I work for myself. I'm an artist. Thus, I set my schedule. If you are an entrepreneur, you can call yourself an artist, too. After asking a question about planning on this forum, I was confused for a few days. But, innovative ideas occurred to me while I was visualizing for 10 minutes with my eyes closed after 20-minute meditation. Here's how I decided to organize my planning system as a following simple tree structure. Life purpose Long term vision which follows from life purpose Long term plan to achieve my long-term vision It has set amounts with set dates. It is specific. I have long term plans for the next year, the next 3 years, the next 5 years, and the next 10 years. For the current year, I make yearly goals which are more specific than my long term plan. Projects come from responsibilities and yearly goals and various other sources. I can make 1-week projects, 1-month projects, 6-week projects, and quarterly projects when and as they are needed. Thus, projects list subsumes weekly plans, monthly plans, 6-week plans, and quarterly plans. Weekly, monthly, 6-week, and quarterly plans are more rigid than projects because projects don't have a rigid hierarchical structure and don't have pre-defined cycles. Action lists come from responsibilities, projects, and various other sources. Every day, I write down 3 major things I want to accomplish today. So, the change from my previous planning system is that projects list subsumes any goals smaller than yearly goals and there are no detailed daily goals that prescribe my entire day. Now, my planning system looks a lot like GTD system.
