Seeing Your Dreams Unfold: Creating Your Plan For A Successful Year

Often times we do a great job at putting our dreams on paper, but what’s next? Do you have a plan to watch your dreams unfold?  Benjamin Franklin said “If you fail to plan, you are planning to fail.”  I believe him because I’ve seen it happen in my own life.  Having a dream or goal without having a plan is like hoping to run a marathon without ever training.  It just won’t happen.

Do you have a plan for your dreams yet?  If not, let me help you!  I’ve created a document that will allow you to deconstruct and map out your goals for 2013.  It will allow you to plan each month so that by the time December 2013 rolls around, you’ll find success and not disappointment.

Walking Out My Dreams in 2013 Example image

If you are trying to lose weight then you need a plan.  If you are trying to get out of debt then you need a plan.  If you want to write a book, start a business, or improve your relationships, you need a plan.  If not, you’ll just continue doing what you’ve been doing and get to the same place that you got last year.

Albert Einstein said that insanity is “doing the same thing over and over again and  expecting different results.”

This document will provide you with room to plan out two or your goals (feel free to print more as needed).  It will allow you the space to identify your quarterly, monthly, weekly and daily goals.

Directions: Take one of your goals and follow these three steps below.

1) Identify one goal. Look at your goals, dreams or prayers and identify ONE of them.

2) Breaking it down: Identify what you will need to accomplish each month to reach that ONE goal.  For example, if you need to lose 60 pounds this year then you will need to lose 5 pounds a month.  If you want to pay off $6,000 in debt then you will need to pay at least $500 a month. If you want to start a home business, what do you need to do first? Maybe you need business cards, find a business mentor, research the field, start a website, or find the money to start it.  Whatever it is, you’ll need the identify the steps to reaching your goal.

3) Breaking it down even further: Identify the things you will need to do (or not do) daily and/or weekly to reach that ONE goal. You will need to stay focused on what it takes for you to reach your plan: daily and weekly.  Whether that means talking with 10 new prospective clients a week, or going to the gym 4 times a week, you need to identify what you have to do daily and weekly to reach your month’s end goal.  If not, the days and weeks will slip by and you won’t have taken a step towards your goal.

Repeat these steps for each one of your goals.  Print out as many sheets as you need to.  There are two goals allotted per page.

This document will help you stay on track to reaching your goal.
