Training for the mentee

First they work with «Where are you»? with strength, weaknesses and values. And then they go into «Where do you want to go»? and here they will dream and work with SMART-goals.

And in the end «What do you need to get there»?

The participants are ready for their first training in Mentor-LELO mentoring program in Stavanger for refugee. We start with Lifeplanning which would be their fundament and they will do a personal travel within themselves.

A review of your LifePlan for 2013

In January this year I wrote an article about making a life plan and also some personal tips. We are a little over halfway in to 2013, the summer is almost over  and time to review this years plan. Which goals have you reached and which goals are you still working on…

Take some time to reflect, before the last month of 2013.

How do I plan for 2013

Going from 2012 to 2013 got me to think about Confucius when he talked to his student about planning.

The student: Where do you think I should go?

Confucius:It depends on where you wanna go

The student: It doesn´t matter that much

Confucius: Then it doesn´t matter where you go

It´s a good story about planning and I am sitting and planning my 2013, wanna know where I want to go. First of all I think it is important to know where you come from and what you have in your baggage. Therefor i use «The wheel of life».

This one I found here


This is my platform, this is where I come from. I find myself between 1 and 10, and even if it´s only 3, that is my baggage. I have to start from there…

I then start by brainstorming the 8 dimensions of my life that is important for me. When you do the same you can put in and take out which dimensions that are important for you.

My dimensions are: Business/Career – Finances – Health – Family and friends – Romance/My marriage – Personal growth – Fun and recreation – Physical Environment.

I will then have identified all the dimensions and I will find areas that need attention, meaning below 7. I will then find actions needed to work on regaining balance and there is where most of my goals for 2013 are.

F.ex. if I don´t spend enough time with my friends one of my goals for this year would be to find more time to meet my friends. And on Business/Career I put in my two big projects for 2013. Then I take f.ex. one of the projects and set up goals on short and long terms.


This is one way to do it, earlier I wrote about a Life Plan, thats also a very good way to do it. I guess the most important here is that you actually do it, planning there is…
