Look What Our Users Have To Say!
Last year as the the year came a to close, I was ready for a shift in my business & life, and I participated in a Design Your Life e-workshop that Pam held. I had been using the design your life books over the years, and I had a new one in hand as she trained. For the first time, I FULLY filled out the pages about my mission & vision & dreams & mapped out the goal time frames as the book is laid out. I spent time planning each goal intentionally with deadlines - even relationship goals I had within my marriage & family.
My very first 90 Day Planner was the tool that made the difference in taking a quantum leap in 3 areas of my life. You suggested we pick only 3 areas. I followed the plan exactly as you suggested making sure every week to go over the previous week things I did well and things I could do better. The three categories I picked were spiritual, health/weight and career. #1 I didn't quite know how to chart spiritual growth. I wanted something tangible so I decided that memorizing scripture could be one way to make sure I was reading my bible and having a meaningful quiet time with the Lord. During those first 90 days I memorized quite a few scriptures and all of Psalm 91 and the first chapter of Colossians. #2 By charting the food section in the Planner I became aware of the extra "bites" I snacked on and the accountability in that journaling caused me to lose 23# in that time (a year later I have not gained it back). #3 Next, in my career I wanted to advance to a higher circle of achievement. I made the jump during those 90 days (October-Dec) from $300,000 to being on target at Leadership Conference for Half Million. So needless to say,
I have been using Pam’s Design Book and Focus Folder consistently for a few weeks. Prior to this time, I was one of those over organized directors that could not find what I needed. It is unreal how these tools have helped me to focus on keeping the main thing the main thing. I am insisting that each of my directors use both tools and that all of the consultants in my leadership development class use the Design Book. Spending time focusing on the wrong areas has limited my growth.
Have you ordered Pam Shaw’s Book/CD/Director Focus Folders? I just received Pam Shaw’s CD “Designing My Life, Living My Vision” and the director focus folders – WOW was it powerful! I had gotten the book “Designing My Life, Living My Vision at Seminar and really had not used it, because I wasn’t quite sure How to Use it (is anybody out there with me)! Well, if you are feeling the same way, please order the CD NOW!!!! It will truly help you to develop your systems in all areas. I think as directors being accountable and also working on “us” in all areas of our life is so important to keep us focused. Pam also mentions that discipline and accountability are necessary to move forward! Are you willing to change – Pam states that “Growth is Optional, but Change is Mandatory!”
Too many times in the past I would make amazing goals for my life, only to have them sizzle two weeks later. For the first time, I have the plan of action, guidance, and steps on how to accomplish those goals. This planner has been the BEST tool ever for my business!
Oh my goodness .... the planner totally works when you do !! it’s easy to get distracted with Life, but the planner , it is like a work out ! Do what you know to do each day , go through the questions what needs to be done and move forward when the Tasks are done the results happen.

f you could change anything in your life, what would it be? You can change anything in 90 days if you have the right tools– from getting a new job, improving your relationships, sharpening beneficial habits or enhancing your living situation. The best tool you can use to start your life transformation is the 90-day planner. It has been designed to work with the Pamela Shaw goal setting METHOD to help you design and enjoy more of your life.
The 90-day planner is more than just a calendar or business planner; it is a system that helps you maximize your time, days and weeks. Using the 90-day planner helps you to not only guides you to better manage your time but also achieve your goals.
Achieve Your Goals
An integral part of achieving goals is to write them down in a place you will see them. If you fail to write down your goals, they are just fleeting thoughts you have without any real strategized or integrated effort into making them a reality. The 90-day planner has sections to write and break down your goals and review them regularly- In fact, if you follow the guided process, you’ll RE READ and review them min. 52 times and completely write them out quarterly- 4 different times. REPETITION is your friend!
One key aspect of goal setting is to have a big goal with ways to break it down into little goals. For instance, having the goal to get a better job is good, but planning and knowing how to get there is better. Take your goal and break it down into smaller, achievable goals by reverse goal setting. For getting a better job, some of these smaller goals may look like:
- get more training to qualify for a better position
- go back to school if a degree is required
- take advantage of opportunities to learn a new skill when offered- volunteer!
