Most of us have goals. We're working on near-term changes in our lives, and we have a pretty good idea of what we need to do to get there. Most of us also have dreams: to visit the next destination on our bucket list, change careers, make a creative project happen, build something...
The gap between our dreams and our goals can often seem vast. Our goals seem do-able, down-to-earth, and we know how to make them happen. Our dreams might seem more intangible, out of reach, a "someday" idea rather than something that can happen today or tomorrow.
This is where strategic planning comes in. We take the dream, the vision we have for an ideal future, and we begin to identify the steps needed in order to get there. What do we need to do in three years, five years, ten years, to bring our dreams to life?

"The things that get in the way of making our hopes and dreams into plans and our plans into reality are often internal - fear of failure, rejection or humiliation, feelings of anxiety or dread, shame, doubt, confusion. We avoid these feelings without checking whether our fears are likely to occur, or considering how we might handle such circumstances. In truth, most of the time, the internal process is vastly more challenging than the external obstacles."

In this class you'll create a personal strategic plan. You'll explore your dreams and goals, and identify priorities, practices, and timelines. You'll work with your own creative process, sometimes reducing structure in order to make the steps feel right. You'll look further into the future, and identify what you can do today to get yourself closer to the life of your dreams.
You'll come away with a plan that balances compassion and action, pragmatism and aliveness. You'll learn more about yourself and what you want -- you'll identify both your blindspots, and your strengths. And you'll know more about planning, why it's a good idea, and how often you need to revisit your plans in order to stay on track.
Course materials are delivered weekly in our interactive online classroom. The group learning version of the course features five bi-weekly phone calls.
The Art of Planning will help you get where you want to go quickly, easily and with confidence. I hope you'll join us!
