you’re looking for help – self-help, or tools that coaches might use – to gain clarity about what you want to do in life. You’ve read enough (too many?) motivation articles on the internet, and you’re ready to take some action.

Perhaps you’re wary of being coached into someone else’s system that can come across as HR type-casting, or another practice like something you’ve tried before, but didn’t serve you well.

When facing a significant life change — whether career or family or new aspirations — you need to know what you want and what activities you’re satisfied doing. You also need to know the subject and market for the work you want to do. Then, do the outreach and networking to find your place, and adjust to your new schedule and conditions.

What you need, that no one else can provide, is a self-directed, inspirational, and actionable life plan.

Regarding the things you want to do with your life that aren’t career-oriented, and may never be career-oriented: There’s a lot of room in this world for people to serve and fulfill their needs in ways other than employment. When you put your personal goals last, and unpaid work goes undone, both you and the world goes without – and everyone suffers. So you have to consider everything that has meaning for you and where it intersects the needs of the world, and what you want to do just because you (and your friends, family, and other fans!) love it.

Life’s Battle Plan is a simple framework and repository to help you gather and organize your dreams and strategies to live the life you were meant to live.

As a fillable PDF, I recommend printing it and working by hand, and when you’re done, transcribe your clarified notes to it. Keep it handy to check and update as you plan and carry out your goals over the next two years (or more).

There is also a bonus 10-day email course that I created to walk people through the workbook. There’s a free 2-day intro for the course, but the full course is for those who purchase the PDF planner.

At the end, you’ll have a set of milestones for your next 10 years, a checkable list of things you want to do anyway, an action plan for the next three months, a set of goals for thematic and pragmatic (everyone-needs-these, such as home, career, and finance) domains, and set of projects for now and the future. Having it all in one plan allows you to revisit and review it up to four times a year.

You will get over being overwhelmed.
You will get more done of the things you want to do.
You will be more aligned with your true path.

Here’s what one user of Life’s Battle Plan said:

I wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed your email series. It was quite a journey, but I feel so much more focused and ready for the year. Here’s what I found supremely useful and great:
– the Present Pain List: it’s all so true, and it’s great to focus on clearing things
– the long-term future planning. This was scary, especially because I have kids. I realized that deadlines come up really fast, and I’ve been avoiding thinking of my kids growing up. Time to do things from the bucket list!
– Planning the year by quarters, broken into lists by month – I love the reminders to plan holidays!
I am starting a new job soon. Your tools really helped me think things through – so thank you!

–Beth Darrow

2-day intro to the email course:

If you’re curious, act now. I’m altering the email series according to this change in direction, and as a creative person, sometimes things really do change once Ive begun.

You'll need to confirm your e-mail to get on the list, and options in your profile include your location, birthday, and topics you find interesting.

At the centre of your being you have the answer; you know who you are and you know what you want." – Lao-tzu
