Where would we want to be in the next 10 years?
What do we feel when we speak about what we want to do?
What are we thinking when we discuss about what we plan to do?
Maybe, how many of us even probably think about tomorrow?
When we are inspired to be where we wanted to be, there should be a destination set. A map will only exist where there are locations set. Navigation will lead us to reach as planned.
Points to ponder:
How can we target to achieve it now, when our parents acquire 10 years to reach a goal?
Assuming that saving only 1-3 percent for education is enough, rather than saving 10-30 percent. Assuming that loan facilities will always available.
Viewing the world as a place of no choices, while assumptions are not being validated.
As in business, a business plan plays an important role. Our life need one too. Certain plan and achievement need to be made and carried out accordingly.
What can be done in planning our own work and career?
+ Find out our current resources. This include, our talent, friends, network and any related assets that can be part of the plan.
+ Find out the ‘key activities’ that we can manage doing it and able to do it well.
+ Check, who are the people who will benefit from the above 2? Plan on how to reach to them.
+ Find out people or agency, company or organisation (even individuals) that will be able to be our key partner in our plan.
In other words, map a Business Model Canvas for our own work or career.
