The LifePlan Notebook is a notebook in which you can create the hypothetical life you love - and then work toward turning it into reality. It will likely have a master planning document that you can fill in - see Creating Your Life Plan The first order of priority is to shed the limitations that our minds tend to make up, and then construct life as you'd love it if you could have anything you want - without fear, without judgments about yourself, without concern about being polite to others, with only what you want being the governing factor. See Creating Your Life Plan.

CREATING YOUR LIFE PLAN
Creating your life plan will be the most significant thing you do in your life, as it creates the basis for the rest of your life!!!!
Without it, your life is more random and definitely "less-considered", meaning you will do things in your life that you wouldn't do if you more wisely and purposely considered them. Without doing this, you're more likely to lean your ladder(s) against the wrong wall(s), climbing them only to discover that wasn't what you would really want in the first place.
Yes, it does take some thought and some time, but it is THE most valuable time you will ever spend.
The initial plan is best done with some concentrated, set aside time, such as a 2-3 day "retreat", but it can also be done in chunks over a more extended time. In any event, once you set up the initial plan, you will spend some time adding to or revising the plan - and, again, this will be incredibly valuable time for you. If you want to grab a form or get an explanation go to the Detailed Contents/Links For The Planning Section. Read: Creating Your Life Plan (With more information than this brief intro). Note that to set up a good plan, you should be aware of the 80-20 approach to life (see Live8020 site) and the perspective provided by First Things First, by Stephen Covey (or at least scan it).
