Make a plan!
Shines a light on what's really important in life. When we're forced to write down specific goals, we're forced to confront our inner conflict. Do we really want that job that seems great? Do we really want more money? Or do we just want to be useful and happy? Do we want to just spend more time with the family? How badly do we want to start our own business? Writing down specific goals helps to crystallize what's really important to us and what's not. True feelings and desires are often revealed during times of great confusion and conflict.
