Day 16

Gratitude:  (The free PDF below provides lined entries for your practice!)

Starting fresh with your Gratitude and Vision each day helps to develop a sense of curiosity. When we set a 1-year goal, a New Years’ Resolution, or a concrete business plan, we’re taking a snapshot of what we wanted at that moment. It leaves little room for growth, change, or curiosity outside of the scope of that particular moment’s desire.

Writing out your vision every morning not only helps you learn what you gravitate towards, but it also exercises your sense of wonder about the future. When your desires can change slightly (or dramatically) from day to day, you’ll begin to integrate the idea that the future, being unknown, is full of possibilities. Instead of pinning your satisfaction to a specific goal or outcome, you can get excited at the unknown possibilities of your future Vision.

The above is an excerpt from the upcoming The Lyceum Course Journal. We will be releasing it here for free as a Daily Prompt blog post. If you would like a physical copy, we will link to it here once it is released.


Suggested Use:

I realize a daily journal prompt on a blog is a little weird. This is how I would suggest using it: Open your favorite note-taking software such as Evernote, copy and paste this post into it, and write your daily entries there.
