"Organizing is what you do before you do something,
so that when you do it, it is not all mixed up." -- A. A. Milne
Imagine your ideal day, week, month and year, and then anchor
the items in your calendar.
"Begin doing what you want to do now.
We are not living in eternity.
We have only this moment, sparkling like a star in our hand --
and melting like a snowflake."
- Marie Beyon Ray
If we want fulfillment in life, we need to do what fulfills us now. With dream days, weeks and months, we transfer our ideal use of time to our calendars. We actually book time in our daily, weekly and monthly schedules for those important activities that mean most to us. If we commit to making room for what's meaningful, we must also be willing to let go of what's not. This process of adding and subtracting activities is a tangible way of bringing our priorities to life.
You may use the Dream Calendar form to map out your perfect dream day, week, month and year. Idealize each timeframe and think of the important things you want in your life that you don't usually make time for. Consider activities like exercise, meditation, journaling, reading, learning, family time, relaxation, research and review.
Once you have completed the form, transfer these commitments to your calendar. Highlight or box these reserved times so they cannot be missed. Do not compromise this time. It's the time of your life!
I highly recommend you block off time for review, tracking, support groups and journaling. These activities offer a high payback. Commit at least 15 minutes per day, an hour per week, 3 hours per month, 6 hours per quarter and 2 days per year to review, reflect, track, refocus, and connect with what is important.
Don't allow yourself to say this isn't possible! Demand more. Reach higher. Anything's possible - it's just a matter of changing your priorities.
If you are seriously committed to going deeper and reaching higher, then make a spot on your calendar right now for daily journaling. Even 15 minutes will do. Make and take the time for one of the most powerful growth tools available.
Map out an ideal dream day, week, month and year for yourself.
