A 2010 match plan

Have I been away the net or what, lately? :-p

I’ve been spending some time with family during the holidays, and just as I was recovering from all of it, I caught a bad virus tfor the beginning of the new year, bleh! But I’m back, now! ^-^


Since 2010 has come, I’ve been trying to focus on the things I really want to do.

This is going to be a different posts from the ones you’re used to on this blog. It’s going about having a “match plan” and “focusing” on what you really wishes to do in 2010.

So, as I was thinking of this the other day, I had the idea of a circle cut in the way a pie would be.
Each “pie slice” would be an aspect of your life that you want to work on.

So I came with this very simple idea :

It’s a printer-friendly 2010 match plan for you to download.
There’s not much details in it for you to personalize it with images, drawings, stamps, colors… whatever suits your fancy. 🙂

I find it more appealing, visually, than the general “to-do” list.
And since this is a very simple circle, if you don’t have access to a printer, you could just draw it by hand.

Here are some ideas to get you started:

  • Leisure times & sports:
    Have you been wanting to learn the hula hoop? Or is there a craft skill you still need to learn? Any classes or activities you wish to follow can find a  place here.
  • Travels:
    It doesn’t has to be Cuba or Italy, you may just wish to visit a friend who’s far from you or some family. It may be some simple vacations or a place that you always wanted to see, but never took the time to do so.
  • Work & Finances:
    You may wonder why I’ve put theses there. Reality is that, our job, takes the most of the time in our life. So it’s important to give it a little place in our future plan. Do you like your job? If so, that’s great! But if not, you may want to think about this.
    As for the finances part, the more you plan on how you’ll use your money, the better you’ll get at reaching your goal. You may start the year by setting yourself a *gasp* budjet or start by saving some money.
  • Friends & Family:
    Is there any friends you’d like to spend more time with? Facebook is not an option here. We’re talking about real quality time with friends and/or family. Perhaps you’d like to get new friends or retrieve old ones?
  • Spirituality:
    I realize that not everyone feels comfortable with this section. And it’s up to you to know if you want to go there or not. Spirituality may be just doing some meditation ,taking a walk or reading about it. Writes down what feels fine with you.
  • Creative projects:
    I saved the best for the last didn’t I? 😉 This is the part where you write the creative projects you’d like to do. Remember: Only for this year! Focus on some things you -really- want to do and write them down.


I realize that not everyone has “plans” and that it can be too scary or untouchable for some.
But I believe by setting ourselves small step-by-step goals and that we focus on them, there’s no way we can’t reach them.

Now, let’s see if I follow MY advices for 2010. :-p

    Actually, Fannie, I like this idea of a circle – “wheel of life” for recording the things you want to be sure to include in the coming year! So easy to cut it out and place it on a wall or note board or in a Day Runner notebook or even as wall paper on the computer! Always present always visible and a constant reminder of your goals. WAY, WAY better than a To Do List! Love it!
    Thank you!

    I’m glad you like it, Pam! Yay! 😀

    It -does- looks exactly like a wheel of life, I just didn’t realize it! How neat! Thanks for bringing this to my attention.

    Somehow, it reminds me a lot of math class and all thoses additions in 1/4 we had to do! ^-^
