Micro Plans are the detailed, step-by-step goals and related practices for attaining your vision. Author Kate Northrup writes about what she calls micro planning in this article for the Harvard Business Review:

“Micro-planning is simple. It takes a larger vision and breaks it down into yearly, quarterly, monthly, weekly, and daily check-in practices to plan and adjust as necessary. We get some of the same stabilizing effects that a five-year plan may have given us but with shorter chunks of planning that make more sense in our current economic and cultural context.”

As Northrup suggests, micro planning involves practices and behaviors that happen on smaller time scales. These practices are goals, habits, schedules, routines, and rituals. Another element of micro planning involves both preventatively deciding and planning for challenges, as well as our approach to revising and readjusting (at regular intervals and as necessary).

Distinguishing Concepts

Here is a handy cheat sheet for distinguishing some of the topics in the micro planning section, as these concepts may blend together in colloquial speech.

  • Goals – A specific aim or desired result.
  • Habits – A behavior or practice we repeat regularly and have settled into.
  • Schedules – A plan for when to do specific actions that can apply on the scale of a day, week, month, or year, etc.
  • Routines – A set of behaviors done in the same order and way that repeats at regular intervals such as daily, weekly, monthly, or yearly.
  • Rituals – A ceremony or series of symbolic actions that are deemed special and aim to fulfill a particular intention.

Strategic Goal-Setting

Although purpose itself is not a goal, it is filled with goals. There are acute objectives to accomplish throughout the process of fulfilling our missions; completing a project, raising a certain amount of money, getting a certification, taking on a new role, hosting an event, or creating a program would all constitute goals that might contribute to your purpose. You could think of it like the parts of a bike versus the bike ride itself: in order to go on the ride (experience purpose) you’ll need all the parts (the related goals that make up the purpose).

Purpose-related goals have some benefits that other goals may not. Goals that are tied into our core values, strengths, and interests are what researchers call “self-concordant.” A 1999 study followed college students over three semesters who were engaged in self-concordant or non-self-concordant goals. Twice as many students who had self-concordant goals (81%) than those who did not (31%) were still working on them three semesters later! We are more likely to apply sustained effort to these types of goals and are thus more likely to achieve them (Sheldon et. al 1999); we even get a greater boost to our well-being from attaining them than from other types of goals. In research by Tim Kasser and Richard Ryan, intrinsically inspired goals related to relationships, community, and personal growth (attributes that sync up nicely with purpose-related goals) correlated with 10 times more with self-reported happiness than extrinsic goals like financial striving (Kasser & Ryan 1996).

All this considered, being intentional about your goals when planning your purpose pathways can be a significant boon to your success.

A well designed goal is more attainable than a poorly designed one. Defining the dimensions of a goal can be done with the acronym “SMARTER.”

SMARTER stands for Specific, Measurable, Actionable, Relevant, Timely, Evaluate, and Readjust.

  • Specific

Specific goals enable us to know, precisely, what will be accomplished.  Avoid vagueness by including details.  Consider the following:

I will get rich. → I will make 1.5 million dollars.

I will start working on my novel. → I will write the first chapter of my novel. 

  • Measurable

We must include quantities in our goals for the same reason.  This enhances specificity.

I will write the first chapter of my novel. → I will write a 15 page, first chapter of my novel.

I will learn new songs on the guitar. → I will learn 3 new songs on the guitar.

  • Actionable

Whether or not a goal is actionable comes down to resources, ability, and over-all realisticness.  Do you have the ability to do this goal at this time?  Do you have the things you need, or the ability to acquire the things you need, to achieve this goal?  We can unfortunately set ourselves up for failure when we pick goals outside our actionable-range.  This means we need to re-evaluate.  It is not bad to pick challenging goals, and it may be more supportive to our success if we pick smaller, more actionable goals that can build up to the larger ones. Consider how you can use scheduling to support you in making something possible as well: blocking out time to regularly do something rather than having a deadline can make a goal more actionable. Mentors can also help you determine what is within your range if you’re not sure.

