I have had so little time for blogging recently (or anything else for that matter!). Work seems to have enveloped me once again but now we are halfway through the term and I am finding some semblance of normality again (at least for this week). What this lull has given me is time to really let stuff from Tim Ferris' 4 hour work week percolate in my thinking.

I am most intrigued by the notion of goal setting for your dreams. He calls it 'dreamlining' and the cool thing about dreamlining is that it gets you dreaming and setting your dreams into a time line. It's a way of making any dream achievable.
The Vacuum
The first part of dreamlining is to come up with some dreams for your life. You can do this by praying, thinking about things you've always wanted to do, or talking with your partner. However, I found this task realy difficult. Tim calls this a vacuum which is created through work. I believe it can be created through a number of things such as the day to day happenings of life, and barriers such as time and money. I mean how many of us bother dreaming about things that are too expensive for our budgets, let alone have the time to sit and think anyway? So, I had a vacuum.

So here's the first step to claiming back dreams and disabling the vacuum
Find some time to sit and ponder these questions, or at least have them running around in your brain while you go aout your business.
Come up with 5 answers to each of the following:
1.What do you want to have?
2.What do you want to be?
3.What do you want to do?

Good luck with those! Next time let's talk about combating that biggest of all barriers: Realism!
