Sunday Write It

Sunday Write It

An end-of-the-year activity I often do with my students is the Ten-Year Plan. I ask them to write down where they would like to be and what they would like to be doing in ten years. Then, I collect the papers and file them away.

Students have contacted me years later to ask if I still have their papers. I do have them, and I’m working toward digitizing all of them. When I get a request, I send a copy to that student, unless they want the original. It is interesting for both of us to see how their lives evolved. Sometimes they are doing exactly what they laid out years before, but most of the time their path has been very different, and often surprising.

But you can do this right now, with a ten-year plan, or a five-year, a one-year, or whatever. Write down what you want in the future and file the paper away where you can find it later. It will motivate you to you put your plans on paper, and this is a technique many people use.

Try it!

Motivational Secret #108:  
Write your ten-year plan.”

You can't rewind the past
The only way to learn the secret
...is to press play.”
