  2. Visualize your future, for example, with the help of photos and symbols. Stick the photo into your diary and put the symbol on your desk or hang it on the wall. Coin a slogan to maintain the spirit when moving towards quality life.
  3. Form your “SMART” goals to achieve what you wish and implement your mission. Evaluate you internal and external resources. Think of your moral principles and human values. Also, remember about your post life goals that reflect what we leave behind, how you stand before the eternity and what people remember about you. Post life goals give us strength and remind us of the meaning of life in difficult situations.
  4. Identify the main purpose of your life, define the parameters to achieve the main objective, produce decomposition of indicators of achievement of goals for each area of life quality; set targets for each indicator and each space for the specific period of time: a year, a quarter, a month, a week, a day etc.

We work and learn to improve the world around us.
  9. Plan the current year; define the objectives of a given year on the basis of the main purpose of your life on the relevant pages of “The Diary of High Quality Life”.

Plan the current quarter and define the goals considering the purposes of the year.

Plan each week including weekends, public holidays and vacation. Plan and alternate work and leisure. Set goals for a week considering the purposes of a particular month.

Plan each day. Define the main target of the day taking into account the tasks and objectives of the year, the quarter, the month and the week.

  1. Try to do what was planned for a particular day and remember to have rest. Reward yourself with something for a productive day.
  2. Assess the year, quarter, month, week and day you lived through by a five-point scale of satisfaction in view of the important goals set for these period. Calculate the index of satisfaction per period; reveal the changing trends of your level of satisfaction monthly and yearly. Evaluate the importance of each day and the degree of your satisfaction with the help of “Results of the day” scale on each page. Plan next year avoiding the mistakes of the previous one. Refresh your vision, life mission, the direction you follow towards your desired future and realization of your mission constantly. Set “SMART” goals, act, and reach the new quality and the new level of life. Implement marketing management for your life quality. The following algorithm is cyclic and presents the Deming wheel of improvements.

The PDCA – cycle is a concept of constant improvement: Plan-Do-Check-Act. It is a widespread method of continuous quality improvement. Its second name is the Deming wheel (or the Deming – Shewkhart cycle) and appeared thanks to graphic interpretation of its stages. Deming advocated the use of this cycle as the main means for continuous improvement of the quality.

Remember the Pareto law, act to achieve your goals, have rest, gather strength, do not waste time sitting in front of the TV or in social nets. The Pareto law, or the Pareto principle, or the 20/80 principle is a rule of thumb named after the economist and sociologist Vilfredo Pareto and says: “20 per cent of efforts provide 80 per cent of the result, while the remaining 80 per cent give 20 per cent of the results”

  1. Improve everything you do, avoid the unwanted events and situations, and prevent their occurrence when planning your life (p. 472 NOTES). Try to keep the situation under control in any situation, act and try to keep up your spirits. Eliminate the consequences of the unwanted events or minimize them, eliminate the causes of their origin primarily in yourself.

This is your year of high quality life that starts the day you decide to take your life under control and manage its quality. Create your own project called LIFE. Write down your short-term and long-term goals and plan their achievement on the pages of “The Diary of High Quality Life”. Act and realize your plans every day, approaching the desired results. Achievement of your “SMART” goals is your effectiveness; achievement of your goals with the least expenditure of resources is your life efficiency. Live a full high quality life!
