The Approach

Life planning and life coaching more than a trend...

How to start a life plan?

The best way to start is by creating some time slot in your agenda. In the beginning it is advised to at least plan a session every week. It does not need to be a long session an hour might be sufficient. Putting it in your agenda is a good way to ensure you do not forget or let it slip. Alternatively you can decide to choose a fixed day. For example 'every Wednesday evening after bringing the children to bed'. The aim is to create momentum. This is exactly why new year resolution normally have little or no success. Evaluating once a year is lacking momentum which is key to successful life coaching and planning.

Taking time outs is the best investment you can do for yourself. This site contains a simple but effective free online wizard that enables you to build a Life Plan.

Basically it comes down to the steps below:

-1- What are the most important areas in your life?
-2- How do you evaluate them?
-3- How would you like to change them, what are your goals?
-4- What actions are needed to reach these goals?
-5- Execution and progress tracking

Coaching yourself

If you decide to make a life plan and coach yourself to success, you might miss the person that asks you how it went and advices you where necessary. It can be a good idea to think of some people that can help you in achieving your goals. It is definitely not a requirement, but it can help to stay focused.

Inspiring Literature

One way of staying inspired and energized is reading books about life coaching, self improvement and inspiring people. We offer various self improvement books on this website, but you will find many of them in the better book stores as well.

Listening to yourself

Depending on your personality it might be quite a challenge to start listening to your inner self. What is it that you want out of life? If the goal is to be a happier person, this is a very important phase. Life coaching can help you achieve your goals. But it is essential to ensure the goals are really yours...

Ready ?

If you have decided to start making a life plan and use life coaching techniques, be prepared to take the steps to enact your life plan. Your steps should be determined carefully, but once determined, go for it. A plan without implementation is just a paper exercise and not a lot more than a dream. Are you really ready for this?