I will make 1.5 million dollars in a year. → May not be actionable for someone that does not currently have a business or investment capital.

I will learn 3 new songs on the guitar in one week. →  May not be actionable for someone who has never played guitar before or is choosing songs far beyond their ability.

  • Relevant

It is important to choose goals that are relevant to our lives, which helps us stay motivated and engaged.  This means choosing goals that “cohere” with the rest of our life, being discerning with which goals we prioritize, and choosing goals that have the most value for the least effort. Mentors can also help you determine what is relevant if you’re not sure.

I will read 40 books this year. →  May not be relevant to someone who is mostly focused on starting a new business.

I will start a large garden. →  May not be relevant to someone living in a rental house, as they would put in a ton of effort into something that will offer the greatest benefit years later when they may no longer live there.

  • Timely

Giving your goals specific time frames, dates, and frequencies enhances them further.  Start dates and finish dates are essential for evaluating your goal and maintaining motivation.

I will write a 15 pg first chapter to my novel starting Monday and finishing by Friday at 8pm.  

I will learn 3 new songs on the guitar by 10pm next Saturday.  

I will study for the licensure exam every weekday morning from 8-9 until the day of the exam.

  • Evaluate

Once in the process of working towards a goal, it is essential to evaluate its relevance and the efficacy of your approach.  It could turn out that progress isn’t being made in a way you’re satisfied with.  Are you still interested?  What’s working and what is not?  You can evaluate your goals and progress on different time-lines for different kinds of goals.  Short-term goals may be evaluated every day or so, while long-term goals perhaps every couple months, bi-annually, or annually.

  • Readjust

After evaluating, you can readjust your approach or the goal itself.  Perhaps circumstances in your life have changed, and it’s no longer feasible to dedicate 10 hours a week to practicing guitar.  Rather than quit or feel inadequate, you can readjust the goal.  This doesn’t equate with giving up- rather it’s about acclimating to new information or circumstances.   It may not be necessary to readjust.

Kaizen & Habits

Note: The content featured here is repeated in Action: Get Moving Now; Do Something Small & Do Something Automatic – Habit Hacking. The exercises in this section will contribute significantly to your micro plan(s), so even if you’ve already read the content, don’t skip the exercises!

Purpose-related goals can often be on fairly large scales. Making them more attainable by making them SMARTER is one thing, but getting there over a long span of time may be a matter of execution style. Breaking our goals down into smaller chunks and establishing habits aids us in automating our progress.

“You do not rise to the level of your goals. You fall to the level of your systems.” –James Clear


James Clear’s popular book, Atomic Habits, explores how incremental progress is the key to changing your habits. While getting a teeny-weeny bit better bit-by-bit may not sound as sexy as waking up with a life-changing routine, Clear compares this type of practice to compounding interest: your progress accumulates over time (versus the less likely scenario of hitting the jackpot overnight). Focusing on smaller steps is easier to do than making massive changes.

Kaizen is a Japanese concept that refers to the practice of continual improvement through small changes over time. It is typically employed in the organizational setting and it is equally applicable on a personal scale. You can utilize the basics of the philosophy while contemplating how you’ll go about achieving your goals (and thus your pathways). When practicing kaizen we prioritize incremental change. By shifting our focus from the entire vision to smaller changes we can keep moving forward with ease. The smallness of the steps is crucial- the action has to feel small enough to you that doing it would feel effortless and not doing it would seem absurd.

“The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step.”–Lao Tzu

To implement kaizen, consider asking yourself the following questions:

  • What is the next small step? Something I could do today or tomorrow?
  • What are five tasks that could each be accomplished in ten minutes or less, that I can do over the next five days?

