Most people will spend more time planning a one-off event than they will planning their life or creating a life plan.
This may include a vacation, a wedding, a birthday or anniversary celebration. Occasionally people will set New Year’s resolutions but they are often short-lived.
Rarely do most people plan their life in any significant detail. This suggests that our priorities are mixed up.
While having a plan for our lives may not be necessary, having one compared to not having one, will give us greater clarity and a higher probability that we will achieve what we want, or at least, get closer to where we want to be.
It’s better to have an idea of where we are heading than to just drift along in life, hoping we’ll somehow get to a better destination.
Having a plan for our lives can be our guiding post and help us make the right decisions to move us closer to where we want to be.
