Purpose of this exercise:
What are you looking to get out of life? If you were on your death bed looking back at a perfect life, what would that be for you?
To reach the highest possible level of performance in all pillars (financial, social, family, physical, intellectual) while maintaining balance, living a high quality of life, and leaving the world a better place.
BHAG (25 years)
What is your “Big Hairy Audacious Goal” that you dream of accomplishing one day? Doesn’t have to be attainable, just slightly possible… dream big!
To have a net worth in excess of $100M+, be in top physical shape, balanced, happily married with 2+ healthy children, and working on world changing environmental projects / philanthropy.
What metrics / numbers can you track to measure your success? These will change dramatically from person to person depending on what is important to you. Note these examples will more than likely not apply to you… for me they make sense as I’m working hard on improving personal accountability, reducing financial stress, maintaining life balance, improving net worth, and having more life autonomy (for travel etc.). What important numbers should YOU be tracking?
- Financial Stress: Score from 1 to 10 on how stressed out I am about money.
- Life Balance Score: How evenly balanced am I within the 5 pillars (financial, social, family, physical, intellectual)
- Accountability Score: How well am I performing with my personal performance plan ** goals?
- Net Worth: Total personal net worth
- Autonomy: What % of my time can I do what I want, when I want, from where I want?
