A life handbook is your guidebook to live your best life， consisting of everything from your life purpose to your life goals to your action plans right down to your daily tasks. Your life handbook reflects the essence of what it means to be you and what it takes to live your best life. Think of it as your GPS for life.
Back in 2006， I was just about to graduate from university. I had already found my passion to help others to grow， but decided to work in the corporate world first rather than pursue it right away. I promised myself to keep my passion in mind and pursue it when the time was right.
Fast forward a year to 2007， and what had I done about my passion？ Absolutely nothing！ It wasnt that I lost interest， but that I had been so busy working that I had no mental space to think about anything else after work. During weekends， I would either be working or recharging after a busy work week. I also found the same non?progress in my other goals like finding love， losing weight， and spending time with my family. Despite wanting to realize these goals， it was difficult to do so with day?to?day priorities screaming at me every day.
I realized that I needed some kind of tool to remind me of my long?term goals， which helps me live every day to the fullest. Not a to?do list， because this is only a micro?tool that will help with managing daily to?dos but not long?term goals. Not an action plan， as it tends to be goal?based and doesnt give me the whole view on life that I needed.
What I needed was a guidebook for life. This guidebook would assist me in my everyday thinking， decisions， and actions; it would also remind me of my long?term priorities so that I would always be moving toward them and not forget about them.
From there， my life handbook was born.
