Challenge Myself: Day #180 Write the Plot

Today is Day #180 of the Just For Today Challenge. I am also integrating the Live Happy into my daily Challenge. The Live Happy Challenge for today says to write the desired result and plot the course backwards.

The book says,

A terrific exercise for seeing if you have figured out all the potential obstacles in your way to having your dream come true is to figure out exactly what the end result is and then plotting events backward to the beginning to the first step.

Perhaps you dream is to win the lottery. Start with winning it and work backward listing the events.
  • You play everyday, spending a dollar on the Quick Pick.
  • Even before the day you place your first bet, you choose your favorite numbers.
  • Every day for two weeks, you walk to the convenience store in your neighborhood to play.
  • You play at 7:00 PM.
  • Then, on the fourteenth day, your numbers come up.

Just For Today: I will make an outline  of my plan.

From the book: Live Happy


  1. My youngest is doing something similar to this by imagining herself driving every day in her head. It's a way to help her ease her anxiety.

  2. Elsie After thinking about it I can see how this can work with someone dealing with anxiety issues. You have already planned it out- every detail- and it would help to have all the steps right there.

    I know many addicts and those who love them can and do suffer from anxiety issues. Thank you for sharing that here and maybe someone reading this who deals with anxiety can also do this to help with coping issues.
