BookWatch: This simple strategy will help ensure you get what you want out of your life

We create plans for everything: new businesses, product launches, vacations. Why not our lives?

A few months after Melinda and I married, we pulled out a six-foot-long sheet of butcher paper. I asked her how long she thought she’d live (88 years), and I estimated 78 for myself.

We wrote the current year on the left and the estimated years of our deaths on the right. All of a sudden, we could see our lives visually, and the years and decades we had ahead. We started writing down milestones and then dreams and wishes.

Soon we started sharing pictures on Facebook of our Intentional Life Planning process, and our friends went wild.
