Finding Your Destination(s)

Finding your destination(s) may be easy for you, or perhaps it will be difficult.  Maybe you've never dared to think about it before.  Dare now!  Take 10-20 minutes to write a list of all the things you enjoy and want to accomplish in life.  Don't think about anything else except what you want to accomplish, and what brings you joy.  These don't have to be fleshed out ideas right away; we'll work on defining them and how to reach them later.  Now is not the time to worry about how you're going to get there, now is the the time to figure out where there is

Now that you've made your list, go through it and decide which areas really matter to you.  What areas truly reflect your core values?  You can have as many or as few destinations as you wish; this is your recipe for happiness.

Next, go through your list and group them in to common themes if there are any.  Those themes are your destinations; the groupings are a bit of detail on which paths to follow to get to your destination.

Here is a list of my destinations as an example:

1)  Become a better musician.
2)  Be healthy and active.
3)  Be more giving of myself.

Perhaps you will find that I have similar destinations to yours or perhaps you will find that your destinations and mine differ greatly, but we can still learn from each other.  With just a bit of tweaking you may be able to adjust my steps to become your own no matter what our differing end goals may be.

What destinations are you seeking?
