Last week, I wrote the reasons to have a 5-Year Plan. If you already have completed your five year life plan, I encourage to craft a 50-Year Plan too! Expand your time horizon for half a century and plan out all you would like to be, do, have, learn, see, and experience.
What if you are already 80 years old? Then consider what legacies you would like to leave behind and how could you help/influence/impact your family, friends, community, or the world-at-large in fifty years from beyond the grave.
Of course, this plan is subject to change as the world changes; nevertheless, course corrections are easiest when you are already have your bearings and are heading in a single direction.
A rough outline can be completed within a few hours. A superior Fifty Year Plan will take several weeks to assemble as it will involve personal brainstorming, quite reflection, critical thinking, and strategic planning.
