Introducing "The S.T.A.N. Plan"

What Is The S.T.A.N. Plan?
What is the S.T.A.N. Plan?

So, here we are. It's a little over a month before I 'officially' retire. I've had a lot of experiences. I've accomplished a lot. I've also lost my fair share. Honestly, my losses were caused by Lack of Focus. My successes were a result of good focus.  Like many, I am obsessive compulsive with attention deficit tendencies. It's been a struggle overcoming this. I had to devise methods to help me. The S.T.A.N. Plan is one of them. It's also where everything starts

The S.T.A.N. Plan

Basically, I took my name, Stan to create a process. Before I start a project, I apply the S.T.A.N. Plan to it. That means, it must be:

  • Simple - easy to understand
  • Trackable - can I measure it's results.
  • Achievable - is it something I can actually DO?
  • Necessary - what are the rewards, or consequences of the project. 
That's the start. All answers to the above must be "Yes". If they are, I feel like it has a shot at success. My next step is "The D Planner". I'll explain that in another post. Why? Because I'm following my "Area 51" method. I'll explain that in another post as well.
