Your Decadal Plan

Uncategorized Nov 10, 2019

The end of the year is fast approaching.  Wait.  It's the end of a DECADE!  Have you made your Decadal Plan?  Decade as an adjective is Decadal.  10 year plan = Decadal Plan.

With such a monumental milestone at our doorstep, STOP running for a moment.  Take a breath.  Reflect where you are from three perspectives.

Perspective #1.  The Gratitude View

Get settled.  Take another deep breath.  Now, recall ONE memory over the last 10 years that brings you joy.  Got it?  Bathe in that memory for a bit.  <PAUSE>  For me, the first ten-year memory that made me smile was my daughter getting married.  I remember the wedding day like it was yesterday.  My breath gets taken away when I see her in her wedding dress.  I walk down the aisle and 'give her away.'  At the reception, the song, "You've Got a Friend" by James Taylor is our father-daughter dance.  To this day, whenever I hear that song, I get misty-eyed or just full-out cry.  SO embarrassing when I'm on a flight! 

Now that you have that one joyful memory embedded firmly in your brain, go through the last decade and make a list of all the wonderful events and achievements.  This is your Gratitude View.  When I look at my list of 20 milestones, I'm AMAZED at how far I've come in just 10 years!  Aren't you?

Perspective #2.  The Dream View

10 years is a long time to look forward:  January 2030.  What big dream or aspiration do you hold deep in your heart?  In your soul?  Want to become best-selling author?  Watch your children grow from teenagers into happy and productive adults?  Grow your business exponentially?  Pick up a new craft or profession or vocation?  Create a lifestyle of personal and financial freedom?  What is your Big Dream? 

Make that dream specific:  Describe where you are sitting.  What are you looking at?  Who's around you?  How does your day unfold?  Spend time really dreaming into this view.  Journal it!

My 10-year dream?  I'm living into my life's mission with zest.  As I'm writing my weekly Wisdom 4 Humanity broadcast to you, I glance over my computer into a serene body of water.  My Wisdom 4 Humanity movement hums along as people (like you) are changing the world for GOOD!  My grandkids are teenagers and my daughters are in their 40's.  YIKES!!! 

Now that you have your 10 Year Dream View….

Perspective #3.  The DO NOW View

If you want that dream to come true, what 2-3 things do you need to learn NOW to make that happen?  Want to write a book?  Learn to write.  How will you do that?  Begin by writing a blog post every week.  That's MY strategy.  I have 4 books in me to write.  One way to build my competence is to write these weekly broadcasts for you.  Every event in your life, easy or challenging, heart-warming or heart-breaking, is training for Life's Next Big Step.  So what 2-3 things do you need to learn to make your dream come true?

What can you do TODAY to begin your 10 year journey?  Don't put it off.  Just … DO NOW! 

Make your dreams come true and live into your Best Authentic Self!
