Mindmapping off of things that bring joy allows one to visualize different future lives.

  1. Find an activity that is highly engaging, another energizing, and one that brings flow state. A “good time journal” can help.
  2. Start a mind map with each and free associate for several minutes each.
  3. Pick three items from each outer ring which stand out.
  4. Write a job description for the selected items, and sketch a picture of what this life would look like.


Exploration space is necessary for best ideas.
