For some just the idea of planning, especially when it a plan for living, is a challenge, they think it is a waste of time. If that is you just remember the old saying – not planning is a plan to fail. The other thing to consider is that if you are not planning things the way you want them to be, others will make the plan for you.

Planning is not as difficult as it might appear, nor is the task as daunting as it is often made out to be. The plan covers areas you are already dealing with day to day and sets them out in a way they the can be managed and addressed in a proactive manner.

The P is the part where your prepare and gather and ponder all the information you need on your current physical and psychological position. Using this information your can then design a plan that works for living your life on your terms.
The next letter L is for learning and using the lessons to become the authority on your current status. Only when you educate yourself and learn what it takes to remain in control or retake control will you be able to live life on your terms.
The A stands for two very critical pieces of the plan – acceptance and action. Some of the information you gather may be something you didn’t want to know, much less agree with. But if you have received it from the right source and you confirmed it to be fact then you must be willing to accept it and act on what the evidence affirms as necessary. Especially if that information declares that unless you take action you will be unable reach your goal.
It may require N – nerve to actually enact the plan and you may have others who scoff at the audacity of even attempting it.

Especially when you have the evidence confirming its’ validity. It is then a proven plan for a better, healthier and happier lifestyle – whose to argue the results. You may discover others will follow your example.
