I've been thinking a lot about my values. Specifically, the qualities of character that I value and want to see in myself but also what I value in terms of how I spend my time.

It was called The 4-Hour Workweek (opens new window), which sounds great, honestly. After he had read it for a while, he related to me on of the excercises the book tasked him with; write out at least ten "unrealistic dreams". They could be Haves, things you want to have; Doings, things you would like to do; or "Beings", things that you would like to be. Then, knowing you can't achieve all of your unrealistic dreams in one lifetime, choose three to focus your energy on.
