It is often said that the truth will set you free; and yet, a solid and workable plan for the things you wish to accomplish has been proven the source of freedom and a happier, more successful life. Planning gives us power. The plans we make liberate us and lift our values and quality of living. When a person plans it improves his/her outlook on life; and as you plan you start to use your creative mind.
The creative mind helps you to envision your future as you draw from your energies, passions, wants, etc. It leads you to excitement and a joyful feeling about your future. When you plan, you reduce tension. Instead of spending each day sweating about what comes tomorrow, you learn how to live one day according to that day’s plan. Once you accomplish your daily goals, you can relax knowing that you achieved your objective for that day. When the next day comes you follow your plan charted for that day only.
You live well when you set plans. When you set plans, you know that you have the ability to change those plans as you choose. You realize that you have flexibility with your plans. For instance, if you see something in your plans that do not lead up to your short and long-term goals, you can change those plans at leisure. This is part of using your creative mind, especially when you see areas that do not lead toward your goals.
You have freedom when making plans, since you have the option to achieve your goals. When your plans include your short-term and long-term goals, and you accomplish these goals one-step at a time, you can look back to visualize your freedom and achievements.
One thing I noticed about setting goals is that often you achieve goals that you did not plan. Ironically, as you work toward your goals, it seems that other good things come your way. Look for the rewards as you start to achieve your goals.
When you set plans, you have opportunities and chances of achieving your goals. Chance, opportunities and efficiency often make a person feel good about self. This is a part of improving your personal life. When you set plans, it is best to work in logical steps to reach your goals. By doing so you make the load lighter and the road less traveled.
When a person plans, he or she is not constantly making decisions. This frees up the mind from chaos, or stress. You set your time wisely for choosing as you draw up schedules to manage your time. For this reason, you have leisure time. This means you can sit on your free time drawing visual images in your mind as you choose.
When a person plans that, have the option of adjusting their plans. When you see that something is not to your likings in your goals and plans, you can adjust them as you choose. You want to use your mental images and voices to help you adjust plans, just as you did when you first wrote your plan.
Mental images will help you to see into your future. Remember though to live for today and not tomorrow. Only use those images to set the pathway to success by writing your goals. After you finish writing your plans, time management, goals, etc, you can work toward scheduling your strategies.
Strategy planning should include errand time, fun time, goal time, study time, work time, family time, flexibility, and so on. You should also consider the unplanned as you outline your strategies that lead you to improve your personal life as you reach your goals.
