The Power of a One-Page Plan

The older I get, the simpler things get. And I can put what I know in simpler words.

The simpler the better.
“You must make things simple,” said the great architect I.M. Pei. “You must break down your complex projects into simple steps, and take one at a time.”

Over the years, I devised a very simple system that I have used to rise out of poverty and into pretty remarkable success. The essential part of the system is:
  1. Dare to dream your ideal. Start with the end in mind, and keep it in mind.
  2. Make a list of all the goals necessary to create your ideal life. Rewrite your goals as affirmations, and start affirming you are now creating those goals.
  3. Make a one-page plan for each goal. Keep your plan simple.

Plan your work and work your plan.

Can it really be that simple? Absolutely.

Be well, be in peace,
— Marc Allen
