We’re blogging this week about having a Life Plan for 2012.
A Life Plan is simply a short written document expressing what matters most in your life. It serves for a compass on the journey of each day.
My life plan is 12 pages long and covers the ten areas of my life I deem as priorities. Later in the week I’ll make my plan available to interested readers. My purpose in being transparent is that I want every friend I have to grow into the best person they can be. For me, this involves having a plan that keeps me focused and from wandering off the narrow path.
Today, I’d like to share about my Life Statement. This is what I seek to live by daily:
“I seek to be a man God can use and be respected by my sons, my daughter-in-laws, and my six grandchildren.”
That’s it but that’s enough! If I take care of these two: 1. growing into the type of man God wishes me to be and 2. having the respect of those who know me best, everything else is “lagniappe.”
I “borrowed” my Life Statement from Dr. John Avant, pastor of First Baptist-West Monroe, La. He gave me permission to use it and I believe it covers lots of ground in one sentence.
You can borrow it and make it yours or you can craft your own.
I’d love to hear from you.
