Imagine it is your 80th birthday. The party is being held at your home. Your closest family and friends are there. Each gives a speech describing the greatest accomplishments of your life. Memories, awards, and other artifacts highlighting your accomplishments.
Write a personal paragraph addressing the following questions:
What does your home look like?
Who is in attendance?
What would you like people to say about you?
What will you have achieved by the time you are 80 years old?
Conclude your paragraph with the steps you can take in the next few weeks or months towards successfully achieving the milestones that you would like described at your 80th birthday.
Then share your thoughts on the following in a separate paragraph:
How did this exercise make you feel?
Did this help you to better focus on your own goals and dreams?
How does it tie in to your personal priorities?
Are you actually taking steps to create the kind of life that you wish to accomplish by the age of 80?
