Holistic Life Plan (HLP) is a multidimensional overview of one’s life, including a strategic 5 year plan, a mid term 3 year plan and a tactical one year plan. The purpose of HLP is to help the individual plan for his or her life, considering the longer term impact of what he or she does on a daily basis and the inter-dependencies of one area of life on other areas.
The tool consists of 3 tables with timelines at the top and holistic dimensions listed on the first left column. It’s up to each individual to choose what dimensions will go into the Plan, but typically 6-8 dimensions from the list below can be selected:
- Learning and education
- Family life
- Friends and social life
- Health and well being
- Financial status
- Interests and hobbies
- Location and travels
After populating the first column, the timelines are populated in the following manner:
- In 5 year plan, each column represents a year.
- In 3 year plan, each column represents a quarter.
- In 1 year plan, each column represents a month.
