Chapter One: Introduction to Life Planning

What Do You Want To Do With Your Life? That is The Question

“If you don’t design your own life plan, chances are you’ll fall into someone else’s plan.  And guess what they have planned for you?  Not much.”
– Jim Rohn

“Four steps to achievement: Plan purposefully.  Prepare prayerfully.  Proceed positively.  Pursue
– William A. Ward

“By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.”
– Benjamin Franklin

“A good plan today is better than a perfect plan tomorrow.”
– George S. Patton

“Reduce your plan to writing.  The moment you complete this, you will have definitely given concrete form to the intangible desire.”
– Napoleon Hill

“Planning is bringing the future into the present so that you can do something about it now.”
– Alan Lakei


We are all unique, and we all want different things.  Therefore, no standard answer of life planning works for everyone.  Yes, opportunities are endless, but at some point we need to make up our mind where we want to go. People have so many choices that they do not know which way to look.  This is one of the major challenges of people in our society today.  New opportunities and new choices keep appearing.  When and how are people supposed to stop and make a decision on what to pursue?

Have you ever seen a falcon attacking a flock of birds?  To protect themselves, the birds flock together. The sheer number of birds makes the falcon so confused that he cannot catch them. Finally, the falcon is able to focus on one single bird, zoom in, and catch that specific bird.  Like the falcon, most people today are overwhelmed by all the alternatives they have.  They are dizzy just thinking about all the things they can do.  Many escape into easy solutions, letting someone else decide for them, letting society decide for them, or even worse, just letting coincidences decide for them.

“Like the falcon, you will need to stop focusing on the flock of birds and zoom in on the one particular bird to catch.”
– Hans Johansen

Now you have the tool that will help you sort through this.  This workbook will help you get your thoughts, ideas, and wishes organized in such a manner that you will be able to formulate the direction you want to go and how to get there.  No matter what position you are in now, or what your age, sex, nationality is, you want to make the most of your life.

“It is never too early nor too late to make a life plan.”
– Hans Johansen
