Everybody has dreams. Daydreams, dreams while you sleep, and dreams of what you wish for the future.
I’ve always believed that dreams are goals you have nurtured to become real in your life.
But how do you know if the voice speaking to your heart will lead you in the right direction?
I was reading Brant Pinvidic’s book, The 3-Minute Rule. His approach to better presentations happens to be my approach to goal validation.
When an idea pops into your head, ask yourself four questions:
1) What is it? Do you understand exactly what you want?
2) How does it work? How will you go about reaching your goal? What will likely be the outcome?
3) Can you do it? Is your plan reasonable? Do you have the time, skills, money?
4) Are you sure? If you are willing to put in the effort are you confident you can achieve your goal?
Use these next time something is holding you back from turning your dreams into reality. I promise. The clarity you are seeking is around the corner.
