1. Is is really written
down?Parking it in your head, your temporary buffer of goodintentions will fade.Important things are committed to paper.
2. Does it mean something
important to you? Plans must tie into deeply felt passions and motivations. If it’s important, you’ll take action. If not, you’ll have weak follow-through.
3. Is it well thought
through?Does your plan incorporate:• IN GENERAL: – Who, What, When, How, Who• SOME SPECIFICS:• Specific objectives, signs of success?• Specific actions, practices, ways to apply?• Milestones and timelines?• Signs of progress?
7. Is it in front
of you?Make it visible.Post it notes on yourcomputer.On your screen saver.Sending Textreminders.#myplantoday
