A Life Plan Needs Focus
We need to focus clearly to develop a life plan. In my book Picture Your Life this is outlined in detail but let’s look at it briefly here. We need to open our mind to possibility!
Maryland Kowalski says… “Tim’s FRAMES work planning has helped me to plan my life. I now have my own graphic design business. He also helped me connect to free community supports and my depression is much better so I can work in my own business.”
A life plan needs to cover a variety of aspects that I call FRAMES work planning
Here is an example on how to it. FRAMES is a acronym for Fun, Relationships, Appearance and health, Mess or procrastination issues, Economics, & Service to something greater than yourself or giving back in some way.
Think about it…the Picture Of Your Life will be beautifully focused if you are having fun, have good caring relationships and someone to love for life, you are healthy, you have a action plan to get on with life, you have adequate finances and then you are giving back in some way.
I also offer affordable sessions via Skype, on the phone or in person if you would like help with your life plan. See below for my contact information.
Think about how you want the picture your life to be in the following areas.
