speaker christine ernst bode

Having a clear and specific life plan is the secret to living a fulfilling successful life.

Project Managers know how to get things done – define the objective, gather resources, set a timeline, manage the budget, and guide the team to success. But do we do that for our lives? A life plan is the secret to a successful life. It entails articulating what you want then setting the course to step realize that vision.



We will cover:

● Understanding our core needs.
● Choosing the parts of life you want to focus on.

The workshop will include:
● Creating your vision for each area of focus.
● Drawing a map to realize that vision.
● Maintaining the momentum.

A life plan is a tool to consciously engage in our lives, allowing us to make choices that move us in the direction we desire. That means choosing how we spend our time and our energy - and with whom. When does compromise help us and when is it a detriment? With this purposeful participation in our lives, the chances of making smooth transitions and realizing our dreams increases exponentially.

Without a life plan, we tend to not be actively engaged in our lives we float down life’s river guided by the ebbs and flows of the tide, accepting the people, jobs, activities that float in our direction. That is a choice; but there’s another way.

This workshop will teach you how to plan for a fruitful successful life and how to transition from where you are to where you want to go. As a result, you will reduce mental clutter, build momentum, reduce stress, and increase engagement in the important things in your life.

Learn to be very clear want you want in your life and how to design the steps to get there. You will shore up your personal infrastructure and plan for success.

We will cover:

Understanding our core needs.
Knowing our core needs allows us to be make sure that they are included in the significant things we do in life.

Choosing the parts of life you want to focus on.
This is the first step towards on this transformative path. What areas of your life do you want to enrich? Do you want to take a closer look at your work? Your finances? Your health and wellness? Your personal relationships?

The workshop will include:

Creating your vision for each area of focus.
A clear vision acts as your guide - when we know what we’re looking for we recognize it when we see it. And a specific vision unifies your thoughts and desires and allows you to align your focus with your efforts. It acts as a guide for you to evaluate your choices and to move forward with things that serve your vision.

Drawing a map to realize that vision.
With a clear vision, the next step is to determine the actions needed to realize your vision.

Maintaining the momentum.
We will discuss ideas to keep yourself moving in the direction of your vision.

We learn and grow through life – it is not pass/fail and we don’t get a grade. The plan can be amended along the way. When things change or unexpected events arise we pivot and revise the plan.