Heroic founder Brian Johnson discusses wisdom from author Byron Katie in this video for his platform. In her book, Loving What Is, Katie shares a story about coming home to a chaos of messes after a trip away. Rather than be consumed by mental rumination on all of the things she needs to or could do, how to go about them, judgments, or feelings, she begins a single task and focuses on it. She begins with the dishes.

Coach and entrepreneur Brian Johnson synthesizes Katie’s concept in this video with those of other writers, summarizing that we only ever have one thing we need to do- the next most important thing. That next thing may be incredibly mundane and simple, which is precisely the point. Simplifying our path forward into single steps and giving the task in front of us our full attention can help us overcome resistance. Once we have tasks that are easy to engage, we simply repeat the process ad infinitum.

Here are some ways to help you figure it out. Ask yourself the following:

  • What is the next most important thing I need to do?
  • What is the smallest thing I can do right now to move things forward?

The next most important thing for you to do may be to speak to someone in the field or role you’re interested in. The smallest thing you can do to move that forward may be to spend five minutes writing an email to people in your network who could connect you to someone in their network.

If your next most important thing is to learn about a topic, the next smallest task may be spending some time online looking up reputable books about it. The next smallest task after that may involve ordering the books. The next smallest task after that may be to read the first 10 pages, etc., etc.

Small steps add up. Think of Amazon, a business that started as a small book reseller based in a garage. Over the course of 30 years it incrementally expanded into other products and services. The further along it got, the bigger the changes became, one step at a time.

Or think of how learning math represents an exponential growth in knowledge and skill. By starting with simple aspects of arithmetic, those principles apply to algebra, trigonometry, geometry, and statistics. Once you know some of those you can learn calculus and physics. Then you can learn number theory and complex analysis and differential equations.

When it comes to purpose, imagine a woman considering shifting into a career in art and design. Perhaps she spends some time in the evenings reflecting on her strengths, interests, and values. Then she signs up for a class and makes some artwork. By meeting people in the class she learns about an art show to enter her work in. By attending the art show she meets others in the industry and learns about various careers, skill sets, and experience people have. From there she determines what other training she needs and is creatively inspired. Eventually she has enough clarity around what she wants and enough skill to strategically transition into a new pursuit.

Focusing on one thing at a time may feel weird to people who are accustomed to operating with more information in mind. However, once you have the larger outline in place, you can calm your nervous system and mind by focusing on one thing and trusting that your actions will add up. Move in service to the long horizon while staying present.

Author and entrepreneur James Altucher discusses the power of incremental improvement in his book, “Skip The Line.” He admonishes people to get 1% better every day, urging people to recognize that it compounds. Brian Johnson of Heroic refers to this idea regularly on his Optimize platform, repeating that +1 to the infinite power equals infinity.

Make progress and remove resistance by focusing on small and important steps. Once you know the larger trajectory of your path you can determine what the next most important thing for you to do is. Once you’ve identified that, you can break it down into very small steps that are very easy.


When we break huge projects down into small, easy tasks, we make it uncomplicated to take action and make progress. To complement this, we can create new habits that help us automate our small steps.

There is a whole section dedicated to this topic! If you’re dying for more detail after reading the following, visit it to go in-depth with tools and resources.

James Clear, author of Atomic Habits, has been mentioned several times in this section. His work exploring the making and breaking of habit has been incredibly popular since its publication in 2018. The principles he covers in that book are easy to understand and easy to apply, so we’ll summarize them here for your benefit and apply them more broadly to any action you want to start doing.

Essentially, Clear explains that in order to build a new habit, we need to utilize the pathways naturally built into our psychology for establishing behaviors. By understanding how our brain finds value in a behavior and then encourages us to repeat it, we can “hack” ourselves into new habits or actions. Once we have made certain behaviors appealing and easy to do, we can build momentum in executing that action.

The parts of the habit building system as outlined by Clear are as follows:

These could manifest in the following patterns (note that the cycle can reinforce both positive and negative habits because our actions satisfy our cravings and become associated with the cue):





You’re rushing to leave the house but haven’t had breakfast yet.

