Are You Missing Anything in Life?: Try a Life Zones List, the Ultimate Planning List

I am a list addict. I write lists for everything:

  • yearly planning lists
  • weekly priorities
  • my team’s priorities/client needs this week
  • groceries
  • freezer contents
  • how to launch a company successfully
  • weekend tasks
  • meal plans
  • people I want to connect with professionally
  • and so on … .


So it is no surprise that part of my retreat process includes a list. Every retreat I go on, I review my “Life Zones” list to make sure that I am not missing anything.

ThinkResults Life Zones

Here is a very simple exercise you can do any time you feel the need for a life check in, such as:

  • The new year is a natural time for this work. This is a big reason why the 2014 Breakthroughs Retreat is scheduled for January.
  • The beginning of spring always seems like a good time to do some internal housecleaning as well.
  • On your birthday, another natural time of reflection.
  • In September, the beginning of the new school year (whether you are in school or not, it’s a time of new beginnings).
  • The beginning of each new quarter is fitting.
  • Any time there is a major change or shift in your life.


For each of the life zones, write down your answers to three simple questions:

  1. Where am I now?
  2. Where do I want to be?
  3. By when?

Take 30 minutes to write out your answers to each of these simple questions for each life zone and you will quickly have your 2014 plan created. If not, a full life plan!
