I just finished doing my second life plan and the process was heavy, deep, exhausting and motivating. It took 20 hours in 2 days, 32 flip charts, and lots of digging deep in my heart and my head. Completing my life plan is part of the process for accomplishing one of my 2016 goals which is to be life plan certified through the Patterson Group. Actually my wife and I are going to get our certifications together to accomplish one of our missions together which is to help people live on purpose with minimal regrets.
Part of this process is to have someone walk you through the process and help you determine your life roadmap. Fortunately I had a good friend, Mark Meyer, help me with this and it was a very satisfying process in many perspectives, but the main reason is feeling like I am thinking about who I truly want to be and what really is important.
I did my first life plan on my own in 2011. Although the process was straight forward, it took dedicated time, thought, and a lot of soul searching. I recommend starting here if you can’t afford to have a life plan facilitator help you. Normally these life plans cost $3,000 which is what I did on my second life plan. I will include a link to my self-paced life plan below.
