Plan Your Life with Short and Long Time Plans
Plan to Change and Improve
Detailed Life Change Plan
How to be successful in your professional and private life and happy throughout your life.
If you believe that you will be happy as soon as you make a lot of money, you are wrong. You can be successful in your professional life, but generally unhappy. You can be poor and happy. Too many people are focused on one area of their life and don’t know how to get both – success and happiness. Neither success nor happiness comes by itself. Both need your attention. If you want both, you have to plan it. Stop the conflict between having to choose making money and being there for your family.
I am going to explain to you why it is important to make a plan for your life and the changes you intend to make and that you will profit from it long into the future.
If you don’t know the destination, you can’t plan a travel route. Are you going through life without knowing the destination? If you say in a restaurant, you don’t know what you want to eat, they should bring you anything, you have to be prepared that they bring you something you dislike. Why take the risk? You always have the opportunity to choose. Take advantage of this opportunity. You have the choice on how you want to live. Don’t let your life pass uncontrolled, plan it.
Every company has short, medium and long term plans. A life is much more complex as a company, but only a few people make plans.
Make a list of what you want in life. What are your goals? What do you want to achieve. Give every point on the list a priority and then make several lists representing short, medium and long term plans. The short term plan has goals you want to achieve in the coming 6 to 12 months. In the medium term plan you set goals you want to achieve in the coming 1 to 5 years. The long term plan has goals you want to achieve in 5 to 10 years or longer. Read on to get instructions for planning your life:
1. Plan to Change the Programming of Your Subconscious Mind
If you want to profoundly change your life, start with a general plan. This is the moment where you may say: “I want to change quite everything about myself and my life.” Then you determine what and how you want to change. Then plan your life and in the fine tuning of your plan, focus on each single change you wish to accomplish and think about what is necessary to accomplish it.
You have decided to change your life, but you have not yet determined how exactly you want it to change and how to change it. Or you have tried to change your life, but you seem to be stuck and nothing you try to do is working out. Only wanting to change your life is a wishful thinking that does not get you results.
Write down how you plan to change your subconscious mind.
2. Preparation to Change Your Life
Let me be frank at this point: “You have to dare more!” You will be surprised what a difference this makes. When you only think of little changes, you are not challenged. A little change is buying one new outfit. A big change is buying a new wardrobe. Doing the repair on old stuff can take more time and money as making it possible to renew everything.
When you plan to change your life, you must determine what you have to do to make the planned changes. Consciously prepare yourself to change, which means, to set your mind to what you want to change and to achieve these changes. Know about the co-existence of the conscious and the subconscious mind. When the subconscious mind is not in line with your consciously set goals, it is very difficult to accomplish them. As soon as the subconscious mind is in line with your goals, it will be easy to reach them.
To make your plan work out, you have to reprogram your subconscious mind to be in line with your consciously made life plan. When programmed right, your subconscious mind will assist you to achieve what you have planned. You have to change the programming of your conscious and subconscious mind to get results. Changes of the programming of your subconscious mind is done as it was programmed and that is by repetition. It is tedious to constantly repeat something and repeating affirmations does not bring the desired changes. To accomplish the reprogramming of your subconscious mind you should take advantage of hypnosis or even better of subliminal recordings, such as 3A Subliminals. You listen to the subliminal recording once a day. A 3A Subliminal recording you can have run during the day while you work.
The mind (conscious and subconscious mind) is in all cells of your body, while the brain is were it is. See the brain as the hardware and the mind as the software, although brain and mind are much more sophisticated as a computer. When part of the hardware of a PC is damaged, the software does not work anymore. When part of the human brain got damaged, another other part of it takes over and learns the task of the damaged part. A computer has to be replaced after a couple of years. The human mind, when it has been used a lot, is getting better.
When you use your conscious mind intelligently, the brain builds up as muscles when you work out. The brain is an information processing system, containing neurons (nerve cells), which are connected through synapses. The number of synapses grows, and synapses can die. Our mind is consciously and unconsciously fed and influenced. You can control with what you influence your mind by the choice of what you read, watch, hear, feel, smell and taste. But you are also influenced beyond control. This is the case with advertisement, which you hear repeatedly. While you are shopping in a mall, you hear what others say, though it takes repetitions that anything gets deep into your mind and would change your subconscious mind. When you hear an advertisement repetitively, your subconscious mind is influenced. When you go shopping you most probably will buy the advertised item or take into consideration to buy it. But still be careful at any time, because all what is perceived with your senses is saved in your mind and influences you.
You can’t change the entire programming of your subconscious mind. You can only change certain parts of it, but not at once. Make a list of all aspects which you want to change. Give each aspect a priority and then start to change one at a time. It is said that it takes a minimum of 21 days to get used to something new. This is not fully true. It depends how deep the old habit is embedded in your subconscious mind. A change can take several months, until it is lasting, so you would not have a setback. Stick to listening to subliminals targeting one aspect for at least 6 weeks or months, until you the wanted results are remarkable. You will realize a change regarding this one aspect during the first days. But would you stop working to change it, you would quickly get back to your old habit and your old routine. Continue to focus on one change to ensure that the change lasts.
When you plan your life change, you will be able determine what and how you have to change your subconscious mind and get it in line with each aspect of your life change.
The Basics of Planning Your Life Change
Plans and planning is part of management. Here it is about Life Management. The principles are the same, no matter if you manage a company or your life.
You know that companies and organisations have a management. You probably manage your own company. You manage your household and larger households have a management. Did you ever think about the management of your life? Before everything else you should manage your life.
What is Life Management
Management in all business areas and organizational activities are the acts of getting people together to accomplish desired goals and objectives. Management comprises planning, organizing, staffing. leading, or directing, and controlling an organization (a group of one or more people or entities) for the purpose of accomplishing a goal. Resourcing encompasses the deployment of human resources, financial resources, technological resources, and natural resources.
This is the first paragraph of the definition for Management in Wikipedia that I will use to define the term Life Management.
The word business is replaced with: You, including your mind, your body and your life.
Organizational activities: Is all you do to manage all aspects of your life, your mind and body.
Life Management in all areas of your life and organizational activities are the acts of using your abilities, skills and opportunities (including knowledge from school, out of school trainings,, books, magazines, newspapers, online reading material and talks with others), to accomplish the desired changes.
Life Management comprises planning, organizing, using helpful means and tools, leading or directing and controlling all about you and your life for the purpose of accomplishing your goals. Resourcing encompasses the deployment of your born resources (natural resources), all means and tools available on the market (technological resources), the money you have available to make things happen (financial resources) and human resources (teachers, family, friends, employees, suppliers of services).
Because organizations can be viewed as systems, management can also be defined as human action, including design, to facilitate the production of useful outcomes from a system. This view opens the opportunity to manage oneself. – This is the second paragraph of the definition of management on Wikipedia, which I changed regarding Life Management as follows:
The human mind and body is a highly advanced system.
Design: The image a person has of himself, his style, his behavior.
We have many opportunities to facilitate the production of useful outcomes.
Basic functions of management
Management operates through various functions, often classified as planning, organizing, leading/directing, and controlling.
Planning: Deciding what has to happen in the future (today, next week, next month, next year, over the next 5 years, and longer time goals) and generating plans to take action.
Organizing (Implementation) making optimum use of the resources required to enable the successful carrying out of plans.
Staffing: Job analyzing, recruitment, and hiring individuals for appropriate jobs. Hire supporting personnel to whom you delegate certain tasks to make more time for yourself and have more time for more important tasks.
Leading/Directing: Determining what has to be done in a certain situation and getting people to do it.
Controlling/Monitoring: Checking progress against plans and making corrections.
Life Management – The Planning Phase
Start your Life Management with general planning and include all aspects of your life. Do this in written form.
You will then make detailed plans of your life changes.
When you know exactly what you want to change and when you will change a certain aspect, make first the changes in your mind and reprogram your subconscious mind to be in line with you plans. When you first change the programming of your subconscious mind regarding one aspect of your life plan, it will be much easier to bring it into your reality.

