First, for any readers in Canada, as I am based, Happy Canada Day! We are so lucky to be living in what many global polls suggest is the best country in the world!
For everyone, I would like to wish you a Happy Semi New Year for the second half of 2019! Now, what is this “Semi New Year” business, you ask? Well, it’s something I came up with earlier this week in the continual development of my Life Strategy (draft at right) and making it a reality. I am currently making enough changes in my life that they could comprise of a set of New Year’s resolutions. However, it’s not New Year.
I am in the midst of designing the next phase of my life, as per the course at Stanford, taught through the book of the same name. In my own innovation to this process, I created what I called a Life Strategy Map (diagram below) to clarify for myself what I really wanted out of life so I can focus my living as much as possible towards achieving outcomes on that map. Since I had, both, the diagram and supporting explanatory text for me to be able to use it, I thought I’d share in case anybody wanted to try the same thing for themselves.
I’ll start with explaining what a Life Strategy Map is, and what it’s supposed to do, along with some instructions on getting the right level of details in it. In a few follow-up posts, I’ll go through mine in hopes it may clarify examples for you, and/or give you ideas for your own Life Strategy Map if you should want to try the exercise.
