Once you have repeated the meditation described in Step 1 enough times to feel that you really have connected with it, develop your own “business plan.”   I did my first major one in 2008 and partially re-did it in 2010.  Just assume that your life is a “business” and that there are certain short and long-term goals you would like to achieve.  As with any business start-up the chance of success is low without a written plan.  The more specific the plan the better.  Here is the template I have used to start and it eventually becomes quite detailed.  I am also realizing that I need to do an additional one with my wife.
