~ HINTS ~

This page provides hints that might prove helpful as you work with your DreamSpeck.

DECISION CRITERIA

As you read this page, consider the decision criteria you use in other areas of your life; these might include buying a vehicle, buying a home, deciding where to go on vacation, and other, minor concerns.

Decision Criteria for a New Home:

-Geographic Location

-Proximity to Schools

-Size of the Home, to allow for family expansion (children, grandparents)

-Proximity to Amenities (Restaurants, Sports Parks, Theaters)

Decision Criteria for a New Vehicle:

-Vehicle type (Car, Truck, Motorcycle)

-Gas Mileage

-Sticker Price

-Payment Options (Financing, Leasing)

Decision Criteria for a Vacation:

-Time of Year (Winter: Skiing; Summer: Beach)

-Location (Resort, Cabin)

-Travel (Plane, Train, Automobile)

-Cost (Cash, Credit)

Next, think about your personal life and who you want to be around–or, close to:

-Life Partner or Soul Mate

-Clone of you

-Anti-Clone of you

-Someone with whom you share activities (sports; theater; lounging around)

Finally, think about how you set up your decision criteria.

-Make a checklist–and categorize the items in order of importance to you.

-Create a journal to help you analyze the Pro’s and Con’s of each aspect.

-Update the journal as you discover new options or decide to discard one.

This is, generally, the same process you can use to realize your dream. The key is getting very clear about what it is that you really want and accepting the reality of what you discover to be your actual options.

CONSIDER THE 4C’s:

CLARITY: The key to rapid realization of your DreamSpeck is: being very clear about what you want. Review your DreamSpeck regularly to ensure that the wording continues to clearly-express the elements of your dream.

Success happens AtTheSpeedOfChange!


CHANGES: Review the life changes you have made–or plan to make–in order to achieve your goal; this includes you (who), the details of your ideal outcome (what), your location (where), the timing (when), the motivation for change (why), and a plan to achieve the desired result (how).

CONTACTS: Most successful people can provide a long list of contacts that assisted them along their road to success, whether directly (making a connection) or indirectly (by providing example behavior). Make contacts with people at every level of life because you never know who might know of someone else who can provide access to something–or someone–helpful.

CHUNKING: This process will most likely come into play if your goal is lofty. In other words, you might be reaching beyond what you can achieve in the immediate future, whether due to lack of education, inability to relocate in a timely fashion or other temporary roadblock. You may want to consider breaking-up the path to your end goal into discrete blocks so you can see progress along the way.

Consider the end goal and then identify the reason you can’t achieve that in the near term. Once you have identified the roadblock, consider what you must do to get beyond that place. Then keep working backwards to present time, noting each roadblock and a plna to overcome the block. This will create a roadmap for you to follow–and keep updated–as you move to your final goal.

APTITUDES: The last, but most important, hint is: discover your aptitudes!

Whether you achieve this education via personal effort, by reading an authoritative book by Howard Gardner (Frames Of Mind) or via a reputable testing facility like Johnson O’Conner Research Foundation, this is a bit of primary education that appears to be crucial to providing foundational information as a basis for helping you prepare your ideal DreamSpeck.
