Create a 5 Year Self Determination Flowchart
It’s well said that…
We often over estimate what we can achieve in a year and underestimate what we can achieve in 5 years.
In 1 year it’s likely you’ll be pretty similar to what you are right now.
It’s also kind of hard to say what your life will be like in 10 years, some people’s lives radically change for the better or worse in 10 years.
However, in half that time your life will likely still have significant resemblance to what it is now.
I would like you to make optimistic predictions about what your life could look like in 5 years in these areas…
Business or Career
Education and Learning
Family and Friends
Health and Fitness
Relationships & Sex
Travel & Adventure
Where will you live?
What would an average day or week look like?
I want you to strike a balance between your wildest fantasies and a reasonable prediction of how you will be living if you practice your best habits with discipline. Look at your Coach.me dashboard and imagine those habits multiplied by 1800 (5 years).
You guys know that Mindmeister is one of my favorite tools for organizing my thoughts and ideas. So I’ll suggest that you take like 45–60 minutes (Fire up Brain.FM for a 60 minute focus session) to create a flowchart in Mindmeister which is free and takes less than 60 seconds to sign up for.
- I’ll suggest that you link from the individual prediction and lifestyle domains to your habits in Coach.me.
- All of your 5 year predictions should connect at least loosely to your daily habits. If they don’t consider adding them to your Coach.me dashboard.
- Specificity is great. Actually be arbitrarily specific.

Perhaps you can draw some inspiration or ideas from it.
I’d love to take a gander at your Self Determination Flowcharts, perhaps I can provide some useful feedback on your 5 year predictions but I realize that some of them will be VERY personal and you won’t want to share them publicly, that’s totally fine.
The important thing is that you visualize and think specifically about what you want your life to look like in 2022.
This is quiet different than a vision board, which is really just fantasizing…
I’d like a red Ferrari.
I’d like a super model girlfriend.
I’d like a yacht with a shark tank in it.
Whereas the 5 year Self Determination Flowchart is specific organized predictions based upon current behaviors which can be measured and done daily or weekly.
You’re likely reading this in the days just following Christmas, with the craziness of the holidays and demands of family likely in the rear view and some time before the new year the next few days should naturally be a more introspective period for you. This is the ideal time to devote your attention and an hour to this task. I urge you not to put it off, shortly you’ll be diving back into a frenzy of things to do as your life gets busy again in January.

What is a potential 2018 New Year’s resolution that you are considering? Something you keep thinking about but that you’re not sure is really worthy of your time and effort in 2018?
If you like to read I’ve got good news, I recently undertook the odious task of a content audit on my site. I updated a bunch of articles, fixed a bunch of links and poor formatting. So if you’ve ever perused my website’s blog section and was disappointed by some aesthetic imperfections, I invite you back! Also, I’ve started republishing my articles on Medium.com, give me follow on there. Obviously, I prefer you read my articles on my site but Medium has a really great advantage that a Biohacker would really appreciate; it has a very intuitive smartphone app with a night mode and offline reading. If you, like me, enjoy reading at night, this is whole lot better option than staring at your glowing computer screen! Medium really lives up to it’s name and makes my articles look even better on mobile devices than my website does!
