TFRL is an ongoing series about the journey to The Fully Realized Life, and The Planning Phase, the third in a three-part conversation about the role of Visioning, Planning and Doing in living a fully realized life.
Last month, we jumped off our three-part conversation on Visioning, Planning and Doing with a post on The Doing Phase, when you roll up your sleeves and get the job done. We continued the conversation earlier this month with The Visioning Phase. Today, we conclude the conversation with some tips for turning your vision into a plan.
Most of us are pretty good doers. At any given moment, we may or may not be doing the right thing, but we’re good at staying in motion. Trouble is, without a clear vision and a workable plan, all the doing in the world won’t lead us to the life we really want. To get to that life, we need to proceed with greater intentionality.

TFRL is an ongoing series about the journey to The Fully Realized Life, and The Visioning Phase, the second in a three-part conversation about the role of Visioning, Planning and Doing in living a fully realized life.
A few weeks back, we sat around the Revel In It fire to talked about The Doing Phase — a.k.a. those times in life when you just have to roll up your sleeves and do the hard, practical work of realizing your goals and dreams. It’s like my father used to say, you can pray, but you still have to work like hell.
Back then, we argued that it’s all about what you do, but we also acknowledged that, before you do, it helps to have a vision and a plan Doing without first visioning and planning is the dry-land equivalent of setting sail with no destination, and no understanding of the sea. You’ll end up somewhere, but it’s anybody’s guess as to where. And since the open sea can be a treacherous and unpredictable place, and so too life, we recommend you navigate it by knowing what you’re doing and why. The why is your vision. The what is your plan.
