Hi NCarol5,

I don't have this course so I don't know if what I'm about to say is redundant or suggested there but one thing I have done that has been very helpful in identifying my goals is to write down my ideal day, one I would like to live every day, no holds barred, in as much detail as possible. Not necessarily a day like one I would have on vacation (unless you'd like to be on vacation every day of your life) but one that incorporates my work (which I love but needs some tweaking), my family life, my personal time/interests, all in good balance. Then I compared my day to my reality and wherever there was a difference, I knew that I could identify it as a goal to work towards. I got this tip from a book called Wishcraft by Barbara Sher.
Hope this helps!