With all you have written down so far, all you want to change is coming together. Now you make a step by step plan for each aspect of your life.
This is an important plan. For each aspect you will write down all you have to do to make the change that you have determined in the preparation phase. Some of the aspects on your list, you will be able to change tomorrow or very quickly. To change other aspects, you need as long as it takes to get used to the change. As it is not suggested to make too many changes at once, you have to decide with what changes you want to start. Some other aspects you wish to change, you will have to prepare and the change will be accomplished during a longer period of time.
Give every aspect on your list which you wish to change a priority. Having a priority list will make it easier to make a step by step planning. Decide what you want to change first and determine the time span in which you wish to make that change. Also determine what changes you will do next.
Making changes step by step is easy and the chance that you will accomplish them fast is big. Trying to accomplish all your goals at once is very difficult and the change to have setbacks is large.
Write the answer to all the aspects of your life change plan on a large piece of paper or on a Excel file and make 4 segments or write each segment on a different sheet or on 4 different word files.
- Make one segment for changes you can start to realize right
away. Give it the title: Quick Changes

make a habit change. Give it the title: Habit Changes
In a next step decide which of those habits you want to change
first and make a priority list of all habits you want to change.

prepare yourself during a longer time span, as for example:
education and training, losing a lot of weight, building up your
own website or blog and make money with it.
Write down how long it will take to change each aspect on this
list. 3, 6, 9, 12 months or more than a year. Give this segment
the title: Changes that need preparation and more time
- The last segment is for aspects that build up on one or more
other aspects of your plan, as for example your financial
situation or a job change for which you need a certain training.
