Planning Hints and Tips
|Life has a habit of getting away from you.You start out on January 1 with the best of intentions, but by the time December 31 comes around, nothing seems to have got done.|
Having a written plan is a proven technique to get stuff done. It’s not always as much as you hope, but it’s always more than if you didn’t have a plan at all.

How Alexandria Does It • Project Life Worth Living
I was the happy recipient of a kidney transplant on Melbourne Cup Day (1 November) 2011.
But coming up to my third transplantiversary (2014), I realised I’d let “real” life get in the way of all those wonderful things I said I’d do when the transplant came through. I suspected the precious gift of new life was wasted on me.
I am a philosopher of the Ancient Greek philosophical school of Stoicism. As such, I believe when we thoughtfully develop virtue (or excellence), we learn to control ourselves and our reactions.
We grow the kind of self-control and grit/strength/courage that brings happiness in the face of change and adversity. Or as the ancients called it, flourishing. Which in modern times is usually interpreted as a good life.
My “Life Worth Living” project is an attempt to answer the eternal philosophical question of what makes a good life. In particular a good life for me. It’s working out what my ideal universe looks like, and setting some goals to help get me closer.