You want to grab something quick and easy.

You grab a sugary muffin to bring in the car.

Your hunger is temporarily satiated and your need for convenience is met. You end up associating sugary muffins with being in a rush in the morning.

You feel bored while taking your dog on a long walk.

You want to feel productive or entertained on your walk. 

You decide to call a friend.

Your need for entertainment is relieved. You begin to associate being on the phone with walking your dog.

You wake up to your phone alarm and while turning it off you see a bunch of new social media notifications.

You want to know what they are. 

You spend fifteen extra minutes in bed browsing social media.

You begin to associate browsing social media with being the first thing you do in the morning.

The way to hack this system is to design your habits in accordance with how each stage functions:

For example, let’s say you want to start running (or some other regular work out) every morning (he covers a similar example in the book).

CUE: Put your shoes and running clothes out the night before in an obvious place that impedes another task you might choose instead. Put them on the floor in front of the door to your room so you’d physically have to move them to get out, or put them on top of the toilet so you have to move them.

  • Commit to a specific action, time, and place. “I will __ at __ in __.”
  • Make something you already do the cue: “After __ I will __.”
  • Plant a cue where you can’t avoid it.

CRAVING: Make the workout attractive by incorporating something that you really enjoy so you can associate it with the workout. Maybe this means you go to workout in a place you really like (somewhere you can see the sunrise?), you do it with a person you really enjoy, or do an activity you think is fun (dancing, playing a fun game, etc.)

  • Bundle the new action with something you already want to do.
  • Become a part of a group where the action you want to start is normal behavior.
  • Do something you enjoy right before you perform the action.

RESPONSE: Make the workout easy at first so it’s not such a huge endeavor. Start small by perhaps having the workout be 5-10 minutes long, or perhaps something you do in the backyard so you don’t have to go far, or a free class offered in the community so you don’t have to pay for it. What are the reasons you normally say you can’t work out? Find ways to remove those barriers. Incorporate the workout into something you already do so it’s not an added difficulty- start running while you walk the dog, do pushups while your coffee is brewing, do wall sits while you’re on a call.

  • Make it easy by making the action really easy to start (close, accessible, no financial barrier, etc.)
  • Make small choices that lead to the next small choice being easy. (Decide to put on your running shoes. Then decide to step outside and see how the weather feels. Then decide to walk down the block. Then decide to jog for a bit. Etc.)

REWARD: Build up positive associations with the workout by doing something nice for yourself afterwards and celebrating your accomplishment. This could look like a moment of gratitude, getting yourself a coffee, or giving yourself 15 minutes to relax and do nothing. Be conscious of having done what you set out to do and pay attention to positive changes in how you feel.

  • Reward yourself immediately.
  • Track your behaviors so you can celebrate streaks.
  • Never miss a behavior twice

These four principles can be applied to any action you’re attempting to build into your life. You can find creative ways to motivate yourself to act by cueing yourself to do it, making the activity attractive and fun, making the activity as easy as possible, and rewarding yourself afterwards!

Apply the four habit-forming principles of cue, craving, response, and reward to design your own habits and make them stick.

Schedules and Routines

Note: The content featured here is repeated in Action: Get Moving Now; Do Something Automatically – Scheduling & Routine, Rituals. The exercises in this section will contribute significantly to your micro plan(s), so even if you’ve already read the content, don’t skip the exercises!

  • Ben Franklin would “air bathe” (sit in cool fresh air in the nude) in the morning, eat, and work for four hours straight. He’d take a 2 hour break for lunch, then work for another four hours.
  • Simone de Beauvoir would begin work at 10am. She’d write until 1pm, have lunch with friends, and return to work again from 5 until 9, often spending the afternoon working from Sartre’s apartment.
  • Winston Churchill began his day working from bed. He’d wake up at 7:30, have breakfast in bed and read the newspapers, and then begin work by dictating to his secretaries until 11. Then he’d get out of bed, bathe, walk in the garden, and go to his study. He’d have a three course lunch with visitors, then return to work at 3:30. At 5 he’d take a siesta, host important dinners beginning at 8pm, and finish the evening with an hour of work in his study.

