I recently came across a very detailed post by Amanda, at Paper Pens Ink, that carefully describes her planning system.
I can appreciate it, but I wouldn't use it. I wouldn't use it because I couldn't possibly keep such a complex system working for long. That doesn't make it a bad system; that just makes it the wrong system for me.

If you're looking for a far-reaching, meticulously crafted planning system that stretches from dreams and goals all the way down to "next actions," then you should seriously consider Amanda's system.
