  The Phoenix Plan

Program Steps : A Summary and Guide

Firstly, using a Questionnaire, you will make a thorough Evaluation of your present lifestyle, noting and prioritising the areas in which positive change is desirable and possible.

You will consider and work out the practical details of the kinds of changes that could realistically be implemented in some of these areas over the eight week period. Then you will select the life areas you consider most important to work on and you will carefully choose and write down specific behavioural goals for each area selected.

This self-searching section of the Program is most important for you as it indicates to a large extent where you want to go in your life and what you want to change in your current lifestyle. For this reason, this part of the Program should not be hurried through, but you should devote as much time as is necessary to work out clearly the priorities for your self-development. It is probably a good idea, at this stage, to equip yourself with a notebook in which you can jot down some of your ideas and aspirations. It should also be recognised that you are likely to progress better in the Program if you select a small but realistic number of Goals. Trying to achieve too much in too short a time is likely to be too demanding with the resulting danger that you give up. Rather, aim for a few important Goals which, if achieved in the eight week period, will give you a real sense of achievement and personal success. If you attain these goals, your success will become a valuable motivating factor if and when you work on the Program a second time.

Do not worry if right now you are somewhat unsure of what these Goals should be. You will find that when you start to work through the evaluation Questionnaire you will gain insights into how you perceive what is currently happening in many critical areas of your life.

     Next, you will break down each specific behavioural goal into a  series of eight weekly targets, starting with an easy version and/or low frequency of the behaviour and gradually working up to the full target, as originally selected [ sample Goals Summary and Weekly Target  Sheets will explain this more clearly ] The Links and personal development Resources [ see Helpful Links page] included on the web site may additionally assist you in drawing up appropriate goals and target behaviours.

   Optionally, you can consult with a friend or buddy, fully explaining what you are setting out to achieve by the end of your four to eight week program. You discuss with that person your weekly Target Sheets and you invite her/him to support your plans and to assist you in monitoring progress on a weekly basis.


The Phoenix Self-Help Life Plan set out in this web site is not meant  as a substitute for skilled professional or medical help where this might be required. Users work through the program at their own  risk and the author cannot be held responsible for any adverse effects or outcomes experienced by any individuals because of it.

The Phoenix Self-Help Life Plan is free of complicated psychological terms and can be followed by any adult with a desire and determination to work to improve the quality of their lifestyle. The basis of the approach involved in working the Plan is related to rational-emotive cognitive therapy, which stresses the vital interrelationships between our thoughts, feelings and behaviours. In simple terms, what we think determines how we feel and, largely, how we behave : if we change our thoughts, over which we have total control, we can more easily change our feelings and our behaviours.


Although this DIY life coaching Phoenix Plan is set out to cover a ten week period, its time frame can be easily modified to suit personal circumstances and time availability.

 For example, the first week [instead of two weeks] could be used to set up the Plan and the monitoring of goals etc. could cover four weeks [instead of eight].

The most important thing, however, is to ensure that you plan well in advance of starting on the Plan’s program.
