"Dream Board" is a more positive alternative to a bucket list. There is a Dream Board process called "dreamlining" that applies timelines to what most would consider dreams." The process requires a short timeline of 6-12 months. Once you list dream things to do and dream items to purchase, then determine your Target Monthly Income (TMI). Focus on only a few of the top dreams in your first timeline. Finally, set three realistic steps and take action now, preferably one step should be requesting advice from someone who has already accomplished the dream. Full credit for "dreamlining" should be given to Timothy Ferriss. He provides a full explanation of it in his book entitled "The 4-Hour Workweek." In this book Ferriss has included some popular methodologies for saving time, however. Ferriss makes some good suggestions on how to take advantage of your new found free time. His book is usually available to purchase at one of the online bookseller websites.
Place your Dream Board where you will see it every day. It does not have to be front and center in your home or at work, but it should be visible for your benefit. It should be a constant reminder of your dreams. Do not get discouraged if some dreams take longer, but do not quit. Concentrate on your steps towards making your dreams into reality. Even if you work on one dream at a time you will be in good company. It is a methodology adopted by many successful people. As Charles Emerson Winchester III of the 4077 MASH said, “I do one thing, I do it very well and then I move on.”
Make your dreams a reality in 2012.
