After being asked more times than I can count, today I'm sharing my Full Weekly Planning Process I've done religiously for the past 5 years. This article is meant to be a reference piece. I've also included a free Weekly Planning Worksheet download at the bottom, to make sure this stuff is super easy for you to do. Updated 2017:  We've created the wildly popular Should I Quit Test.  Be careful taking it though, your life my change real quick!  And in your honor, we've put together life-transforming courses that we are extremely proud of. For now let's get into the fun...

"I don't have enough time."

Think about that statement for a second. How often do you say it?  How many times a week or even each day? There is no bigger killer of dreams than those five words.  But have you ever noticed that the busiest and most accomplished people never seem to say them?

“I have never let my schooling interfere with my education.” —Mark Twain

Note: This post is intentionally long. It's meant to be our compass for learning the skills that matter in the world and throwing theory out the window. Read it. Save it. Bookmark it. Come back to it. Print it and post it on your wall for you and the world to see and experience. At the end of this post I've even provided two free PDF downloads to further guide you towards learning what matters (one is a list of over 30 of the best online resources for creating your own passion-filled curriculum). (Update:  As a result of subscriber demand, we created the wildly popular Should I Quit Test.  Be careful taking it though, your life my change real quick!  We've also put together life-transforming courses that we are extremely proud of.  They have helped thousands make the difficult transition of quitting their job, being laid off or fired. Finding work you love can make life outstanding and these products help you do that if you put them to use.  Check out our 21 Days to Discover Your Passion and Live Off Your Passion if you are not happy with your career or not making a living off your passion.  Both are risk-free and come with a money back guarantee, that's how confidant we are in our courses.) *****

Enter the Unofficial Self-Guided Education Manifesto...

Last week's article on The Birth of Self-Guided Education caught like wildfire. This topic has always been a passion of mine but I had no idea how much it would resonate with the rest of the Live Your Legend community. Over 4,500 of you read it, shared it or commented on it in a matter of a few days. When that happens, I know a topic deserves some respect. Many of last week's comments blew my mind. As it turns out (and this should not surprise me much), many of you have already made amazing progress constructing your own experiences and success stories with Self-Guided Education. I was inspired to say the least. My realization was simple:

"No one ever got anywhere by themselves. Find your support and keep them close."

Who inspires you? Who pushes you to places you couldn't get on your own? It's time to start spending more time around them... Live Your Legend is dedicated to helping you find the work you love. To discover passion and spend your time doing what matters. To putting a dent in the world that only you are capable of making. This comes down to a simple formula:

Learn who you are + get inspired by others + take action = Live Your Legend

If I'm not spending my time in one of those categories, I'm not living. I surround myself with passionate people everyday. They push my limits. They inspire me. They teach me the impossible is possible. We are not meant to go at it alone. I get to live my legend, work on passion and wake up excited because of what I've learned from those who've taken the world by the horns and done something with who they are. Recently I asked a handful of kick-ass entrepreneurs living their dreams (aka: Living Legends), one question:

What's one defining life experience or belief that's allowed you to find your passion and live on purpose? 

The responses blew my mind - I hope they'll do the same for you. I'm grateful to say the below are all people I've met, spent time around or been in touch with in one way or another along the journey. Many of them have become good friends. Whether they know it or not, they've shed light on a path I could not have walked alone. They have built businesses and sold them, written bestsellers, lived and worked all over the world and most importantly helped people in a way only they could. And they did it all on their terms. They've created lives of meaning that, however big or small, are changing the world. And the best part, we are all capable of what they've done. You just have to want it badly enough. Doing work that matters is scary sh*t. One few decide to tackle. You are here because you think differently. We all do. We all have moments that change us. We all have times where fear and uncertainty stare us in the face. It's what we do at those moments that defines us. I have not gotten here alone nor will I go any further without the right people in my corner.

From the shoulders of giants, enter the Living Legends...
