Dear, (Insert your name here)
Now is the time to take control of your life’s direction. Taking the time to put together a plan will make it more likely that you will have a favorable outcome. Without a plan and goals, you lack direction. What do you want to achieve? What motivates you? What is important and valued in your life? Don’t just say what you want to do. Write down what you want to do and don’t stop there. Write down why it is important. Take these steps starting first with evaluation. Then, set performance goals. Last, Strategy. All goals should be considered SMART Goals: Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant, and set a Time Limit. Use clear writing with the word will. Use will as a definite, “I will…” Positively frame your writing i.e. (I will keep my body healthy and happy instead of I will not get sick.) Follow the steps as many times as you need and we will be on our way to success because I am going along for the ride. I am here as your guide.
