Welcome back to Life Compass, where I’m sharing my Ten Pillars of Lifestyle Design. Congratulations on making it this far! Here’s what we’ve covered in the first seven Pillars:
- Pillar #1 – Start Your Master Dream List.
- Pillar #2 – Envision Your Preferred Future.
- Pillar #3 – Clarify Your Life Purpose.
- Pillar #4 – Evaluate Your Current Reality.
- Pillar #5 – Reveal Your Personal Values.
- Pillar #6 – Set Well-Defined Goals.
- Pillar #7 – Create Your Plan of Action.
In this post, we’ll cover Pillar #8 – Identify People or Tools that Can Help.
Take a good look at your Plan of Action. Then make a list of all the people who might be able to help you achieve it. It doesn’t matter whether you know them or not. If there’s anyone at all whom you think can be of help to you, write their name down. If you don’t know them personally, then also write down who it is that you know who might know them, or who might help you get access to them.
Next, make a list of all the things you need to know or do in order to achieve your plan. For example, if your life’s dream is to be a published author, and you currently don’t know anything about how to write or market a book, then perhaps you need to attend a writer’s workshop or retreat. Or maybe you need to sign up for an agent. Whatever it is that you think you may need to know or do, write it down.
Lastly, make a list of all the tools you might need. Maybe you need a new computer in order to write your book. Maybe you need to get your home or office organized so you’ve got a good space to do your writing.
Once you’ve made your lists, start working on them. Prioritize them in the order you think is important. Then get going! Start contacting all the people who can help, make a plan to help you learn what you need to learn, and figure out how to get the tools you need to get started. You’ll be amazed at how quickly things start to move when you identify the people or tools that can help!
That’s Lifestyle Design Pillar #8 – Identify People or Tools that Can Help. Next, we’ll cover Pillar #9 – Visualize Your Success.
