Planning your Future

In our first round of posts Matt and I talked about What’s Important to You.  In that discussion we briefly mentioned our Values or our Guiding Principles.

Having decided what’s Important to Me I began taking steps to set my priorities straight and put myself on a path that would allow me to pursue my passions.

What’s Important to Me:

  • Friendships
  • Family
  • Happiness
  • Comfort
  • Health
  • Honesty
  • Soccer
  • Financial Independence
  • Feeling fulfilled
  • Seeing and trying new things
  • Self-Improvement

I decided to write down specifically what I want to do and where I want to go in life.  As Matt likes to say “You can’t get anywhere unless you know where you’re going.”

I Want To Be:

  • Financially Secure – Money in the bank, good cash flow, and the financial freedom to pursue my interests.
  • Healthy – I want to be fit, active and in decent shape.
  • Fulfilled – This means I can spend time challenging myself with new things, learning and acquiring new skills.

I went a step further and wrote down the things I want to be able to do in my life because, as Matt likes to say “You can’t know how to get somewhere unless you know where you want to go!”

**NOTE: Some people call this Dreamlining, a term that I think is dumb, I don’t dream, I DO**

I Want to Accomplish in my Life

  • Start and Run my own business
  • Travel
  • Build new products to improve the world
  • Spend time with the people I love; my friends, my family
  • Work to improve myself regularly

I’m a big believer in pursuing the things that make you happy so it was (and still is) very important to me to continually work towards these goals.  More about how I did that next week…