- take a class on interview skills
- learn how to improve your resume
Put these goals into a timeline of when you expect to complete them. Having the goals written down in your 90-day planner where you can review them often helps keep them on your mind. That way, when opportunities come along, you will recognize them and be prepared to act on them. When your goals are regularly reviewed and made a part of your daily routine, you can actively work toward them.
Better Manage Your Time
Everyone has the same 24 hours a day. The difference is how each person chooses to view, allot and then take action on those hours. One of the main purposes of the 90-day planner is to help learn to manage time in a way that gets you closer to the life you want. Achieving your goals is possible when you are dedicating time to your goals. As Pam says in her core training “Time invested in one area is time away from another; CHOOSE wisely.”
Within the 90-day planner, there are calendars and ½ hour time slots in a daily planner format. At the beginning of each week, plan out your time for everything you need to do. Pre set your schedule the night before. You can also start each day this same way, reviewing your schedule and adding in specific time slots when you do something to work toward your goal. By scheduling out each ½ hour of every day, you are setting expectations for yourself and slowly getting closer to your overall goal.
At the end of each day and then again at the end of the week, review how you did. Take the time to do an honest evaluation on how you did and what you will do better going forward. By creating a pattern of reviewing and reminding, you make your goals a major focus of your life.
The Pamela Shaw Method uses the 90-day planner as a tool to design your life and live your vision by setting and achieving your goals. If you are interested in learning more about how to clarify your dreams, improve your life, stay motivated, or find the power within yourself to become who you really want to be, see more of Pamela Shaw’s educational videos. The sooner you start, the faster you will experience authentic living the life of your dreams.
Many people live their lives just coasting through time. Change is scary and the unknown is intimidating, so people try not to rock the boat and accept the status quo. Does this sound like you or how you approach life? What if you learned a better way to live that helps you take control of more desirable future?
Don’t Dwell in the Past
The one thing that holds people back from living their dreams and controlling their future is a memory of the past. They dwell on mistakes or bad things that have happened, perhaps struggle to believe that there is more for them. Just because something negative happened in the past does not mean that it will always be that way.
The future is bright and full of possibilities. Instead of using your mistakes in the past as a beating stick, use them as a learning experience on how to create better choices, outcomes, options in the future.
Do not be afraid to dream big and make grand plans. If you could live your best life, what would change? If you could design your life so you are happiest and feel fulfilled, what would that look like?
Visualize your dream life. Some things to consider are:
- What do I really want? (journal that EVERY day for a month and see what emerges)
- What job would I be working?
- What does an ideal day consist of?
- What people will be in my life? Where do I need to create a boundary?
- What will give your life purpose and meaning?
Using these questions as starting points, carefully consider your preferred priorities and how they will take precedence in your life.
While you may think that dreaming is just for fun, your dreams can become reality. If you visualize your future and truly want that life, find the motivation to create change. Instead of just letting life happen to you, take control of your future and work toward making your dreams real. Ruminating on the past repeats the past. Envisioning a clear future draws you towards people, opportunities and circumstances reflective of that vision.
Keep Changes Small
Even though your dreams are big, it is important to keep the changes small. Break down your dreams into smaller, more achievable steps. Not all goals will be broken down into obvious steps. A common goal is to lose weight or be healthier. This is easily broken down into smaller steps that include eating healthier, setting times to work out each day, developing habits that turn into beneficial routines, etc. Find a win in the moment by asking, is this what I really want (to eat, to do, not to do) or is it because the rut of yesterday is taking over? Over time, these small steps will build up into achieving the ultimate goal.
Some less obvious goals may be getting into a health relationship with a significant other or making a million dollars, there are less obvious ways to break it down. Get creative with how you make small changes by finding mix and mingle events and commit to attend them. Start knocking on doors or make cold calls to expand your client base and sell your products.
By keeping changes small and intentional, you can warm up to change. Making small changes over time is the best way to ensure the changes last.
Control Your Future
When you design your life and take control of your future, anything is possible. Become a more active participant in your life and gain confidence. You can make your life whatever you want with small daily wins that create change over time.

As Pam says, ‘You can’t live a perfect day until you design what one looks like.”
