What Do You Fantasize About?
Do you fantasize about a different life? I was reading about the morning habits of successful people. We all want to be successful, right? Every morning Steve Jobs asked himself , “If today was my last, what would I do?” I know quitting your job and travelling the world probably isn’t realistic (unless of course a lottery ticket was involved).
Take stock of your life today. Were you a completely different person yesterday? Most likely not. Were you a different person 10 years ago? I would hope so. We change gradually, not all of a sudden.
Now, lets go back to that fantasy life. Most people who have the life they love, don’t get that life over night. It takes time. It is one different choice at a time. When you wake up tomorrow ask yourself, “What one thing can I do today to get me to the life I dream about?” Take little steps. Do you dream of a more slowed down pace? Start by listing your commitments, no matter how small. The next day you prioritize those commitments. The next day you figure out the ones you do because you feel obligated but don’t enjoy. The next day you figure out the ones you can drop or delegate. Then each day pick one commitment you want to drop and create a plan to stop or hand off. A month later and life can be simpler. Next month, pick something else!
Creating our dream life is about moving forward one step at a time, little by little.
What one thing do you want to change to make that life happen?
