Personal Strategic Planning

The late Jim Rohn, a leading expert on personal success, famously said “Happiness is not an accident. Nor is it something you wish for. Happiness is something you design.”

I would elaborate on that by saying that most things in life that really matter to us, do not happen by accident. For example, good physical health only happens when you exercise. Good relationships only exist when you spend quality time with people. Wealth is only achieved when you save and invest your money.  For any of these things to occur consistently, you need to plan to do them. The more strategic you are about this planning, the better.

It interests me how strategic planning is a well accepted practice in the organisational environment. There seems little doubt that strategic planning is important to achieving organisational success. Why is it then that such an important and effective process is not applied more consistently to achieving personal success?

The concept of strategic planning is simple – start with the end in mind. That means creating a clear vision of where you want to be in the future. Then align the actions you take today with that end vision. The action you take will help you make progress toward your vision.

I am fortunate to have had the opportunity to develop expertise in both organisational and personal strategic planning. In this blog, I will focus exclusively on personal strategic planning. I look forward to sharing what I have learnt with you and I hope that it empowers you to design a future you love.


Let’s get started

Happy CoupleI believe that everyone in life can achieve a state of wellbeing. That is, a state characterised by health, happiness and prosperity. The reason that most people don’t achieve this, is because it doesn’t happen by accident. It requires a plan, expert advice and discipline.

My mission is to empower people to live their life on purpose. I draw on my skills and experience in the areas of strategic planning, personal finance and structured giving, to guide people in the right direction.

My commitment  can be demonstrated by the lengths that we have gone to at Goodman private wealth advisers, in order to introduce this mission into our business.

This blog will support my mission by bringing together my most important and most topical thoughts for helping you make progress toward your state of wellbeing. I will share my expertise on strategic planning so that you can move forward with purpose. I will focus on the prosperity aspect of wellbeing, because that is what I do best. I will introduce you to the concept of structured giving, because with prosperity comes the opportunity to give back. I will touch on some critical success factors which are necessary for you to keep making progress.

Since my skills and experience are in the aspect of prosperity, I encourage you to seek out other experts who can guide you in the aspects of health and happiness.

I hope this blog makes a difference for you.
