Mission 2011: Plan for Success With This Special Event Worksheet

This is the fifth and final Mission 2011 post on the topic of special events, a topic we have been exploring together during this month of March.

For those of you who do better when you write things down, I have a treat for you. I have created this Special Event Worksheet form to help you plan your next special event. I hope it gets you thinking about and planning for special events in a way that ensures your success.

Rather than go into a detailed discussion of how I would use this form, I decided to share with you the actually form I recently used when I planned for my trip to the Mayo Clinic in Arizona earlier this month. Simply click on the picture below to view it full size:

Special Event WorksheetAs you can see, I included a wrap-up section at the bottom of the form, a place to write down your thoughts on what worked, what didn't and what you'd like to try the next time. This section gives you a prompt to evaluate your experience so you can do better next time. And by better, I mean: have more fun, be more prepared, get more help, schedule more rest, avoid flare-ups, etc., etc., etc.

If you would like a copy of this form, simply click to download the Special Event Worksheet PDF to your computer from Google Docs. You can also email me and I will send the PDF to you.

Next month I plan to talk about exercise during my Thursday Mission 2011 posts. I also plan to share with you a down-loadable copy of the Exercises to Help Manage Orthostatic Hypotension I received while at the Mayo Clinic in Arizona.

So have I inspired you to attend a special event this past month? I sure hope so! I'd love to hear about your upcoming events, so leave me a comment and let me know the special things you are planning to do.

Thanks so much for ALL the forms you've created. Love to read what you put together for us. You are very inspiring. I look forward to seeing what you've come up with every day. Thanks for remaining so positive. Sounds like you enjoyed Arizona. Or maybe just because I love it so much I made that inference.

I just downloaded this form and plan on using it - I think I will keep them in my journal as a great way to monitor and to help plan my events with my Addison's disease and Fibro. Very nice! Thanks!

Thanks! This will be helpful for the future. Right now I am bedridden 99% of the time so I don't leave my bed, let alone the house. But someday I hope that changes, and this will come in handy!

I think that one of the most important things in living life with chronic illness is evaluating a circumstance - past/present/future. By investigating and learning we can figure out ways we can do those same activities in the future in an even better way. Nice form!
