Career/LifeWork planning is all about researching, collecting and prioritizing 1) the hundreds of pieces of unique information about yourself and 2) the thousands of pieces of information about the world of work so you can narrow them down to define your LifeWork. I will be creating twenty four (24) free Google Templates (GTs) in my Google Template library where you can save that information. Most of these templates are still under construction.
This Roadmap provides a structure and a process to complete each of the GTs. I recommend that you do them in the order listed. The Roadmap is divided into three (3) Phases.
- In Phase 1 you will use eight (8) GTs to (re)searching your LifeWork and record information about yourself like your values, interests, and skills, and start summarizing this (and other information) in your A: My One Page LifeWork Profile (MV) (GT) (PH) (eP) (RM) and your B1: My LifeWork Details (MV) (GT) (PH) (eP) (RM).
- In Phase 2 you will use eight (8) GTs to (re)define your LifeWork and continue summarizing that information in documents A and B1 above.
- In Phase 3 you will use eight (8) GTs to (re)find your LifeWork (career decsion making).
The most important document you will create and maintain throughout your work life is your A: My One Page LifeWork Profile (MV) (GT) (PH) (eP) (RM). It is a summary of all of the 24 GTs you create adn maintain.
