We will call five years span of your long-term plan. So working backward from there you should have following increments:
Your Five-Year Plan
Your Three-Year Plan
Your One-Year Commitment
Your Next 90 Days
Your Weekly Plan
Your Daily Plan
Your Five-Year Plan:
Most of us cannot wait. Five years may seem like a very long time, but if you think about it, what were you doing last five years? Does it seem that they have just whizzed by? Doesn't seem that long, does it?
Your Five-Year plan should be a clearly defined vision of where you want your life to be in five years. What is it that you want to accomplish in this period of time? By diligently working your plan you can expect to arrive at that destination on schedule or early.
Five years is a good time frame for achieving one's long term goals. Some of you will do it much faster and some will do it slower, while some will not do it at all. You are going to accomplish this goal one step at a time. Your accomplishment of your goals – short-term or long-term – will depend on your personal level of commitment.
Your One-Year Plan:
Since achieving your 5-year goal is dependent upon achieving your 1-year goal, realistically you are going to have to commit to you success for one year first.
Think of this for a moment: Can you imagine Jerry Yang, co-founder of Yahoo, starting Yahoo and saying, “I am going to give this 30 days”? Absolutely not! Yet, many take that non-committal attitude toward their goals and financial future. If you are going to achieve your life's goals and financial freedom marketing on Internet, you are going to need to commit to working your plan for at least one year.
Whatever you long-term goal is (i.e. Real Estate Developer) you will need to invest first year to get your education and expertise in that area and to get your business off ground.
Here is an example of what you can expect in one year:
* You will make money * You will make mistakes * You will grow and gain wisdom * You will develop knowledge and skill * You will develop new relationships * You will become experienced * You will be doing all that it takes to fulfill your plan
Your Daily Plan:
Here you need to list everything that should be done daily to further your progress. Once you have your list you can prioritize items on your list based on following:
Priority #1: The “I Must Do Activity”
Ask yourself: How critical is accomplishing this task to meeting my One-Year goal? If task is critical then put a number 1 in margin beside it.
Priority #2: The “I Should Do Activity”
Ask yourself: Is this something I should do that is beneficial to me in achieving my One-year goal? If task falls under this category go ahead and place a number 2 in margin beside it.
Priority #3: The “I Like Doing Activity”
Ask yourself (be honest here): How relevant is accomplishing this to my achieving my goal? Have I accomplished things that I MUST and SHOULD so that I am now able to do things that I like? Place a number 3 in margin next to these items.
You will need to cut time from doing things that you like to do in order to do things that you MUST do. You will need to do whatever it takes to get Priorities #1 and #2 accomplished first.
You will have a list of all things that need to be done on a given day – fully prioritized. The accomplishment of this daily list will be foundation of your success.
The kids are screaming, you've already worked 8 hours plus 2 hours of overtime with an hour commute. How do you find time, you ask? Make It! It's called sacrifice. Commitment. It is prioritizing!
Somehow, we always find time to do things that are REALLY, REALLY important to us. If we want something enough, we will create time if we have to.
Now tell me, would such a sacrifice be worth it, in order to enjoy Freedom of time, lifestyle and finances in as little 1-3 years? You bet!
Try it! You just may be surprised.
