The Ideal Self: Using a series of exercises (see “Exercises” toward the end of this review for examples), the authors suggest that you write a Personal Vision, much like a personal strategic plan.
a. Where will you be in 5, 10, or even 20 years? You pick the horizon.
Address things like your health, your work, family, and all the
elements of a balanced life [in fact, the well known “Balance Wheel”
might be the best guide for this].
c. Write an overview in a
paragraph or two and then expand to several pages with sufficient
details to show clearly what your hopes and dreams look like for all
major aspects of your life.
