What’s the thing you most want to achieve next year? How do you imagine you’ll feel when you get it? Free? Happy? Complete? Blissful? Write that feeling down. Then, brainstorm 10 things you can do, or 10 new thoughts you can think, in order to experience that feeling today.
I would really, really, really like to score a travel writing assignment.
I would feel…nervous at embarking on a brand new challenge; elated at travelling somewhere new and without footing the bill myself; inspired to research the destination and imagine what the trip might involve; excited at the thought of seeing my name in print.
As for 10 things that could elicit similar feelings today, here’s a few I came up with
- Making a nice dinner for my parents
- Running a 10k
- Volunteering for a cause
- Recording one of the songs I’ve learned recently
- Getting down to business and finally setting aside an afternoon to make this pie.
