A Dreamer and a Doer: Putting your Day Dreams on the Calendar
We all know people whose dreams are legendary and huge. Every time you see them, you might hear about a new idea — the book they want to write, the business they want to start, the invention idea they have that someone should create. But, they may or may not actually make it happen.
Then, you probably know planners, too. They are hardly ever late, have everything scheduled, and it’s definitely not easy for them to change plans if something unexpected comes up in their day, because every minute is scheduled. A lot gets done day to day, but there isn’t a lot of time devoted to the big picture.
The truth is, there is a sweet spot between these two extremes.
That’s where we come in.
How can you go from being a dreamer to a doer?
Or better yet, how can you be the best of both?
The biggest shift you have to make is not about logistics or when or how you plan, but instead it’s about shifting your mindset.
When you think of yourself as someone who gets things done, who uses their planner to create the life of their dreams, it gets even easier to be that person.
Is your mindset toward planning fixed (as in, you don’t think you can change it. It is how it is.) or can it grow?
When you think of yourself as able to grow and change, it’s so much easier to evolve.
So, how can you rewrite your story of who you are?
How can you emerge as the dreamer with a plan, the planner who makes time for their big dreams every day?
Start with an affirmation in the morning where you declare this to be part of WHO you are. You are here for a reason. You have a mission. You are here to do big things.
Next, put it on your calendar.
Where are you going to start?
Try to create your schedule as if you are already that person who you want to become.
How would they plan their week?
How would they start their day?
Slowly but surely, you’ll become them.
