When we think about an upcoming weekend, we often think about what we want to do.
We want to go out to brunch. We want to go for a hike. We want to sleep in. We want to get a work project done.
But sometimes even when we do the things we think we wanted to do, we feel unsatisfied.
Instead, what if we spent more time thinking first about what we want to feel, both during and at the end of the weekend?
Do we want to feel rejuvenated? Reconnected? Caught up?
If you start with the feeling that you hope to achieve and work backwards to figure out what you need to do to get there, you’re more likely to get where you really wanted to go in the first place.
