ten-year plan for a remarkable life

"imagining what your life could be if you could do anything you wanted without any fear of failure... let's say it is winter 2027. what does your life look like? what are you doing? where are you living? who are you living with? do you have pets? what kind of house are you in? is it an apartment? are you in the city? are you in the country? what does your furniture look like? what is your bed like? what are your sheets like? what kind of clothes do you wear? what kind of hair do you have? tell me about your pets. tell me about your significant other. do you have children? do you have a car? do you have a boat? talk about your career. what do you want? what are you reading? what are you making? what excites you? what is your health like? write this one day ten years from now. so one day in the winter of 2027, what does your whole day look like? start from the minute you wake up, brush your teeth, have your coffee or tea, all the way through until minute you tuck yourself in at night. what is that day like for you? dream big, dream without any fear. write it all down. you don’t have to share it with anyone other than yourself. put your whole heart into it. and write like there is no tomorrow. write like your life depends on it, because it does. and then read it, once a year, and see what happens. it's magic."
