Here’s your mission tonight, if you choose to accept it. Spend one half hour of your limited time on this big, blue marble hurtling through space writing down what your best life would look like. The questions below are to help guide you through this.
Done correctly, this is an extremely uplifting exercise. Just organizing and prioritizing your best life can increase your happiness, optimism, and belief that you can accomplish your goals.

When you answer these questions, don’t edit yourself – or tell yourself “no” – or “you’re being unrealistic.” This is Fantasyland time. No limits. Reality will come later. We’re looking for your best life.
We want the answers to come from your gut. Write as quickly as you can the first answers that pop in your head. Listen to that quiet voice inside you. Let it get loud!
