Dreams & Reality - (Bonus Topics: IDOARRT, Brene Brown's Insight...)

Savvy Saturdays (7/24/21)

Savvy Idea: A healthy dose of reality can help us take realistic steps to get closer to achieving our dreams.

I was talking with a friend about the future, and realized how easily disillusioned we can be with our dreams.

There’s nothing wrong with dreams. It’s important to have dreams to help us push forward in life. They build up the intrinsic motivation that gives us perspective and direction in the things we do.

But we are also in need of a healthy dose of reality to help manifest that direction.

We can believe one thing when reality calls for another.

We cannot make a leap to our dreams without an understanding of reality.

By learning how the system of reality works, and seeing your dreams in tandem with reality, you can slowly figure out if your dream has a shot at becoming integrated into mainstream reality.

This feels like it dampens your dream, but it actually gives greater probability of success and not accidentally fall for a pipe dream in the things you do.

Of course, all this may take some time, but it sure beats wasting time trying to force reality onto our dreams. And it’s so much more effective to try to move our dreams slowly into reality.

Questions to ponder: 🤔

  • What dreams do you have that you want to achieve?

  • What aspects of reality are you not accepting that is preventing you from pursuing your dream?

I learned about the IDOARRT method of meeting preparation recently.

It’s very interesting take, as it requires only a little bit of prep to bring about a lot of value and direction for meetings.
