25 to 5
When I need a boost of clarity, this exercise never fails.
• Label on a sheet of paper numbers 1 through 25. Set a timer for 5 minutes.
• Start the clock, and in less than 5 minutes, write down the 25 things you most want out of your life. Goals, values, aspirations, dreams, pursuits, etc.
• Set a timer for 1 minute.
• Start the clock, and in less than 1 minute, circle your top 5.
• Pour your heart and soul into those top 5; ignore the other 20 at all costs.
