When a plan comes together even if it doesn’t execute the way you expect, you gotta love the guidance that a plan provides. Whether it is a list that helps you accomplish a day’s worth of tasks ora ten year plan like I wrote this morning, it offers some focus even when I know that the world is changing so quickly that what I see from today won’t be the same a year from now.
The plan I created focused on health, relationships, vocation, avocation, fun, and finance. As I wrote I began to fill in some detail as to what it would take to get to that strategic position on July 4 2026 and celebrated a bit the opportunity that is laid in front of me.
There was a focus on sustainability – are their enough resources, is it ecological within my values and does it have enough of a challenge to keep me motivated?
How does community interact with finances and how can we participate in the gift economy more fully. What role do I want to play in the vast relationships I have and can I do that from a distance? Where would the ‘from a distance’ be? Would it be one place or many? How could many happen?
I viewed ten years from now from the vantage point of today so my health plan is a maintenance program of what I am doing and the improvements the past three years have brought.
Part of the plan includes spending more time with people who are important to me so I am going to do that right now.
