Year-End Summer Activity: Create Your Own Life Plan

It’s that time again. The summer break is upon us. A time to relax and allow everything you have learned throughout the school year to marinate in your mind. This summer break, we challenge you to take a moment to reflect on your life plan. A life plan is a roadmap. It helps you make decisions based on what’s important to you. It is a clear path that can change as your priorities change. When outlining your life plan, make sure to review and update your action plan a lot.

Steps to Creating a Life Plan: A Breakdown

1. Make a Vision: Imagine your perfect life: where you work, where you live, hobbies, etc. Imagine how you want others to see you.
2. Do a Self-Assessment: What role do you have in life? How happy are you in different areas of your life? What are your strengths and weaknesses?
3. Prioritize Your Life: Put roles, area, strengths, and weaknesses in order of what’s most important to you.
4. Identify Your Values: Your values help measure your decisions. Making decisions becomes easier when you compare them to your values.
5. Set Goals: Things you want to finish or reach in a set period of time.
6. Outline an Action Plan: Steps needed to achieve goals while following values for the end result of reaching your ideal life.

To get started on creating your life plan, it’s important to have a clear vision. A life vision is the big picture of what you want your life to look like. This can be your everyday life. It could also be your hopes for the future. Where do you want to be in 5 years? In 10 years? In 20 years? Who do you want to be in your life? What do you want to accomplish? What would you change about the world? What do you want people to remember about you? Over the summer break, you will be creating your own life vision by answering these questions.
