Develop your 3-6-9-12 Month Plan – putting attention to your intention

Once you have your statements of intent/strategic priorities drafted you are in a position to develop your plan. You can either do this now or come back to it later once you’ve developed your personal strategy map in all the pillars.

The enabler should be included in the commitment and actions where relevant.


Where do you want to get to in the next year on this priority? Describe the key outcomes and impact in the present tense. Ideally this should align with your vision statement.

For example, if your strategic priority (statement of intent) is to invest in your relationship with your spouse/partner by being more present, your commitment might be that within a year you have enjoyed some shared adventures/experiences together that are on your bucket list and this is rekindling the love and excitement in your relationship.


Action Plan

Return to your 3-6-9-12 Month Plan and identify what you will do to achieve your commitments in Relationships. These may be a mixture of:

  • Action commitments
  • Ideas and actions to experiment with and trial
  • New behaviours to engage in
  • Habits to establish
  • Targets to achieve
  • Milestones of a significant project

Following on from the previous example, you might make a commitment to agree on and plan the activities and habits to carve out time together in the first three months, starting with a weekly date night. By 6 months you want to have enjoyed one holiday and two long weekends together, and multiple ways to demonstrate affection; in 9 months you continue to establish these behaviours and have one big adventure together; between 9 and 12 months, you take it to the next level and plan for next year.

Important Note:  For those who are disposed towards perfectionism, you do not need to complete every box for every priority. In fact, choosing which priority you will choose to focus on in any time period is a key part of your strategy – what you will do, and what you will not do. Don’t overload yourself!
