You’re 20-Days Away from the Perfect Life Plan


There are times in your life when you need to refocus, reenergize and recharge. Times when things may be going along just fine but you start to feel ‘the itch’ or yearning for something different.

When this happens, it’s helpful to follow a process that will help you plan and prioritize effectively. To guide you in the right direction to figure out where you want to be 1 year, 5 years and 10 years from now. More importantly, when that time arrives, you want to find yourself in the exact place you were hoping for.

That can be difficult to do on your own. It’s easier when you have an effective life planning process to guide you. This challenge is a great starting point for that.

Furthermore, each time you bring your life back into focus, it may be a few years before refocusing is needed again but for most people it’s needed on a more regular basis.

That’s just a part of the journey. The earlier in life you accept that, the easier it will be to move gracefully through the ebbs and flows of the human experience.

This is especially true if you thrive on personal development to continue growing into the best version of yourself.

I structured the life planning challenge to help you refocus, recharge, dream, examine, reflect, plan, prioritize, and start taking action from where you are today. Not from where you were yesterday. Yesterday is gone. Today is your starting point. Today provides the next opportunity to be the best version of yourself.

Are you up for the challenge? I hope so. Your life is worth it. You’re worth it.

I’ve been collecting anonymous feedback from the challengers that have gone before you and they are loving it. When asked what part of the challenge was the most helpful, here are some of their comments:

“Thinking through the emotional aspects of planning.”

“How each area had specific actions to do. It helped me feel I could actually do the challenge.”

“Responsibility, Mindset, Fears & Barriers, Relationships. These were the days that I felt most challenged, and are usually left out of goal-setting.” 

“The step-by-step guided process helped to clarify my thoughts.

“It forced me to sit down and think…about ME and what I want”

“Introspection. The fact that you have to go back in order to move forward.”


I’m not a huge fan of waiting until the beginning of the year to set goals, reflect on life and set resolutions, although, if it’s that time of year, then there’s no better time like the present.

As I mentioned above, goal setting, prioritizing, reflecting, and refocusing may need to be done on a more regular basis when we want to make effective changes in our lives. This may be once a year, twice a year or perhaps even more. We’re all different so you need to figure out what works best for you.

Therefore, unlike other Challenges, this one has no start and stop dates. The challenge is available to you any time you need it. If completing the challenge once a year starting in January is what works best for you, great. But if completing the challenge now and then again in 6-months is what you need most, it’s here for you now and will be then as well.


The good news is the prompts you’ll receive won’t take you more than 10-15 minutes a day to complete. Of course, you can spend more time but you don’t have to. That would be a total of 3 – 5 hours dedicated to recharging your life.

If you prioritize your time, you’ll be surprised how you can find 3-5 hours to do something as important as life planning. Just think about something you can do without or shift each day for 10-15 minutes (i.e. watching Netflix, watching the news, browsing through social media, socializing with co-workers over lunch, etc.) and the time will be there.

      All the best,

      • Thanks for visiting Karen and for the kind comments. I’m so excited for everyone who works through the entire challenge. I think they will be pleasantly surprised by the outcome.

    • This is what I am planning to do for December before I come across your post. So, along with re-reading another book I love with similar theme, I will be following your challenge prompts. It’s just this perfect timing in my life. 🙂

      • Isn’t it amazing when we set the intention for something how things come across our path that wouldn’t have otherwise. LOVE IT! Have fun with the challenge. Looking forward to hearing if/how it helps. Best, Karen
