I am listening to the book Lucky Bitch by Denise Duffield Thomas (1). She shared an exercise where you describe your ideal day. I’ve done this exercise in the past and it’s a wonderful thing to do as it makes you think about what you want. It doesn’t matter that your reality is different, everyone starts somewhere.
I don’t have a terrace that overlooks the lake….yet. My husband and I were having fun brainstorming what it was we wanted and he dreamt of having a terrace and I dreamt of having a view over a lake. I dream of having a team of virtual assistants helping me with tasks in the background, I currently work with one and would like to expand this so that I can focus on the areas that I excel at. Admin is one of the areas I am happy to outsource.
When we describe our ideal day, we can start making steps towards it. If you can allow yourself to dream (and not talk yourself out of anything) – what would your ideal day look like?
