Develop a Plan for Dreams and Goals – Step 1 of 21 Days of Focus

You Have to Have a Plan

If you contracted with a builder to build a house, you would expect to see an architectural plan. They wouldn’t just show up one day and start building! Your dreams, goals or projects need a plan too.

Block out time and make a list of what you want to accomplish.  This is an exercise to get the dream, goal or project out of your head and on to paper. Dreams and goals become a reality by writing them down. This sets the universe in motion as you start taking action.


Find a quiet place, ideally early in the morning before the demands of the day start, or late at night when the hustle and bustle of the day is done. Everyone has a magical time when the heart opens and a creative flow happens. For some people that time is morning (that is the time for me). For others it may be late at night. Get a notebook or journal (I keep volumes of journals) and write down your dream, goal or project and what kind of a plan you would need to accomplish it.

Need an example? Here’s what I did to create this series. I wanted to offer something of value to help others focus. I wanted to focus myself! I was busy helping my clients with their goals and websites, but I didn’t spend any time focusing on my own website and dreams. Days, weeks and months would slip away from me. I had good intentions, but I didn’t have a plan to stick to. So, to create this program I needed a plan. The plan consisted of the following steps:

  1. Writing out each step
  2. Creating a form for people to request it
  3. Setting up a series of 21 emails to deliver it
  4. Creating  a thank you page
  5. Choosing and sizing the pictures that I wanted to use
  6. Creating a video
  7. Putting it on my blog  for people to access it

There were many hours involved to bring this series to fruition.  Each one of these pieces had various steps to complete.  That’s where Step 2 happens:  Take Action on Your Plan in Small Steps.

So, Step 1 – You Have to Have a Plan

Until next time…. Stay focused!
