[This is a three-part exercise that we will move through over the next three weeks.]
Part 1: Make a list of your long-term goals. What is important to you to accomplish in the next 5-10-20 years? Try not to censor your writing. Build your list with whatever comes to mind. Consider all aspects of your life: work, personal, spiritual, service, family, friends, hobbies, habits, new ventures, past successes that you'd like to repeat. Let your stream of thoughts flow. Don't second guess or tell yourself that something isn't practical or reasonable - this is the time to think big! Transcend any boundaries that your mind sets by allowing yourself to entertain any and all ideas that come to mind. You've got one minute…
When you’re done, keep the list somewhere that you can see it and re-read it several times over the next week. Make sure you have it on-hand next Monday for Part 2 of this exercise!
