We all know that effective organizations continually review, evaluate and refine their action plans for success through a process called “strategic thinking and planning.” The CEO and others in the organization periodically take a candid look at the company’s strengths and weaknesses, opportunities and challenges, finances and competitive set in a changing marketplace to plan for action to better control their future. Good companies are also opportunistic. They look for those actions that can be taken now to improve their positions.
But what about you? How ironic that this activity happens all the time in our workplaces, yet few consider the same approach or model for their own lives. Life and Career Planning, LLC and its principals, Alex J. Plinio and Melissa Smith will help you to think about this through a new series of blogs. There is no reason why you can’t be more intentional when planning for your life and career. The Life and Career Planning Model© along with the book Time To Get Real! take this observation to its logical next step: the need to create a strategic plan for one’s life while being assertive about the opportunities that arise each day. The Life and Career Planning Model© directs you through the process of being the CEO of your life, turning malaise, fear or uncertainty into an action plan for personal and professional success.
While no one can predict the future, anyone can pursue a course of his or her own design to find more happiness. Reading this book and developing a life and career plan is not a quick fix but it can be the fix. There are no overnight tricks to finding true insight. The real trick is to invest thought, time and effort in developing a meaningful and disciplined plan that will enable you to weather unforeseen challenges with resilience, confidence, and self-direction while at the same time, help you to make choices as opportunities present themselves. Deep self-assessment and reflection can be uncomfortable and are not easy. It may trigger thoughts that have been avoided, resulting in inaction and “feeling stuck.“
The ultimate purpose of the Life and Career Planning Model© and Time To Get Real! is to help you better understand your life and career and how they are integrated, and to move from where you are, to an action plan, to where you want to be for your life and career.
