I recently went through an exercise with myself that I thought I would share. I copied my Areas of Focus list in to 3 separate Palm Memo files, one for 20k, one for 30k, and one for 40k. Copying the AOF in to the 30k and 40k gave me a great framework from which to do some creative thinking at the appropriate horizon.
Doing this gave me perspectives on the areas that I had never thought of before. It truly forced me to envision the forward trajectory of each growth area of my life. Perhaps everyone had already done this, but it was a big eye opener for me. What was especially useful was planting a vision, and then breaking it down further to 1-2 year goals and also taking ideas from both horizons and dropping them down to my Projects and Action lists.
Up until this point my Altitudes had just random thoughts on them. Structuring them this way really helped pinpoint my Vertical Focus.
Has anyone done similar exercises/suggestions that they would like to share?
