Today, I’m sharing the prompt for an exercise that will define and transform your life:
What does your life look like in ten years? In detail, write about your day ten years from today. If you could do anything you wanted – no rules, no obligations, no should’s – what would your most remarkable life look like exactly ten years from today? Write about your whole day, from the time you awake to the time you go to bed, in as much detail as you can. Where are you? What kind of clothes are you wearing? What are you thinking about? Who are you with?
Make time for yourself to complete this exercise and then come back to it every few months. (I read mine quarterly.) Notice how visualizing and writing down your dream shifts your perspective both now and every time you revisit it.
