This activity is certainly not a new one but very powerful none-the-less.  I hear about it and then forget about it for a while, only to have it resurface.  I’ve never actually written mine but, interestingly have “goals” on my to-do list right now.  These don’t have to be just in the narrow box I originally was thinking…they can be anything.  This tool not only helps you by making things more real because you wrote them down but it also helps you think creatively and realize your inner desires.

Life is what happens to you while you are busy making other plans. –John Lennon
