February 17, 2022

I’ve been talking about life planning and creating a life plan these last few weeks… And I’ve received many questions from families on this topic.

The most common question is… “How do I create a life plan with my loved one?”

To help you get started, I made a short explainer video for you, along with a written article.

Written Article/ Transcript.

I’ve been talking about life planning and creating a life plan these last few weeks, and I got many questions from families on this topic. And one of the most common questions is, “How do I create a life plan with my loved one?”

You could start by just writing down a plan, and that’s a good step. But this is where a lot of families get stuck. And I don’t want you to get stuck!

So this is why I’ve created a planning model to help you move forward. I’ve made it based on what I’ve learned and building and implementing life plans with over 500 families.

I will go into this planning model in-depth in the upcoming Life Plan Workshop’. So you can go ahead and scroll down, click below and get your free seat in that workshop. And it’s filling up. So I recommend that you do that now to ensure you get your seat.

BUT I want to share the overview of the Life Planning Model with you now!

So often, we want to jump right into building the plan. BUT this is where families get stuck, so we will not start drafting the plan.

Where I start with families is really around emotional readiness. In other words, the inner work. This is working through your fears and barriers that are coming up. We need to do this because if we don’t, that life plan we create, it’s just going to collect dust on the bookshelf, and you’re going to keep getting your loved one’s way.

The next step is to learn the life possibilities, some ordinary possibilities for your loved one. What is possible?! We get outside of this ‘Special Needs’ thinking to get into the realm of what would be ‘Awesome and Ordinary.’

Next, you need to learn some best practices. Well, how do we get where we want to go? One of the things I’ll talk about in the life plan workshop is a support circle. If you’re unsure what a support circle is, join the workshop, and I’ll tell you more about it—but learning about how we intentionally think about relationships and build a support circle so that others will be there for our loved one? Well, there are best practices, there are strategies, and you can learn them.

So there’s emotional readiness, ordinary possibilities and best practices, and we need to be doing all of that while building the life plan. Because we want the life plan to get traction.

So, that’s my life planning model. I gave you a high overview. I will go into more depth on this life planning model in the Life Plan Workshop. It’s a free two-part workshop that will help you start to build an “Awesome Ordinary” life plan with your loved one.

So scroll down and register for the Life Plan Workshop, and I’ll see you there. Together, let’s keep taking those small steps forward.
