It is very helpful to utilize in this process the following questions: What, Why, How, When, Where, Who.

The steps of making a change or achieving a goal

Investigation and evaluation of the present situation

• Analysis, investigation, understanding of the current situation. Investigation of the causes. What are the causes of our present state? (Psychological y external as well).

Goal setting

• Precise goal setting. What exactly do we want to change or achieve and for what purpose? It is also of great importance to evaluate and be aware of how important is this change or goal for us. How much is this related to our purpose of life and our values?

Investigating or exploring available capabilities, capacities, etc.

• In this step we investigate which are the resources, capabilities we already have or possess but also our weaknesses and what we lack.

Investigating possible options, solutions, methods, tools, strategy, plan, etc ..

• We explore and reflect on options or alternatives, means, methods and modes of action. A very important method is to sit quietly and meditate in order to find useful, effective ideas and solutions. We sit relaxed quietly letting the creative part of the mind to find any idea or possible solution. As the ideas arise into our mind, we do not judge or reject any of them. We just record all of them, even the most seemingly improbable ones. Their evaluation will be done in the next step.

• We also reflect for any possible help we can have or ask for.

Evaluation of ideas, solutions, methods, tools, etc.

• We evaluate all ideas and possible actions, methods, means and strategies.

• We organize and decide an action plan. We choose: means, methods, strategy, actions and make a schedule.


• Implementation, monitoring and evaluation of the actions, means, methods, strategy.
