How to build your perfect planner system? Week 7: Values - most important things in your life

I think planning is going well already in daily basis, isn't it? What are your experiences with the reviews? I hope you don't forget them!
It's time to make a step back and take a look on a larger picture. What is your purpose in life? Why are you doing what you are doing? Are those tasks really those what you should do? Or here would be something else? Hard questions, I know. But if you want to plan your life, you have to answer (for yourself only of course :)).

Do some brain dump

1. Take a piece of paper (large enough) or the Values Worksheet, and try to write values come to your mind, which are important for you. Like these:
  • Health
  • Family relationships
  • Work
  • Personal development
  • Independence
  • etc
Don't  care about the order for now!

The most importants

Choose maximum 10 from above, which are the most important. To all of them write 3-5 things you can do get closer to your goal. Every little thing is count! This is braindump, don't take care about silly ideas also! Write it down!

Mind map

Now try to make a sketch as a map - what belongs to each other?

In a few days I will send out my next Newsletter including a worksheet doing this exercise!

Homework for next week:

Make this exercise, we will use it later! Make the next weekly review too. The monthly is also not far away.

  1. I've never thought of planning around what I value before.

    My family.

    Good food.

    Good company.


    Maybe I need my plan to focus more on those things.

    1. But if you have to choose, it helps hopefully to know these.
