It’s been over two months since I started this blog.
I think it would be a good time to review what a Hero On A Mission (HOAM) is.
A HOAM Has a Life Plan
Everybody’s life is better with a life plan.
The HOAM Life Plan has the following elements that you create:
- Your Aspirational Obituary – How do you want to be remembered?
- Your Story Summary – “What’s your life all about?” in two sentences.
- Your 10-Year Vision
- Your 5-Year Vision
- Your 1-Year Vision
When your life plan has all of these components you have a really clear idea of what gets you up excited for life each morning.
A HOAM Has Goals
Once you know the big picture of where your life is headed you can create some short-term goals to help you get there.
A HOAM uses Goal Setting Worksheets to create short-term goals based on your 1-Year Vision Statement.
I recommend using creating 90-day goals.
That provides real focus for what’s most important right now.
A HOAM Uses a Daily Planner
This is where vision meets everyday life.
And it’s so important to have this if you want to really experience a HOAM life.
You use the HOAM Daily Planner to think through each day’s priorities.
Both people and tasks.
And it keeps you on track and creates a strong sense of meaning.
A HOAM Has a Morning Routine
Or it could be an Evening Routine.
Or a Mid-day Routine.
Or some combination of these.
The key is to set aside a consistent time each day (or as many days as you possibly can) to read your Life Plan and your Goals and fill out your Daily Planner Sheet for that day.
After doing this fairly consistently for the last three months I can tell you:
- I’m more productive than ever.
- I’m more focused that ever.
- I’m more self-aware than ever.
- I can say “No” to good but not great opportunities more confidently than ever.
- I feel really good about what God want to do through me.
