Are you feeling a little lost in life? You’re not alone. The last few months have been incredibly tough for everyone. As the COVID-19 pandemic swept across the globe, it completely transformed life as we know it, leaving many of us feeling overwhelmed with the entire situation. In fact, 55% of people reported seeing a rise in stress as the pandemic continued.
However, with vaccinations rolling out, 2021 is looking a lot brighter. As the New Year dawns, it is the perfect time for a fresh start and to start implementing those changes to help you achieve your goals. No matter whether it’s furthering your career, improving your financial situation, or boosting your health, learning how to plan with a purpose is an essential part of your success.
Why have a plan?
Successful work/life integration requires dedication, hard work, and sacrifice – but before that, planning with a purpose is crucial in helping you to map out your strategy. The right plan should be the foundation of any goal, giving you a clear path to achieving the perfect balance.
We all struggle with motivation and work/life integration at times and ask any working parent, and they will tell you how challenging it can be to find the time and energy to progress your goals. A clear plan can help you to reduce procrastination and keep you striving towards success. It will also help to provide a level of accountability, preventing you from making excuses for slacking off!
How to plan with a purpose
Developing the right plan for work/life integration can be a confusing and time-consuming process, which can put a lot of working parents off. However, while it might seem tough, we have put together our top tips to get you started.
1) Know your end goal
It might seem a little odd to start at the end, but the key to planning with a purpose is to know exactly what you are working towards. When you know what you want to achieve and by when, you will be able to develop a truly attainable plan.
2) Set yourself boundaries
Juggling your work and home life has always been a challenge, but with many of us now working from home, the lines between the two have become increasingly more blurred. When you are developing a plan, make sure you set yourself boundaries, ensuring you know where work and home life ends.
3) Be realistic
We might all dream of being millionaires, but for most of us, that’s not going to happen. When creating a plan, it is important you are realistic with your goals and the time frame you want to complete them in. Not only will it keep you motivated, but it can also improve your well-being as you see yourself moving closer to success.
