I want you to imagine your ideal job, position, or personal business. What's it like? What do you do each day? Why do you like it?
Now, hold that image in your mind, with as much detail as possible. Write it down if it helps.
Now, I want you to come up with reasons you'd want to leave that job, position, sell or change the business, or otherwise alter your great, wonderful, perfect situation. Write down the reasons you'll eventually want something else.
Everything changes, and what we want may not satisfy us as we ourselves change. So take a moment to ask what will change your mind once you're in an ideal job – that way you can prepare for what's next.
