Simple ways to make money from the comfort of your own car

10 years may seem like a really long time, although it can pass so quickly before your eyes. It can be hard to imagine what your life will be like in 10 years time. However, having a 10 year plan can help you to make all the decisions you need to make today to get you to where you want to be in 10 years time.

 

How do I get started?

Your 10 year plan doesn’t need to be as long as your arm, it just needs to be what you want your life to look like in the future and what you want to achieve.

Here are some definitions to help you:

Vision – the ability to think about or plan your future with imagination or widsom

Purpose – a person’s sense of determination

Goals – the object of a person’s ambition or effort, an aim or desired result

 

Determine your priorities

Firstly, work out what you would like to have achieved 10 years from now. You can break this down into 5 year goals or even yearly goals.

Ask yourself:

What do I want to accomplish in life?

What kind of person do I want to be?

What is most important to me in life?

How would I like to be remembered?

 

You can assess what you want to achieve in the following areas:

 

  • Finances
  • Relationships
  • Self-development
  • Health
  • Friendships
  • Career
  • Generosity 

 

Think about financial goals – how can you use the next 10 years of your life to move towards financial security?

  • Starting a pension
  • Saving more money
  • Asking for a promotion
Think about fun goals – where would you like to travel or what activities would you like to accomplish?
 
  • Skydiving
  • Travel the world
Think about family goals – would you like to have a family or if you’ve already started your family what are your goals for them?

  • Saving money for your child’s education
  • Moving to a larger home
  • Having a child

 

Use SMART goals

SMART is an acronym that you can use to create your goals. This means:

Specific

Measureable

Achievable

Relevant

Time Bound

A goal is your ultimate destination. Objectives are the paths you need to take to arrive at that goal. Goal setting promotes a long-term vision and short-term motive.

Creating a vision board can help to stay on track with your 10 year plan. You can use a frame or noticeboard and stick on pictures that identify your objectives. Place this board where you can see it every day so that you are reminded of your main goal and what you need to do to get there.

 

I hope this post sends you on your way to building and creating your own 10 year plan! As always, let me know your 10 year goals by tweeting me @BritOnABudget1