Schedules-shmedules, right? Why not go with the flow and embrace our natural whims?

There’s nothing wrong with unstructured time (actually it’s pretty important!). However, when we don’t have a set time to get something done, we could waste a lot of mental effort deciding when, where, and how it can and will happen. Creating a schedule eliminates that mystery. Housing that schedule in a routine allows us to operate on autopilot.

As is evidenced by the examples of famous folks above, successful and influential people have often adopted regular routine ans schedules that have supported their focus and motivation. Poet W.H. Auden came to the same conclusion regarding passion:

“Decide what you want or ought to do with the day, then always do it at exactly the same moment every day, and passion will give you no trouble.”W.H. Auden

Research indicates that routines and scheduling benefit mental health through lowering stress and increasing quality sleep (Hou et. al 2020). Routines also support concentration and creativity by decreasing mental fatigue (Chae & Choi 2019). Whether or not routines and scheduling lead to greater bouts of inspiration and passion hasn’t been heavily explored in the scientific community. Regardless, wildly prolific, impactful, and effective people in history have sworn by and credited their routines for their success.

Let’s take a moment to compare the concepts of schedules and routines:

  • Schedule: A tool for organizing the tasks you want to accomplish into the time available to you.
  • Routine: A fixed pattern or order of doing something that needs little conscious effort to do because it is repeated regularly.

Despite how obvious it may sound, it’s worth stating that schedules can be useful because they help us plan (and thus find a place for all that we want to accomplish or experience) while routines can be useful because they become automatic (and thus help us make progress without much conscious effort).  It’s worth distinguishing them because scheduling forces us to be intentional and sets us up for successful, impactful routines.

In order to reduce resistance to action, set yourself up by establishing daily, weekly, and monthly routines. When it comes to your day and week, support your habits, ambitions, and energy by creating a schedule you can reliably follow.

This exercise walks you from big picture to small by starting with visualizing the next year of your life, then a typical month in that year, a typical week, and a typical day.


“There are certain things I do if I sit down to write,” he said. “I have a glass of water or a cup of tea. There’s a certain time I sit down, from 8:00 to 8:30, somewhere within that half hour every morning,” he explained. “I have my vitamin pill and my music, sit in the same seat, and the papers are all arranged in the same places. The cumulative purpose of doing these things the same way every day seems to be a way of saying to the mind, you’re going to be dreaming soon.” –Stephen King

We can employ rituals to motivate, inspire, and engage us on our purpose journeys. Rituals tend to be associated with religious rites, but they populate the secular world as well. Researchers looking into the social and practical function of ritual tell us that they work to frame a time and behavior as special. By using them to signal to our brains that something we are doing is special and important, we can encourage ourselves to stay motivated and engaged with behaviors and practices related to our purpose pathways.

Definitions of Ritual:

  • “Rituals are a set of actions designed to be special. They seek to bring about some kind of change.”(DeSteno 2021)
  • “A ritual or a rite is a series of symbolic acts focused toward fulfilling a particular intention.” (R. Grayson)
  • “A religious or solemn ceremony consisting of a series of actions performed according to a prescribed order.” -Oxford Dictionary

Some common examples of ritual:

  • Birthdays
  • Holidays like Christmas, Halloween, etc.
  • Marriage
  • Honeymoon
  • Divorce
  • Babyshowers
  • Family Vacation
  • Morning rituals
  • Bedtime rituals
  • Quinceanera

“The most salient characteristic of ritual is its function as a frame. It is a deliberate and artificial demarcation. In ritual, a bit of behavior or interaction, an aspect of social life, a moment in time is selected, stopped, remarked upon.

