题记：当突然被问到“人生规划”时，一时却无言以对，只能以“真的没有”真心应之，毕业这么多年，这个话题似乎离自己很是遥远，年少之时，不知天高地厚，一颗轻狂和浮躁的心难免抱着一些不切实际的梦想，如今经历了人生百态世间的冷暖之后，只能弯腰把梦越做越小了，作为一个PC，在工作当中不时地忙着做ramp up计划，却忘记了给自己的人生做一次ramp up plan,如今，当面对现实，需重拾年少时的希冀时，浏览着一些有关人生计划的文字，明白了有时在埋头苦干的同时，有时也需要抬头看看前面的路，因为可能在你正努力往前奔跑的时候，说不定却是你在往死路上赶的时候，同时也懂得你如果不能让自己成为一个绩优股，但你得让自己成为一个潜力股，如果你自己都不知道要去哪里，那么通常你也是哪里都去不成。|
Without a clearly defined dream, or you have no design for your life, which maybe is the very reason why you can't be promoted or earn much more. Several years ago, Gail Sheehy, an American author wrote a best-seller "Explorers", during his composing, he visited 60 thousand people from all kinds of occupations by a copy of wide-ranging "life process questionnaire" indirectly, and found out there's two common characteristics between those most successful and satisfied people, firstly, they like to make more close friends; secondly, they focus on a not-so-easy achieved goal beyond their capability. According to Sheehy's study, these explorers feel that their life is very meaningful, and enjoy a much better life than those people who have no long-term goal driven forward. As the Western proverb says, "if you don't know where you wanna go, then you usually can't go anywhere"
Life planning is not only a schedule which makes your final goal come true, but also a schedule which realizes many small targets affecting your daily life. The designing of life planning need you make your attention, and make full use of your mental and physical in a special time range. Actually, the more you make your attention, the more effective you will make use of your mental and physical. People should choose the region which can match their personal interests,personal talent advantage and the opportunity provided by social and family,it's the best choice of life orientation and easily comes true, in the contrary,personal disadvantage and area you dislike is the one we should avoid, for they're not helpful for a successful life. Life planning will allocate your energy reasonably, and here are six steps for life planning design.
Step 1: Find or make clear what is your main goal in life.
The main goal in life, it should be a lifelong pursuit fixed target, all other things in your life exist around it.For some people, it's a happy journey of self discovery, but for others, it's maybe a painful process, for they need put their mind back to the young age, when they had no doubt about their dreams, in order to find or get back your main life goal, you may ask yourself several questions, such as "who am I?", "what kind of achievements I want?", "what is the most satisfied thing in my whole life when I am dying and retrospect it?", "what kind of success from which I have a sense of achievement in my daily life?".
Maybe you will soon be able to know what is your ultimate goal, but it's another thing for most people. they need to repeat the questions above or other similar problems in different occasions before finding their ultimate aim, put it down your feelings every time when you ask yourself this kind of questions. It may be not helpful in the beginning, however, multiple accumulation will let you become enlightened at once.
People who are happy are usually such kind of person, i.e., their job and life style is basically same as their life goal, for example, a person who has a strong organizational awareness, gift for words and tendency for teaching, is possible to get maximum satisfaction from occupation as an editor, or a teacher.
Step 2: You can get ready for realizing it when you can express your life goal with a simple sentence.
In this respect, choice of occupation is a question you should focus on. You should know, occupation is a tool, a tool that actualizes your ultimate goal. The importance of schematizing your occupation, is just like a general planning a campaign or a soccer coach deciding the competition scenario of an important match.
You can ask yourself, "is my job helpful for realizing my ultimate life goal?", if the answer is no, it's time for job-hopping, and if it's unrealistic for you to change your job, you can ask yourself another question, "if there is a way that can make my job available as same as my basic life goal?", usually, the answer is yes for the second question. For example, a lawyer who is successful but not satisfied with his wealthy materially, he may get satisfied mentally by using part of his energy into doing some charitable things, and an auditor who is hired by a big company may become a partial-time professor in a college nearby, and get his satisfaction in the process of summing up experiences into theories which he can't get from his boring daily life.
The most ideal life planning in occupation,should begin after your graduation from school, when you know what kind of job you should choose and accept as long as you are clear about your life goal, undoubtedly, you would choose a job that is helpful for realizing your life goal.
However, you should remember, it's not late to start your occupation planning as long as you don't have to spend your twilight years. No matter you are a young man who is only 20 years old and has just stepped into work or a middle-aged man who is 40 years old and is lost in the job you don't like. Now is still a good opportunity for your occupation planning.
Step 3: You should consider the details of your life and occupation planning after that you figure out your occupation will help you achieve greater purpose in life.
You need a detailed personal occupation development schedule, this schedule can be a five-year plan, ten-year or twenty-year plan. No matter what time scope the plan belongs to, It should at least be able to answer the questions
1.what kind of detailed goals should I realize in my future 5 years, 10 years or 20 years?
2.How much should I get paid or what degree of the ability should I learn to earn money in the next 5 years, 10 years or 20 years?
For answering these questions, it will provide you a copy of checking list about your short-term goal. Don't simply rely on logical thinking in the process of the formations of these goals. it needs your creation for such kind of choices. Youshould mobilize your emotions, values and beliefs and other factors all together,and if you're married, you need to take your spouse's emotions, values and beliefs into consideration, for in any important choice, (s)he is part of the factors affecting your life.
Step 4: After making sure the detailed short-term goals as above, you should plan that how you achieve them.
For example, you are now a middle-management staff, and your five-year, ten-year or twenty-year personal occupation planning require you to be a senior supervisor, then how will it be possible to make your target come true? If you can answer the questions as below well, then you should know how you should do, and these questions are:
1.which special trainings should I require to make me qualified to be a senior executive?
2.what book knowledge should I learn?
3.what internal political obstacles should I exclude to make my career smooth?
4.If my current boss is a help or a disorder in this respect?
5.How much is the possibility for me to become a senior supervisor in this company? If the opportunity here is greater than in any other company?
6.How is the general education, experience and age to get the position?
Step 5: Action.
This is one of the most difficult steps in all steps, for you need to stop dreaming and effectively do it right now. As we all know, good motivation is just a condition for a goal to be established and start to be realized, but not all, If the motivation is not converted into action, motivation is always motivation, goal can only stay in the dream stage. In order to realize ultimate life goal,there are two kinds of traps we need to be careful to avoid, one is laziness,and the other is mistake, even a minor one. Laziness is an enemy of career success.
Many people keep a lifetime struggle and can't achieve their life goals perfectly, not to mention the lazy. If you wannaa life without regrets, you need to focus on it and try your best, in addition of sticking to your goal. In the process to achieve the ultimate goal of life, it's inevitable that there will be various obstacles or temptations, any mistake or error will make you far away from your target. However, to error is human; to divine is God. In the hard way to ideal, weshould make as few mistake as possible, only in this way could we achieve our goal as soon as possible.
Step 6: Continue to revise and update your life and occupation development goals.
To determine a goal is often based on special social environments and conditions, which is always changing, and the determined goal should be revised and updated, moreover,this target is written out, but not carved in stone. Its exist is only a framework for your advance, and indicates a direction. you're the creator, you can revise it, whenever it seems to lead you to a wrong way.
