The Doctor Is In – What is a Strategic Life Plan?

At its most basic level, your Strategic Life Plan™ contains the following Strategic Elements:

  1. Your Vision Statement
  2. Your YOUnique Personal Impact Statement
  3. YOUnique Excellence Pillars (YEPs)
  4. Your Core Values Statement
  5. Your Long-Term Objectives

But what does this really mean?

A Strategic Life Plan is developed to clearly state the impact you want to create with your life, how you want to effectuate that impact, personal values that drive your decisions and the unique set of passions, qualities, interests, priorities, behaviors, skills, talents, and even quirks that are your assets to leverage, and the goals you want to accomplish on your journey to creating that life impact. Essentially, it is a life plan strategy you leverage to set the direction of your life.

Creating and executing on a Strategic Life Plan is your formula for success. It creates a life plan that gets you up and going every single day and assures you are satisfied with the imprint you have left in the world when you reach the twilight of your life.

Leveraging YOUniqueRx transitions you from setting goals to reaching goals.

In the next few YOUniqueRx newsletters, we will focus on each of these elements. In the meantime – to summarize each Element of your Strategic Life Plan:

VISION STATEMENT
This is the Future Vision of You. This Vision Statement frames how YOU want the world to look and how you envision you will partake in creating that Vision in the ensuing years. It is a destination.

YOUNIQUE PERSONAL IMPACT STATEMENT
A shorter timeframe than a Vision statement of 1 – 3 years, Your YOUnique Personal Impact Statement can be considered an “interim” destination to your Vision such as a major milestone on your Success Journey.  Your YOUnique Personal Impact  Statement defines the present purpose of your Life.

VALUE STATEMENTS
Sometimes also called “Core Values”, the Value Statements define and document how you operate in the World. You values direct your decisions. They are also part of our Belief System and thus tightly intertwined with your emotions.

YOUNIQUE EXCELLENCE PILLARS
These are unique characteristics that are special about You. In business strategy planning, they are called Strategic Excellence Positions (SEPs). At YOUniqueRx, we use the term YOUnique Excellence Pillars because these are the unique set of passions, qualities, interests, priorities, behaviors, skills, talents, and even quirks that are your assets to leverage to build your Vision.

LONG-TERM OBJECTIVES
The Long-Term Objectives are the goals you want to reach that usually require more than one year to complete. They frame and quantify YOUR vision creating a springboard for action.
