Have you ever experienced the drift? You know, that feeling that you’re stuck in a rut in some area of your life? You’re tired of the routine, you can’t catch a break and you just want something to change yet you have no idea how to move forward? I feel like that was my story for many years, but that’s a post for another day.
I have been listening to Michael Hyatt for a while and I came across a video that really made an impression on me. In this video, he, along with Daniel Harkavy, talks about creating a life plan. According to them, this is a simple but ground-breaking exercise that will help you gain perspective and move forward no matter how long you’ve been drifting.
Four years ago I downloaded a life plan template from Hyatt’s website. Unfortunately, I never got to do the much-needed exercise. Thankfully, it’s never too late to get on the right track. I have learned a lot more about why a life plan is important. We plan everything from our days to vacations and academic and professional careers, we should plan our lives too. A life plan incorporates every area of our lives. It helps us do the following:
- Clarify our priorities
- Maintain balance
- Filter opportunities that come our way
- Face reality
- Envision the future
- Avoid regrets.
We all want to live a full and fulfilled life but it never happens by accident. Of course we leave space for spontaneity and ultimately for God to do what He will. However, having a blueprint will take us further than drifting through life ever will.
