Stave 2: Prioritize!
Take your Dream List and yellow highlighter to your creative place. Read through your list. Think about what you’ve written. Highlight the dreams which resonate, the ones that jump up and give you a warm jolt. Enjoy yourself. After, get up and walk away from it. Celebrate by giving your brain a break. You’ve just made significant progress. How? You’ve dreamed up what you want to do. You’ve prioritized it by choosing the ones you’re most serious about. Your brain is being re-programmed to help you live your dreams. Reward yourself!
The next step: You choose one way. Here are your options:
The Best Way (a bit harder)—
Transfer those yellow-highlighted dreams to another page. As you rewrite them, begin sorting into categories by importance. Decide when you want to accomplish them and affix a date. Don’t worry about getting everything right, just get it done. You’re continuing the creation process and it can be messy. Don’t think too hard and don’t worry about how to accomplish it all. Rewrite your goals in order of importance.
A Good Way (a bit easier)—
Go through your list and affix a goal date to your highlighted dreams. Think about their order of importance and prioritize them. Rewrite your top 20% on one sheet of paper or a 5×7 card.
Either way you go, keep your list in your face as much as you can. Carry it anywhere you go. Writing it out by hand, handling it, keeping it in your face, and thinking about it, all contribute to your ability to achieve your goals faster. Every time you write, prioritize, and re-write your goals, you drive them deeper into your subconscious. Your subconscious drives your conscious behavior. You’re simply programming yourself for success. You have your list of goals, prioritized. Your brain has its targets—where it must get you by when. You’ve got dreams and you’ve got dates! You’re on a roll, let’s keep it going! How? We’ll work on your plan.
