3 step career plan template to decide on a career

There are three steps to the ultimate career plan template, which I will show you here.

But first, let’s get real.

No, you cannot fit an entire career action plan on a one or two page template. Any career planning tool that claims to do so is probably not worth your time.

Take it from a career plan coach with 25+ years experience

As a career planning and career discovery coach, I know what I’m talking about.  Career discovery is the only thing I focus on.

All of my career plan templates,  career workshops and career planning tools are geared to one purpose: to help you discover the Career Destiny you are meant for.

I have found that the best career planning tools give you  a concise, tight career discovery process.

That’s why I built a process that identifies the 3 steps that define your Career Destiny.

Step One – In what career role can you be a superstar?

  • Assess the career role you can thrive in, where you are a good fit and are confident, one that aligns with your career values and beliefs
  • Identify the best application of your talents, so you don’t use them in the wrong job
  •  Identify your workday lifestyle – if you can imagine it it can manifest

Step Two – Pinpoint your ideal customer

  • Assess the who your ideal customer, client or target market is, so you enjoy serving them all day
  • Knowing your target market is where your job satisfaction comes from

Step Three – Establish the industry, field or line of work where you will operate best

  • Assess what field, industry, trade, line of work you enjoy working in
  • Determine who you want to work with all day: what I call your Peer Work Community – this is how you  are lifted to the top

The 3 step career planning and discovery process is all you need to define the career or business is your Destiny. It has all the ingredients to find the career you will love for a lifetime.


Summary: Use the 3 steps career planning template to customize results to your particular needs

Using these three steps insures you build out a plan that fulfills the career you are meant for. You are not squeezing yourself into someone else’s template or worse, a career aptitude or personality test that squeezes you into a box.

The beauty of the 3 step career planning process is that you can customize it to reflect your skills, traits and unique one-of-a-kind personality.
