Call It a Plan Not a Dream

5:00:00 AM

Okay fellow dreamers, let's get real. I know how fun it is to let creative ideas dance around in our heads and how euphoric it feels to let imaginations run wild, but it's time to get serious. Now if you want your dreams to stay dreams this post isn't for you.

Whether you'll admit or not, dreaming is safe. When you call something a "dream" it makes it sound unattainable, unrealistic and far out of reach. We all do it, but when we begin to call our dreams plans there's a sense of accountability that wasn't there before. Now there's pressure to make it happen. We don't want our dreams to be tainted or feel pressured, but the truth of the matter is you have to put in work...a lot of work.

When we plan for things we make deadlines, checklists and schedules for ourselves. Dreams that have been in our heads are now down on paper. Let the beauty of your dreams inspire you to pursue it passionately. While it may be difficult it should never feel hopeless. If that happens reevaluate why and how you are chasing your dreams.

This year I've been persistent in pursuing my plans and it has had many ups and downs, but overall it's been an amazing ride. I'm learning so much and have achieved more than what I expected. That's one of the wonderful parts of pursuing your goals. You never know what you may learn or who you might meet along the way.

Ok so how do you make a dream into a plan?

1) Write it down- Write it somewhere and keep it in a pace you look often. That way you are always reminded. You could even make it your background on your phone.

2) Stop the doubt- Don't second guess yourself before you even start. Say why it can happen instead of why it won't.

3) Start now- The time will never feel right so you may as well start right where you are with what you have. Even a small step is better than no progress.
