Now you have written briefly about your future and have had some time to consider more specific issues. This step gives you the chance to integrate all the things that you have just thought and wrote about.
Close your eyes. Daydream, if you can, and imagine your ideal future:
• Who do you want to be?
• What do you want to do?
• Where do you want to end up?
• Why do you want these things?
• How do you plan to achieve your goals?
When will you put your plans into action?
Write about the ideal future that you have just imagined for 15 minutes. Write continuously and try not to stop while you are writing. Don’t worry about spelling or grammar.
Dream while you write, and don’t stop. Write at least until the 15 minutes have passed. Be ambitious. Imagine a life that you would regard as honorable, exciting, productive, creative, and decent.
Choose goals that you want to pursue for your own private reasons, not because someone else thinks that those goals are important. You don’t want to live someone else’s life.
