To clarify something is to make it clearer so that everyone understands the true meaning. The dreams you have while you are asleep you either forget altogether or remember only little pieces of it. The dreams I’m talking about are the ones you have while you are awake, conscious of your life and the universe around you. Clarifying these dreams is a first step to fulfilling them.
How can you make your dream clearer? Write it down in one sentence. Make the sentence as specific as you can. It’s important to write this down. The act of writing makes it more concrete and helps you to think about it clearly. When you can do that, you have successfully clarified your dream. If you can’t, work on it until you do.
One definition of goal-setting from the book Promoting Executive Function in the Classroom is: “the ability to identify a guiding purpose for his or her actions, based on an awareness of personal strengths and limitations, and a CLEAR vision of the desired final result”. If you are not clear, it will be difficult to create action steps that will lead to the final result you envision. The beginning of any planning you do in life is to understand what you want to end up with. If you don’t understand that, you can’t make a plan that will accomplish what you desire.
