So far, we've tested ourselves. We've maxed out our ideas for a dream life. Like the big bang, we've sort of exploded with goals, mood boards, and possible directions for our life over the next year. My friends, now it's time to choose a handful of them. Obviously, we can't do all 100 goals within one year. We can only choose a couple.
This is one of the last lessons of the ideation phase. Sure, you know, I'd love to run a marathon one day. But do I want to do it right now? No, I don't have enough time for it right now. So we're going to have to pick five that we want to focus in on. From your list of a hundred goals. I want you to write down some of your favorites via the attached worksheet that you can download and print out for this particular lesson. Preferably, we'd like to have five options for each topic. For instance, five goals for work, five goals for relationships, five goals for living location, etc. We're going to give you five different goals. One for work, one for hobbies, one for living location, one for house, and then one for relationships.
Those are the five things that we're going to be focusing on. So after you've chosen your favorites, your top 25 goals, I should say, you're going to do your best to rank them. So rank them on a scale of one to ten by these three criteria. One, how excited it makes you. One being not so excited, ten being very excited. Two, how long it will take you. One being very, very, very long and ten being not long at all.
And then number three, how easy it is. One being very hard and ten being very easy. Whatever goal is closest to 30 in each category is your winner. Now, if for some reason you aren't happy with your particular winner, chances are, it's a goal that's going to take you a long time and a goal that's pretty difficult to accomplish. For instance, creating a blog that generates $5,000 per month is pretty darn hard. Okay?
But if I reframe that goal and lower my expectations down to say $2,000 per month, create a blog that makes $2,000 per month, then that's much more doable and easier and therefore, my score for that goal will be higher. If you really want to choose a particular goal, just downsize it. Try to make it a little more attainable. Here's something for me. By the end of the year, I want to make a media company here in the Philippines.
That's work. By the end of the year, I want to take my dad on a trip out West. That's relationships. By the end of this year, I want to begin building a house in Bohol, Philippines. That's house. By the end of this year, I want to live in Bohol, Philippines. That's location. And by the end of this year, I want to be a blue belt in Jiu-Jitsu. That's hobbies. Now I have all of my five goals that I'm shooting for for this year. What you might not realize is we've just built our roadmap for the next 365 days.
These five goals are what we're going to go to Google University for in the upcoming lessons. We're going to figure out how to accomplish these goals. Or, I'm going to figure out how to become a blue belt in Jiu-Jitsu or how to buy property in Bohol. Will you accomplish everything you've ever wanted after these 365 days? No, absolutely not. But you will have created a dream life. These five goals are dreams of mine. And after one year, I will have turned all of these five dream goals into reality.
Is that not a dream life? And after you get done with these five goals, you can move on to the next ones. It's pretty cool and this is really where we start to really focus in with this course and where a lot of things start to come together. We are nearly out of the ideation stage. But before we move on to planning, we need to take a quick detour to Reddit to figure out whether what we want is actually what we want.
That's something I wish I would have done before I chose my major in college. So let's make sure we get it right this time. Let's make one quick pit stop before we move on.
