To achieve your Life's Dreams is Simple:

1. Know what you want
2. Understand what it takes
3. Do the work. Day in. Day out

I can't do the work for you,

But, I can help you with the first two:
Jim Rohn said,

If you don’t design your own life plan, chances are you’ll fall into someone else’s plan.

And guess what they have planned for you? Not much.

The important thing for you to remember is a Crap Map is Better Than No Map!

Now, let's build one 👇
• Ikigai

A Japanese concept meant to help you find your purpose in life aligned with your values.

It's the intersection of what:

• You Love
• You’re Good At
• The World Needs
• You Can Get Paid For

Use your Ikigai to set your goals and live your purpose.
• North Star

Start with your values.

Use your values and your Ikigai to define your purpose.

Create a vision of exactly what you want your life to look like in the future – that's your North Star.

Your days, weeks, months and years should be guided by this on a steady march.
• 5 Year Plans

A 5-Year Plan's far enough in the future that you can build a Life Roadmap that involves exponential thinking.

And, it’s close enough in the future that it isn’t hazy.

Visualize where you want to be in 5 Years
and break it down into achievable steps.
• SMART Goals

SMART Goals are Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant and Time-bound.

Instead of saying I'm going to lose weight, you'll say:

I will lose 20 pounds in the next three months by reducing my calories by 500 per day and increasing my exercise by 30 minutes.
• The 80 | 20 Rule

The Pareto Principle states 80% of your results are driven by 20% of your activities.

When you focus on important tasks, you’ll achieve greater results with less effort.

This is why you can drink Starbucks and eat avocado toast and still be a millionaire.
• Begin with the End in Mind

Regardless of what method you choose, bring it back to this.

When you begin with the end in mind, your goal is to bring it back to habits:

Break it down to years
Reduce to quarters
Down to months
Cut to weeks
Then days
To achieve your Life's Dreams, create your Life Roadmap:

• Ikigai
• North Star
• 5 Year Plans
• SMART Goals
• The 80 | 20 Rule
• Value-Based Planning
• Begin with the End in Mind
