Thirty-One Days of Goal Setting – Day 20

Day twenty! We’re about two-thirds of the way through the 31 Days of Goal-Setting now.

Today we’re getting little more specific about our goals and future, but not too specific. The question is, Brainstorm – what dreams do you want to achieve in your lifetime?

Y’all, true story: today may be my favorite of the entire month’s exercises.

While the last few days have been all about states of being and feeling, your dreams are your somewhat concrete life goals. These can be career aspirations, goals related to family or friendships, “bucket list” items – anything that you think “I’d like to do that/have accomplished that someday”.

Here was my strategy for this exercise: Write down absolutely everything that you ever think to yourself “Wouldn’t it be cool if one day I did…”

Think dreamily about being the bass player for a heavy metal band? Want to save enough money to buy a castle someday? Have your eye on running a marathon one of these years? Swear you’re going to write that epic solarpunk series one of these years? Write it all down.

After you’ve finished your initial list, go back and review each of the goal areas from Part Two. This will probably spark some additional goals you hadn’t thought of. Write them down.

Take a quick look through your list of what you want to be from yesterday. Are there any concrete goals related to them that you haven’t already written down? Then go ahead and write them down.
