"The indispensable first step to getting the things you want out of life is this: decide what you want." -- Ben Stein
So many of us take the time of our life for granted. We dream that tomorrow will bring us what we really want. But we won't get what we want tomorrow if we don't do something about it today.
What's most important for your life? Create a Hot List of key journaling topics so you can get your mind building your ideal life NOW!
Create a Hot List of topics to explore the potential of your life.
This is basically a to-do list, but it's one with a difference.
The entries on your Hot List will be topics or tasks that truly
affect your quality of life. Areas you want to explore more
deeply. You know - the ones you never seem to get around to. The
ones that will make your life your own!
Keep a prioritised Hot List visible and handy so that during your assigned journaling time or when you have 5 to 15 minutes free of commitments, you can focus on what really matters.
Add new topics to your Hot List as they occur to you. Try different journaling tools as you work with the topics. For those really important issues, use 3 to 5 different tools focused on one subject so you get different and deeper perspectives. If you work on one area from different angles, this will create tension and shifts in your subconscious mind. And these shifts can bring understanding, release and change.
See our Focus/Hot List form on One Page - Keep the bigger picture and your To Do Hot List in perspective.
We'll help you create your first Hot List. Relax, take a few deep breaths and then ask the question, "In my highest interest, what topics shall I explore in my journal?" Ask the question 3 times, emphatically and clearly. When you are ready, start writing. If you get stuck, consider some of the following questions:
- How can I free up more time for myself?
- What goal(s) do I want to achieve this month?
- What financial matter do I most need to tackle?
- What life challenges do I want to resolve?
- What are my ambitions and dreams?
