Over the last few days and maybe even weeks, depending on how fast you're going through this course, you've unveiled a lot of things about yourself. You've read books, you've taken personality tests, you've created mood boards. Now, it's time to transform your ideas into written format. For this exercise. I want you to write down 100 of your biggest goals. It could be anything. It could be to climb Everest, it could be to cook with Gordon Ramsey, it could be to become president.
I do not care how grandiose these ideas are. I want you to write down every single idea that comes to your mind and I don't want you to hold yourself back from doing that. You may only accomplish 20 of these goals in your lifetime, but that's okay. The most crucial part of this is to train your brain to not inhibit what you're writing, okay? Write down anything that comes to your mind and do not hold back.
I don't care if one of your goals is to play professional soccer one day and you're currently 50 years old. I don't care. Write down whatever. Here's a list of my personal goals that I wrote down almost four years ago. One, go to Europe. Two, live in San Francisco. Three, start a successful YouTube channel. I did that, thankfully. Four, write a book. Five, write an insanely viral article. Six, start a consulting/coaching business. Seven, maintain a high level of fitness. Number eight, go to Coachella.
Number nine, write a screenplay. And ten, get nominated for an award in entertainment. Out of these first ten goals, I've already done four of them. The problem is I have another, you know, 90+ goals on my list that I'm far from accomplishing. I have scanned and attached the journal entry where I list down all of my goals in the description of this lesson just in case you want to, you know, take a look at it and see how crazy I am.
It will also give you a couple of ideas for yourself, I'm sure. You may be feeling a little overwhelmed here. You may be looking at your list and saying, "There's no way that I'm going to be able to visit the pyramids anytime soon, like, it's not going to happen." When these thoughts come into your mind, banish them immediately. Say, "Bye-bye," they're not going to stay in your head for long. It's really normal to get these thoughts. I get them all the time. But for the purpose of this whole course, just tell them to leave peacefully.
Here are a few other things to keep in mind that are really going to help you during this exercise. One, break down your goals into five major categories. Break it down into work, relationships, location, house, and hobbies. For instance, one of my goals is to own a house in Bohol, Philippines. So that would go underneath both of my location category and my house location.
I have attached a worksheet for your convenience where you can list down all of your goals from one to 100. Then after you're done, I want you to print out the second worksheet and sort of, like, sort your goals underneath each of these five categories. This is going to help us in the next lesson, I promise. Let's take a look at some of my goals. I want to give you a couple of examples. One, take a road trip out West with my dad. Okay, that goes underneath "relationships." It's a relationship goal with my dad. Two, go to Europe. That's a location. I want to go to York.
That's under the "location" category. Three, run a marathon. That would probably be under hobbies, you know, since running a marathon is something you do in your free time for fun. Four, work on a movie set. That's another one of my goals. That's "work." When you're writing down these goals and you're at a loss for what goals to write next, just think in terms of the category. That might sort of jog your memory about some things that you may have wanted to do with, you know, your father or your mom or your siblings, or your significant other if you're thinking about relationships.
Or if you're thinking about hobbies, you might think, "Oh, I always wanted to learn how to surf. So I'm going to write that down." Think about it that way. Writing down 100 goals is different than writing down ten. You're forcing your mind to scramble. It's sort of like lifting heavy weights at the gym. You're going to stretch your mind and you're going to find ideas that are buried within the deepest, deepest part of your mind. And I want to get everything out on the table. This is the last time you're going to write down all of your goals, okay?
And this is the last time you'll ever need to. So spend about 20 minutes, 20 to 30 minutes, writing down 100 goals, please, and then sort them into their particular categories at the end. That's going to save us some time in this upcoming lesson. Congratulations. We are on the brink of transitioning into the planning stage of this course. I'm very, very happy. Great job so far. And let's get into the next lesson, which is boiling down these 100 goals into five major life goals that we are going to shoot for over the next year. Let's go.