…[rituals] call the subject’s attention to his undertaking. He is acting with awareness. He has taken the activity out of the ordinary flow of habit and routine, and performed the gesture to arouse in himself a particular attitude, demonstrating that his actions mean more than they seem.” –Barbara Myerhoff, Secular Ritual

Rituals frame certain times, spaces, and actions as special. They commonly employ elements that capture our senses, have a sequence of specific actions and materials, and operate concurrently across the levels of mind, body, and spirit.

They can be deeply meaningful or abstract and possibly interpreted as random by an outsider. Be it sprinkling water on an infant during a Christian Baptism, counting down until the clock strikes 12 on New Years and setting off fireworks, Maya Angelou renting a hotel room every morning to write but never to stay the night, or throwing cinnamon at 25 year olds in Denmark, in the end they prime us for specific attitudes and behaviors.

Engaging in ritual signals to our brains that something is important. By extension, we may be able to couple desired behaviors and actions with this sentiment in order to help us stay invested in certain endeavors by nature of reaffirming whatever it is the ritual is designed to honor and/or bring about.

In the context of micro planning, we can use ritual to delineate when and how we act on specific tasks.

A few more famous ritual examples

Georgia O’Keefe would wake at dawn, light a fire and make tea, and get back in bed to watch the sun rise. When it was fully risen she would begin working.

Voltaire worked from his bed in the mornings and evenings because he felt calm and safe there.

Charles Dickens took a three hour walk every afternoon to seek inspiration.

Tim Ferris performs what he calls his morning ritual every day to set himself up for focus, peace, and productivity. He makes his bed, meditates for 20 minutes, has a light 30 minute workout, drinks some strong tea, and journals for 10 minutes about what he is grateful for.

Ritual or Routine? It may be easy to argue that any of the above examples qualify as routine rather than ritual. While a series of behaviors or actions could look the same as a ritual or routine, the difference lies in the intention. When an individual imbues their actions with symbolic significance and sees the pattern of actions as special or important, it becomes a ritual. The emotional significance and purpose of a series of actions qualify otherwise boring and task-related behaviors as ritual. Learn more about ritual here.

Take a moment to consider something in your life that is important to you and/or something you would like to start doing more of/ experiencing more, or something you would like to grow into. This guide will help you design a ritual.

Make Micro Plans

The following printable page is intended as an overview of your micro plans, highlighting essential elements all in one place. Using the timelines, goals, habits, kaizen steps, routines, and rituals you devised within the micro planning section, you will fill in the relevant spaces provided on the page. You can use this page as a reference along your journey and as a tool for organizing your approach.

Before hashing out your micro plans, make sure you’ve got a good grip on these factors:

You’re clear what pathway you want to flesh out on the micro level (depending on which CYOA pathway you’ve chosen, you may be making micro plans for multiple pathways. Make sure to keep them organized and separated)

You’ve done your “experimentation as action” on the pathway (although, honestly, this is never really “done.” It’s smart to keep experimenting, even 10 years down the line!) and have a well-rounded understanding of the following:

How long it may take to reach certain milestones in this pathway

The qualifications, skills, education, and processes for being able to do this pathway

How this pathway is typically lived as well as some outlier examples

Typical challenges that people confront when pursuing similar pathways

Resources required (time, money, energy, etc.)

You’ve done your macro plan for your chosen pathway and understand how it would fit into your life and impact other commitments and priorities

You’ve mapped out a handful of goals, habits, kaizen steps, schedules, routines, and rituals related to this pathway


If you’ve got all of the above, you’re ready to fill in the micro plan worksheet. Feel free to print multiple copies to include more information or plot out a micro plan for a different pathway.

For a hard copy of this exercise, print the PDF through the button below or access the exercise through the Purpose Workbook

But Wait! There’s More.

Once you’ve plotted out the meat of your micro plan, you’re not finished quite yet with planning. Essential to your success is planning for how you’ll manage challenges and make revisions as you go along.
