HAVE A PLAN
When we go on a vacation we have a plan. We sit down and figure out every small detail for our trip. First, we look at how much we have to spend on for our trip. Based upon our finances we decide where we can vacation. We find accommodations within our budget. We choose activities that we want to participate in while on vacation. We even factor in dining cost. No detail is left to chance.
PLAN YOUR LIFE LIKE YOU PLAN YOUR VACATION
Unfortunately, most people do not take as much care when planning the most important journey that they will ever take, the journey of life. Most people do not spend any time with themselves to learn what exactly what it is they want to do with and in their lives. Most people don’t know exactly how much money we want to earn to live the lifestyle that we desire to live (lifestyle is dictated by income). Many people don’t know where they want to live or what they would really love to do to earn an income. Most people usually leave all of those areas of their life, to chance.
TAILOR YOUR PLAN TO YOUR DESIRES
If you don’t have a plan make a plan. Sit with yourself and figure out where would you like to live. What would your home look like; where would it be (city, state, country). What kind of work would you love to perform every day, and enjoy, that would earn the amount of money that would allow you to live where you want to live and live the lifestyle that you want to live. A person without a plan is like a ship on the ocean with no itinerary, it’s just drifting aimlessly.
KNOW WHERE YOU’RE GOING
Believe me, I know from experience that a ship without an itinerary does not accidentally drift into some fun and exciting port. A ship without a travel plan will either drift aimlessly out at sea, run-aground or sink. There is a saying that I definitely believe to be true “If you don’t know where you are going, you will wind-up anywhere.” (Prison, homeless, etc.) Know where you’re going so that when your ship comes in, it comes into a vacation port of call.
HAVE YOUR PORTS OF CALL
My first job upon graduating from high school was a merchant seaman. Every ship that I worked aboard had a schedule of all of the ports that ship would travel to, the exact date and time that the ship would arrive in each port, and how long the ship would be at the dock. Interesting that a company can be that detailed about a ship but most people aren’t that detailed about their journey through life. Have a plan, follow your plan, and build a life that you will truly love.
