Dreamlining is an interesting strategy shared by Tim Ferris in his book The 4-Hour Workweek. Here’s how it works:

Dreamlining is a strategy in which you group your dreams into two batches:

  1. Six-Month Dreams and
  2. Twelve-Month Dreams

For each batch, list five dreams you would like to realize in six months and then twelve months.

What dreams you should focus on:

  • Being Dreams – Who would you like to be in six months and in twelve months (CPA, Author, Business owner, etc.)?
  • Doing Dreams – What actions would you like to take in six months and in twelve months (traveling, write a book, read X# of books, etc.)?
  • Having Dreams – What would you like to have in six months and twelve months ($10,000, New Home, Baby, etc.)?

In my Dreamsetting strategy, I provide a template for helping you to define your dreams. You can download my free Dreamsetting eBook here. When you combine the Dreamsetting strategy with the Dreamlining strategy, you not only create a blueprint for your ideal, perfect life, you also create a timeline for making that life a reality.

  1. That was a great way to look at it. Six month and 12 month goals. It made looking at things less difficult and helped me see it more clearly. Going to download now!
