Well if you’re like me, the answer is not enough. Don’t get me wrong, I ‘m not saying that playing and being in the present moment is a bad thing. It’s a lot of fun. In many ways, that’s what life about. All work and no play makes Jack (or Jill) a dull person.
But every now and then it helps to take a seat and think about where your life is heading. If you stay on your present course, where will you be in 5 years? Do you like what we see? With that picture in mind, do you feel fulfilled or anxious? Do you feel like you’re on the right track? Do you wish it could be different?
If your life in 2020 looks peachy to you then congratulations. Continue on your journey. If not, then today is the day to change gears. And this blog is where you can begin.
It’s simple. Write down where you want to be in 5 years. Start your entry with “In five years, I WILL be…” The word ‘will’ helps you to cut out thinking in terms of maybe-sort of-possibly. You need to make this an important committment to yourself. It’s a pact between you and you.
Be specific. Add details about location, time of year and the people that surround you. These attributes make the picture of your future more real to your brain. The goal of this exercise is not a one-time writing assignment. It’s about you helping yourself to get what you want out of life.
