interconnected parts. First of all, you should find out your main life
values, the main goal of your life and the strategy that will help you to

compound. For example, if your main goal is happiness, you should find out
– what do you need to be happy. The next stage is operating planning: brief review of your plans, plans for year,
month, week, day. To manage these plans and control carrying-out you should
use time-management techniques.

system, Balanced Scorecard, willing management, financial management and
all of this will work only if the first stage was realized sufficiently. All
