As I was setting up a new project I asked someone to design the shared space for the team to share documents. He came back with this we will just create a shell of space and allow them to build it. I was shocked and said, no you need to layout the design and process for how the site will start and how they will use the site. That is when I got back the idea of I have no idea what they are doing, so he could not create a design or the process.
I think most of us do the same thing with life. We jump into a career based on our skills, we jump into relationships, we even have a family, than wonder what happened. We jumped into that basic shell of space with no design or process.
Don’t go crazy about planning. I am just saying without a vision and plan you will get what you planned and get disappointed. Creating a vision and process can take just a few moments. Just ask around and people will help you with the idea.
Years ago I was planning to build a lower deck. I had the idea than I put it on paper. I wasn’t sure it was designed right, so I asked a few people. They told me how to make it stronger and a few tricks for building the deck. I had my vision, plan and process created in a couple hours. Most of the time was going to the store to ask for design help.
You can do the same with your vision. Take some time and create a vision of the life you are creating. Just one piece at a time, than create a plan and process. The process is just how it will work for you and how you will get there. Don’t worry too much about being perfect you will adjust the process as you start moving in the direction of your plan.
Much joy and love to you and yours
