I’m only half way through this gem, but I have to say that The Desire Map by Danielle LaPorte is a total game changer.
There’s two parts to this book: the written/theory part and the workbook. I’ve almost finished the first part of the book and can’t wait to begin the workbook! I love the idea of focusing on how we want to feel first and then lay out our intentions/goals.
We have the procedures of achievement upside down. We go after the stuff we want to have, get, accomplish, and experience outside of ourselves. And we hope, yearn, pray that we’ll be fulfilled when we get there. It’s backwards. It’s outside in. And it’s running us in circles.
What if, first, we got clear on how we actually wanted to feel in our life, and then we laid out our intentions? What if your most desired feelings consciously informed how you plan your day, your year, your career, your holidays — your life?
I saw Danielle interviewed live on Marie tv a few weeks ago, and was totally mesmerised by everything she had to say. I totally recommend putting aside 22 minutes to watch this episode! Two incredible women singing the same song 🙂
What about you lovely? Have you read this book? I’d love to know how it’s impacted your view on goal setting.
