  • Get your Personal Bearings
    • Become aware of how you are spending/wasting your life
  • Create a stop doing list
    • I read came across an article by Daniel LaPorte that talks about creating a stop doing list.  You end up gaining more time because you’re no longer doing the things that waste time.  This action item makes a lot of sense.  Why not stop doing things that waste your time.  To see the article by Danielle LaPorte
    • Create a list of things you’re going to stop doing
  • Develop or revisit your Personal Vision
    • As events occur in your life, you perspective on what matters can change.
    • Check your Personal Vision to see if it’s aligned with your Values.
  • Develop or revisit your Personal Mission
    • If your Personal Vision is the same as last year, then check your Personal Mission alignment to your Personal Vision?
    • If your Personal Vision has changed this year, then check your Personal Mission alignment with the current Personal Vision.
    • Will your Personal Mission accomplish your Personal Vision?
  • Establish SMART Mission based Goals
    • Specific           – detailed information about the objective
    • Measurable   – quanity or quality that helps you know your objective has been met
    • Achievable   – under your control within timeframe alloted
    • Relevant        – advances the mission
    • Time-bound – calendar date or frequency for Goal
  • Manage your personal time better
    • Eliminate insignificant things that steal your time by using the stop doing list
    • Do remarkable things by making time for your Mission based Goals
